then you can supply its path with the '--with-patch=' option.

make install

is OK.

The problem is that OpenSUSE 11.3.

please close it.

  • Resolution invalid deleted
  • Status changed from closed to reopened

Wrong resolution. You've downloaded patch 2.6, while openSUSE uses patch, which has a modified --version syntax:

# patch --version
GNU patch

And quilt's does this:

set -- `$PATCH --version 2> /dev/null`

which breaks, because $1 reads "GNU", $2 now reads "patch" and $3 is the version number.

Attached patch fixes quilt's configure script for future patch versions.

applied in r22397. this patch is best to be directed upstream. thank you.

comment:5 Changed 8 years ago by Pieter "Fate" Hollants <pieter@…>

Actually I just discovered someone else sent a patch to the upstream mailing list:

You might want to pick up that patch instead, no idea when it will eventually get merged into a new quilt release.
