    Need help patching a file

    I'm trying to install wine from source code, because I have to patch a file in to get a game to work.. sooo I got the source installed, and I have the patch file, but when I use the syntax my walkthrough gives me, it doesn't work. I checked out the help for patch, but can't make heads or tails out of it.

    I have wine installed, I switch to that dir, and then do this:

    patch -p0 nameofpatch.patch

    The terminal accepts that, but then just hangs, does anybody know the correct way to install a patch? I'd love to get this game running so I don't have to go into Windows to play it. (the game is Final Fantasy Online.)

    not a user of wine myself but...are you the owner of the wine directory?
    ls -al will show you info on the files in the present working directory, including owner and group. Also a link to the tutorial you are following might help someone to see just what you are trying to do.

    Hey, thanks for the response, I think I got it figured out, I just had to do patch -p1 -i filename.patch

    It seemed to install fine, hopefully this helps someone else if they run across a similar situation.
