unpatching a patch
This has been bugging me for a couple days and I can't remember nor find the answer. I'm trying to reverse an old patch so I can apply a newer one. I THOUGHT patch -R bootsplash-3.1.4-2.6.10.diff would do the trick but it doesn't, it just hangs like its waiting for a new command. And patch -R < bootsplash-3.1.4-2.6.10.diff says it can't find files. So yeah I've been searching forums and the web and I can't seem to find anything to tell me how to unpatch a patch, so I implore you oh wise users of the Linux, cure my idiocy.
Are you in the proper directory? Have you tried specifying the same -p option that you used with the patch?
That should work. :?
patch -p1 < blah.diff
patch -R -p1 < blah.diff
Hehe thanks man, forgot about that.
ps I'm back in the IRC, talk to you soon!
