Well, a patch is supposed to modify a file. If it asks what file, you are in the right way. All you have to do is return to the site where you downloaded this and search for the name of the file to be patched.
You can also try to open the patch with a text editor and search for clues.
Sorry for the long response... I dunno if you figured it out already but it should work. I'm going to probably be wrong on this but the .diff extention is for an undified diff file. Although I could be wrong. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong here. The '.patch' extention should work.
I tried a compile with .patch file. The kernel compile went like a charm and used the new kernel but again the same problem. I probably didnt apply the patch correctly. I'll do it again and give the feedback.
Thanks for replying,
and yes you dont have to be sorry for not responding quickly, I understand that we all have other things to do. Thanks for bearing with me.
