.SH NAME
ketchup \- Utility to update the kernel source
.SH SYNOPSIS
.B ketchup
[\fIoptions\fR] \fI<ver>\fR
.SH DESCRIPTION
This tool synchronises a local kernel tree with a desired kernel version and
patch set from a kernel.org mirror. The default requires a GPG key on your
keyring, to verify the identity of the patches and source archives. Entire
kernel images are not downloaded unless necessary, so bandwidth is saved.
Patches are applied and removed as necessary to attain the requested version.

.SH CONFIGURATION
Ketchup will read files named \fI.ketchuprc\fP in $HOME and in the target kernel directory, with the kernel directory taking precedence.
.PP

.HP
.B default_tree
.IP
The \fBdefault_tree\fP option specifies the kernel version to work with if one is not given on the command line.
.HP
.B precommand
.IP
The \fBprecommand\fP option specifies a command to run before synchronising the kernel tree to the required version.
.HP
.B postcommand
.IP
The \fBpostcommand\fP option specifies a command to run after synchronising the kernel tree to the required version.
