fat32 patch, cd with vfat & fat32

Question 1:
Has anyone been able to utilize the fat32 patch?  I've been trying to
apply it to kernel version 2.0.27 (from /usr/src and from
/usr/src/linux) and it keeps prompting me for a filename to patch.
I'm typing "patch -p0 < patch_name".  It just says something about
looking like a unified diff and prompts "filename to patch:".

Question 2:
A little more simplistic.  With either fat32 or vfat, spaces are
perfectly acceptible within directory names.  How would I, say change
directories to "/dosc/Program Files/"?  I know I could cd
/dosc/progra~1/, but that's not very convenient.

yes i use it and it works great .... the problem your having is your
not patching properly ..... The fat32 patch is gzipped so you need a
command like the following :-

gunzip -c fat32_patch-0_1_0.gz | patch -p0

The archived file needs to be in usr/src and it will then patch
properly ... To use it just select vfat in the kernel build options
and use as before ........

Dont worry as linux handles this well aswell ..... Best to type
/dosc/Pr and hit the tab key to fill in the blank and low and behold
your long file names will pop up :-))) You can type it manually but
who wants to do that >? after all it is'nt 95 were using :-)

Actually, I had gunzipped it first, but I just tried it this way with
a fresh download and I got the same error message.  However, I'm using
a different version of the patch (0.2.0) that I got from
http://bmrc.berkeley.edu/people/chaffee/fat32.html

I know that after I patched my 2.0.25 kernel to recognize fat32,
doing ls on a directory with long file names would convert embedded
spaces in something like "Program Files" into "Program/ Files".

On a hunch, I tried:

         cd Program/Files

instead of:

        cd "Program Files"

and it worked fine.  So...  There are two ways to CD to FAT32 (and
prolly VFAT) directories that contain embedded spaces.  :)

Surely you mean Program\ Files, with a backslash, yes?

And where might I obtain the patch?

1. VFAT,FAT32 patch for FreeBSD 2.2.X

Hi,

I ported msdosfs sources in FreeBSD-current to
FreeBSD 2.2.5 that seem to be able to
read and write VFAT/FAT32 and to be used on
FreeBSD 2.2.X.
I uploaded the sources to http://members.aol.com/hyama99/index.html.
Please try them at your own risks,
if you cannot wait for FreeBSD 3.0 release.

Sincerely,
Hideki Yamamoto
