Subject: Re: How to install patches?
From: Lucas (
Date: 2004-04-15

I've got my system up and running to compile the source. I tested it and it
works. My problem now is patching the file. Any help with that? I looked at
the patch documentation, but it's not great. what file do I have to run from
"patch" to get it running so I can then actaully patch my file?
