    Downloaded JPHS but cant get patch <Makefile.patch to wor


    The program is written in C (if that will help to know). It is a steganography program to encryp messages into jpegs and also a prog to decipher such encryptions. Avery interesting and powerful tool I saw demo'd in one of my CIT classes today. But my back is to a wall with this one... I followed the very simple readme.file to a "T", but have no idea how to fix this. Please help...there are alot of us dying to run this prog under Linux!!!!!!

    The command I am using (per README file) is:

    patch <Makefile.patch

    This is a file in the decompressed .tgzball that the prog comes in

    This is the error output that I am getting:



    patching file ./Makefile.patch
    Hunk #1 FAILED at 74.
    Hunk #2 FAILED at 114.
    Hunk #3 FAILED at 141.
    Hunk #4 FAILED at 161.
    Hunk #5 FAILED at 185.
    Hunk #6 FAILED at 267.
    6 out of 6 hunks FAILED -- saving rejects to file ./Makefile.patch

    what can i do to fix this or get around it?

    Perhaps there is a patch in between this one and the source. If you have patch1, patch2 and patch3, you can't just patch patch3, you have to apply them all in order.

    That's the only time I've ever seen a patch error, but it's not like I'm patching things 100 times a day, so I could be wrong.

    Good luck,

    hmmm....I don't think thats it.

    It's only the second release as far as I know. I searched for more patches but none are to be found. Do I scrap it and run? I could download it for windows, but just the thought of having to use a windows box makes me cringe...

    Have you tried to install the program w/out applying the patch?
