That patch is easy enough to apply by hand!
Code:
cd wbar-what.ever.version
patch -Np1 -i ../01_gcc43_fixes.diff
The ../ assumes that your patch is one directory level up from the top of the source tree.

Also, consider investing in a dictionary and manual of style. Complete English words and some semblance of proper sentence structure are appreciated over the IM, l33t-speak equivalents.

Thank you very much.Its working fine.
As you must have noticed I'm from Honolulu[if u dont know where is this located on earth, just google out], we are not a developed country and I'm learning this new language. As far as the dictionary is concerned, its a no no , may be I can invest some time in that "style" part but again I need some online links , so if you are aware of such links please repond else don't ping back. I hope this time its no IM or ****-speak. Thank you.
