Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I recently downloaded a package along with a patch.I can't compile it without the patch.Can someone tell me how do I go about it?The patch I have is not compressed.How do I apply the patch?Please help.
Sorry for the bother,but I have the rep-gtk tarball and it's gtk-2.4 patch in text form.According to the reply,do I untar the rep-gtk package and apply the patch with the command you posted or do I need to do something else.Please help.
I did as wa required,but the compiler throws up this error.What am I missing?
[root@localhost rep-gtk-0.18]# patch -p1 < rep-gtk-0.18-gtk2.4.diff (Stripping trailing CRs from patch.) can't find file to patch at input line 3 Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option? The text leading up to this was: -------------------------- |--- rep-gtk-0.18/rep-gtk.h.orig2004-03-26 14:10:18.000000000 -0500 |+++ rep-gtk-0.18/rep-gtk.h2004-03-26 14:11:15.000000000 -0500 --------------------------
I copied the patch file to the extracted rep-gtk directory and executed the commands it.I think the files to be patched are the rep-gtk header file and the gtk-compatibility header file.Is there some way I can get over this problem? Please help.
Distribution: RH 6.2, Gen2, Knoppix,arch, bodhi, studio, suse, mint
you give the pathname of the directory to be patched to patch. the patch doesn't need to be in the directory with the files.
cat -cd /rep-gtk-0.18-gtk2.4.diff | patch -d /rep-gtk-0.18 -p1
if both are in the root directory.
