Sorry to bother everyone with this. I, finally, have gotten around to
applying all of the patches to our implementation of gap (3r4p3). [Hey,
isn't that what Christmas vacation is for?] I had no trouble with
gapfix25, which was a compilation of the first 25 bug fixes. Also,
bugfix26 went without any trouble.
However, when I tried to apply bugfix27, I got an error message. I
followed the instructions, and renamed the mail message to fix27lib.dif,
and executed the command:
patch -p0 < fix27lib.dif
Patch ran and reported the following:
Good. This file appears to be the 18.104.22.168 version. Patching file lib/ctcharac.g using Plan A... Hunk #1 failed at 3. 1 out of 1 hunks failed--saving rejects to lib/ctcharac.g.rej Hmm... The next patch looks like a unified diff to me... The text leading up to this was: -------------------------- | #H 'List' does no longer accept lists with holes. | #H | #H Revision 22.214.171.124 1995/06/28 07:03:38 sam
It then asked for the name of a file to patch, and I didn't have a clue
what I should do. I checked the version of patch:
> patch -v
Patch version 2.1
So that does not seem to be the problem. Does anybody have any advice?
