Subject: adding patches

adding patches

From: daniel dalton <>

I can now compile the source to make my rockbox build using cygwin.
Thankyou to everyone who helped me. However I now want to add a patch to
my rockbox build.
So to add a patch should I do the following.
1 Navigate to my build dir which is in the rockbox source folder. 2 type
../tools/configure 3 Type 11 to select h300. 4 Type N to select normal
build. 5 Type patch -p0 < patchfile.diff To add my patch.

Then if I do this I get lots of errors.
Does anyone know what I am doing rong and how I can fix this?

I have a few more questions.
When I download the patch can I name it anything I want with the diff
extension? Also should I just put the patches in my build dir which is
in my rockbox source folder? To patch a .patch file do I just type patch
-p0 < patchfile.patch All help is greatly appreciated.
