Re: make error - "ATTENTION: Unknown system type: FreeBSD 9.0-RELEASE"
- Wow...thank you Wietse!
I *think* I know how to apply this, but can someone confirm this for me -
I think I can just copy and paste your code into a file, name it, and then:
patch –p0 < /path/to/patch/patch_name.patch
Right so far?
What file am I applying the patch to? The "makedefs" file, right?
I have to execute the patch command from within the same directory
that the makedefs file is also in, right?
With the help of a co-worker, I used the -l parameter of patch to get
it to ignore whitespace. Prior to that, I kept getting hunk failures.
The command I used is:
patch –Cl –p0 < patch_name.patch
first to "Check" for errors and then just
patch –l –p0 < patch_name.patch.
Thank you Wietse.
