Unhappy gnu patch problems

I'm trying to use gnu patch to patch a file, I did the usual patch -p0 filename.patch but the patch utility just displays nothing and doesn't take me to command prompt but I can use Ctrl + Alt + Delete to reboot.

zcat /path/to/file.gz | patch -p(#)

# = the amount of directories to patch ... (silly i know)
Example = If you are in /linux/src/kernel.x.x.x and want to patch it with a patch in /linux/src you would do:
zcat /linux/src/patchfile.gz | patch -p1
to make it easy, just throw the patch in the same dir though and use -p0 lol
