    Default Griffith - media collection manager on OpenSuse 12.1

    Hello community,

    I am trying to install this package Griffith on OpenSuse 12.1 64bit.

    I get an error, because the program needs sqlalchemy =<0.6.7, while I have installed 0.7.2. I found a patch on this site berlios mailing list that should make it work with higher versions of sqlalchemy, but I don't know what to do with it.

    Any ideas?

    Ok, reading a bit further I guess I have to use the GNU patch utility (never done that before). However, I don't know on what file to apply the patch.

    I seem to get old now. The patch includes changes to several files
    griffith-0.12.1/lib/add.py
    griffith-0.12.1/lib/preferences.py
    griffith-0.12.1/lib/sql.py

    you know how to apply a patch?

    Ok, I found the three files you listed...

    Should I try
    Code:
    patch - i griffith-0.12.1-sqlalchemy-0.7.patch -o ./griffith-0.12.1/lib/add.py
    etc. for each file?

    No, no, no.
    Code:
    patch -p0 <griffith-0.12.1-sqlalchemy-0.7.patch
    I hope I did not understand wrong where in your file hirarchy you placed
    the patch file, the patch itself contains the meta information which of
    the files are to be changed.

    First of all, thank you for your directions so far.
    I am not at the 12.1 system right now. However, I have two more questions
    I hope I did not understand wrong where in your file hirarchy you placed
    the patch file, the patch itself contains the meta information which of
    the files are to be changed.
    The patch is right now one level higher than the directory where I extracted the source to. Are the paths in the patch relative or absolute?
    As I understood it I will run the patch on the extracted tar.gz file and then rerun sudo make. Does this seem plausible to you?

    PS: I run patch --help to see what -p0 means, but don't really get it. As far as I understand it has nothing to do with the path of the files, true?

    Then it should work as described, but you should rerun "make" after that
    "sudo make install".
    Never run "sudo make" alone nly the "make install" step, a simple make
    is never meant to be invoked with root rights.
