The most likely cause is you not running "patch" from the right directory and/or not passing the right "-p..." option. Your actions as described in your first posting to the list were obviously wrong, and you've never since provided the specific shell commands (all of them, starting with extracting the tarball) that you try to use now. From the command line that you did post, it is not clear what directory you're running "patch" from. > How would I set the > variable $JOHN so the sytem knows the path?

No, that's completely irrelevant. -- Alexander Peslyak <solar at openwall.com> GPG key ID: 5B341F15 fp: B3FB 63F4 D7A3 BCCC 6F6E FC55 A2FC 027C 5B34 1F15 http://www.openwall.com - bringing security into open computing environments Was I helpful?
