Looking for arris69!

Post by dpruente » Wed Feb 06, 2013 5:40 am

I'm following your RFS patch, attempting to compile kernel version 2.6.17.14. I'm certain that I've completed all the instructions flawlessly. However, Every time I attempt to apply the patch, I get the following error

Code: Select all

patch: **** malformed patch at line 11499: 
That occurs when applying the first patch. The second fails as a result. I'm not a programmer, and thus, have no idea what to look for or change on line 11499. Furthermore, Line 11499 in the pastebin file is empty, save for the '+' at the beginning of each line. If you get a chance, I'd really appreciate the help. Thank you very much.

Absolutely. This is the patch that errors out at the 2nd to last line, which appears to be a spacer. I just don't have the skills to figure it out.

you marked the text or used the pastebin "copy to clipboard" function?

No, I used the download link at the top. i just manually checked the text on pastebin to the file that's on my machine now. That line is exactly the same

I ran it again on a fresh copy of the source, but in verbose mode, and this is what I get:

Hmm...  The next patch looks like a unified diff to me...
(Patch is indented 4 spaces.)
The text leading up to this was:

I modified the patch, it took me a while to find the right spot to modify, but I'm certain I did it correctly. Unfortunately, it yielded the exact same result

wget "http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=eLzHfiX4" -O ../rfs.patch
echo -e "\r\n" >> ../rfs.patch
if this also not working, then create the files manually from the diff...
