binutils patch error


hi,

I got the following error in 5.4 binutils-2.18 pass 1
I am using lfs version-6.4

lfs@ubuntu:/mnt/lfs/sources$ patch -Np1 -i binutils-2.18-configure-1.patch
can't find file to patch at input line 11
Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?

Hi,

You need to do the patch command from the packet source directory.

Code:
tar jxf binutils-2.18.tar.bz2
cd binutils-2.18

patch -Np1 -i binutils-2.18-configure-1.patch

mkdir -v ../binutils-build
cd ../binutils-build

../binutils-2.18/configure <options>
Hope this helps.

Post is edited: patch step is now in the correct place (thanks to exvor for pointing this out).

Actually druuna you wouldent do this int he binutils-build directory but rather in the unpacked source directory.

this assumes you have the patch file in your sources.

Code:
 
cd binutils-2.18 
patch -Np1 -i ../binutils-2.18-configure-1.patch

@exvor: You are correct, I overlooked that step....

I'll rectify my earlier post for future references/reading.

Thanks for pointing this out.
