Is there something new to this? I do appreciate the dropdown list for RHEL version. I guess no more search tool.

Jeff, Yes, you are right. There is no search tool in this app.

I often searched for patches by bugzilla number. Will not that function revive in the future?

I would like to have this functionality too.

+100500 also use it a lot.

I believe the search function is a must for many users. What's the rationale behind the decision to remove it?

Searching by bug number or a CVE ID was extremely useful. Missing that functionality a lot.

rhcb appears to not be loading, it just runs a spinner. rhel8 release causing this?


Can you try it again? It works well for me.


It loads. The source tree browser work but for rhel-8 it doesn't list the patch files. I guess there's a new patching scheme?


We do not have pathes for RHEL 8.0.

There should be patches now! haha.

Right now source and patches access works for 7.5, 8 but nothing loads for 7.6 ?

Yeah and the patches don't work for the newer 6 as well.

Hi Jean-Mickael, It seems there is name change in the source code of this kernel . We are working with relevant teams for it.

Thanks, Dong

Access to 7.6 is working now, thanks you.

list of patches for last released kernel with sack fixes (released 17 Jun)is still empty today (29 Jun) both for RHEL8, RHEL7 and RHEL6.

Thank you for report the issue.

Thank you, all works correctly now!

The search function for patches by bugzilla number is gone in new application?

We found there has some mismatch between Errata and source code repo. We are trying to coordinate this issue with kernel and Errata team.

Please download *.srpm as a workaround until the issue fixed

Thank you

Thanks, Jean-Mickael

RHEL7.9 is not published yet, but RHEL7.8 updated kernels are already absent. i mean there is only 3.10.0-1127.el7 available, no 3.10.0-1127.8.2.el7, no recent 3.10.0-1127.10.1.el7.

Could you please publish them? Thank you!

Guys, thank you very much for just fast fix! i confirm, kernel patches are available now!

Could you please repair 3.10.0-1127.18.2.el7 kernel: it does not show any patches/sources

Hi Vasily, Source code & patch for kernel-3.10.0-1127.18.2.el7 has been published, please check.

The list does not show the latest RHEL7 kernel released. The latest it shows is 18.1, but the latest is 19.1 available. Am I missing anything?

Hi Dale,

The latest RHEL-7 kernel source code had been published on RHCB. please check

Thank you

Could someone tell me the upstream code base to apply the patch list? I failed to apply the patch list on Linux 3.10.

Could someone tell me the code base for these patchset? I tried the patchset for 3.10.0-957.27.2.el7 but failed to apply on Linux kernel 3.10.


All z-stream kernel patches are base on the current RHEL-X-Y GA version. The kernel-3.10.0-957.27.2.el7 is base on kernel-3.10.0-957.el7. Red Hat Code Browser is only support view the code source/different . If you are trying to upgrade a specific version, please using YUM to do it


Could you lease add last released RH7.9 kernels: 3.10.0-1160.6.2.el7 and 3.10.0-1160.11.1.el7

Hi Vasily, 3.10.0-1160.11.1.el7 has been published on RHCB, please check. And I checked on errata, there is no release of kernel 3.10.0-1160.6.2.el7, Please double confirm.


you're right I was wrong. I missed 1160.6.2 with 1169.6.1 released here now it is published too, thank you!

Could you please publish sources of last released RHEL7.9 kernel 3.10.0-1160.15.2.el7?

Great. now I can access sources of 3.10.0-1160.15.2.el7, however could you please publish its patches too?

The patches has been published in rhcb app.

DEar Red Hat, could you please repair the output of sources and patches for last RHEL7.9 kernel 1160.25.1.el7?

Done. Required code is available. is broken.


Could you please fix sorting of patches if its number is >10000 ? Please take look at It should show patches from 1001 to 1100, but actually shows 10000-10009, then 1001, then 10010-10019, then 1002 and so on.

Hello Vasily,

Thanks for report the issue !

Honestly, We can't fix it for now :(

The all codes of kernel source code and patches are stored in a backend SCM system. It's not support re-sort files order. There are so many files in patches so we can not re-order in our side :(

We will try to investigate if there has some way could fix it Thanks a lot !

Broken Links:

Hope you will fix them, thank you

Hi Hector, The kernel-4.18.0-305.34.2.el8 has been repaired:

Thanks alot. Appreciated your quick reply.

The kernel-4.18.0-305.40.2.el8 patch has been repaired:

Is there any way of downloading the source code and/or the patches for a specific kernel version?

Hi Arianna, The Red Hat Code Browser is only provide view source code and patches online. If you need download the source code, you should download the kernel srpm package for specific version


This needs a search functionality at the minimum

Is there a way of obtaining a searchable list of the patches included in the distribution? I tried looking if there is some release notes or changelog with the list of patches in the src.rpm but I can't find any.

Hi all,

We did not provide a search function under the current design, as it was too hard to do so. We will evaluate the effort again. If you share with us more details about your scenarios, that will help when we make decisions for this application.

Thank you for considering the search function.

Even the ability to simply search for patch files by a bugzilla number would be very helpful.

For example, if my system has kernel related issues, I search the latest kernel changelog. I've searched the knowledge bases and bugzilla site when I see an entry of interest, but often don't know the details. If I can find the patch related to the bugzilla number from the Red Hat Code Browser, I can easily learn more about the bugzilla and decide if it helps me solve my problem. Now I have no choice but to search for patches one by one.
