patch: **** Can't open patch file ../binutils-2.22-build_fix-1.patch : No such file or directory

sorry if this should be obvious, but,
Why am I getting the error message?
How do I fix it?

When you untared binutils did you cd into binutils dir
You should be standing in $LFS/sources/binutils-2.22 then run commands

The ../means back 1 level so it would read from the sources dir and patch in binutils-2.22 dir

chapter 5.3 last "important note"

DavidLee1A 12-28-2012 03:12 PM

ok, since I'm in the sources directory, I modified to:

lfs@host:/mnt/lfs/sources$ patch -Np1 -i binutils-2.22-build_fix-1.patch
and get

Why change the book


lfs@host:/mnt/lfs/sources$ patch -Np1 -i binutils-2.22-build_fix-1.patch

lfs@host:/mnt/lfs/sources$ patch -Np1 -i ../binutils-2.22-build_fix-1.patch

DavidLee1A 12-28-2012 03:23 PM

the book: Change to the sources directory.

and I'm in the sources directory

How did I change the book?

spiky0011 12-28-2012 03:28 PM

Did you read chapter 5.3 important part

Change to the directory created when the package was extracted.

Follow the book's instructions for building the package

I will go back and reread and check stuff ... so I'm sure I'm doing this right and then I'll post back. If this is sensitive to my location then I want to see if I can figure out WHY it's going to be influenced by that.
Thank you for quickly responding ... it will be a few hours before I post back here.
