"can't find file to patch at input line 4
Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?
The text leading up to this was:
|diff -urN linux-2.4.20/CREDITS linux-2.4.21/CREDITS
|--- linux-2.4.20/CREDITS 2002-11-28 15:53:08.000000000 -0800
|+++ linux-2.4.21/CREDITS 2003-06-13 07:51:29.000000000 -0700
File to patch:"
