I generated a patchfile of 2 directories using this command:
diff -ur source-20110125 source > mailpatch3.patch
Now I would like to apply the patch, doing this:
patch -p1 < mailpatch3.patch
But it then asks me for the file to patch. Why?
Something that looks strange to me in the patch file: there are a lot of "common subdirectories" lines. Like this:
Common subdirectories: source-20110125/ac_depository and source/ac_depository Common subdirectories: source-20110125/ac_depository_jar and source/ac_depository_jar Common subdirectories: source-20110125/_backoffice and source/_backoffice Common subdirectories: source-20110125/_csvexport and source/_csvexport Common subdirectories: source-20110125/_foundation and source/_foundation Common subdirectories: source-20110125/_impex and source/_impex
And I don't really know why they're there.
The rest of the patch looks normal.
