Default Re: Xen patch for 9625

i use the following commands :

patch NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9625-pkg1.run patch-nv-1.0-9625-xenrt.txt
that's wright? because return error :

patching file NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9625-pkg1.run
Hunk #1 FAILED at 42.
1 out of 1 hunk FAILED -- saving rejects to file NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9625-pkg1.run.rej
can't find file to patch at input line 34
Perhaps you should have used the -p or --strip option?
The text leading up to this was:
|diff -urN nv-1.0-9625/nv-linux.h nv-1.0-9625-xenrt/nv-linux.h
|--- nv-1.0-9625/nv-linux.h     2006-09-26 21:33:37.000000000 +0200
|+++ nv-1.0-9625-xenrt/nv-linux.h       2006-10-03 01:15:42.000000000 +0200

patch tells you what to do right there!
"Perhaps you should have used the -p or --strip option?"

make sure you are in the right directory with nv-linux.h, then run
$ patch -p1 patchfile

Edit: I'll explain what -p does. It cuts off leading directory paths from the patch.

If you don't use -p, it defaults to -p0, which means it looks for: nv-1.0-9625/nv-linux.h
But if you use -p1, it cuts off the first directory path, nv-1.0-9625/, and just looks for nv-linux.h
