Subject: applying multiple patches with one command

applying multiple patches with one command

Hi list.
I have a question about patches. Earlier today someone sent me a load of
patches for rockbox.
He very thoughtfully provided me with both one big file of all his patches,
and the patch files individually.
I applied the big file of patches, and it applied fine I got no errors.
However when i tried to build a new build of rb it wouldn't build because of
one error in the code of one of the patches something to do with one of the
functions not being used i'm not completely sure.
However I am very reluctant to not apply his patches just because of one
error. But He is quite busy so i'm not sure when he will get around to
fixing it and i really don't want to anoy him by seeming to complain, so i'd
like to find a work around that will work as a temporary solution. The
problem is there are so many patches, over 30 in all. I don't really want to
have to sit there applying each patch one by one, doing a test build to see
if that one caused the problem and then applying the next one as that would
take hours.
I was thinking of applying them in batches of 5 or something til i get the
same build error and then work out from there which is the patch with the
error and then just not apply that one.
However I was wondering could someone please tell me is there a command i
can use to apply multiple patch files in one go as I haven't been able to
find out. Of course if someone has a better idea of what i could do to sort
this i'd like to here it.
Thanks very much for your help.
Alex.
