I'm working my way through this and try not to think like an MCSE... but man it's weird.
My question is a difference I noticed between the documentation and what I have on my RH 8 system.
I downloaded the one big tar and extracted everything fine. But as I try to run certain sections that deal with patches, I noticed that the file names are not the same.
patch -Np1 -i ../findutils-4.1.patch &&
is mentioned in the docs, but on my machine the file is "findutils_41patch" after I have bunzip2'd it.
Is this correct? Am I not unzipping it correctly? This is the command I am following
I realize I can just modify the filename in the command, but I'm just worried I'm making a simple mistake.
OT - I have learned so much from this. Thank you very much to all those involved in creating this document to follow.
