OK, because you think I am stupid, i tell you all I do (as root) :
cp somewhereonmydisk/mysql++-1.7.9.tar.gz /usr/local/src/.
cp somewhereonmydisk/mysql++-gcc-3.0.patch.gz /usr/local/src/.
tar zxvf mysql-1.7.9.tar.gz
gzip -d mysql++-gcc-3.0.patch.gz
patch -p1 < mysql++-gcc-3.0.patch
I have tried to type this last line in /usr/local/src (as I said above),
in /usr/local/src/mysql++-1.7.9 (the exact line was patch -p1 <
OK : so is it what you meant ?
if no, OK, I am stupid : and because I am stupid would you please give
me the whole lines ?
if yes, OK, I have done what you said and there is a problem somewhere...
Just to tell you I am not the only one : look at the mails on this list
which contains the word patch in there object : since 06/2001, there
have been at least 8 persons asking this question ! And the only
proposed solution was to enter the name of each file one by one as the
patch asks for it !
I really DO think, it is possible to do better than that !
Maybe a patch more normalised could help ! (or normalised for gnu tools)
Thank you again for your help,
