Malformed patch at line XX - Patching C code Problem

Post by Stacey Sha » Thu, 29 May 2003 03:43:09

Hey guys, I have a problem.

I'm having a problem adapting a qmail patch.  I have a piece of code
(qmail-smtpd.c) that is patched (offsets), not original.  The patch
I'm trying to apply was written for the raw source *.c file.  I've

line to match the new location in the code that the patch is to be
applied.  The change I made was:

But I get the following error:

I know the location in the code that I need to add the patch to, but I
don't know what the error message means or what to do about it.

Does anyone have the answer, a tip or a URL for me to check out?  Any
help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
