    Default How to apply a KDE patch?


    openSUSE 11.1, KDE 3.5.10 release 21.9.

    When I try to copy files using fish:// in Konqueror over SSH, my
    transfer almost always stalls on a random file if there are a
    significant number of files being copied. This appears to be a bug in
    KDE's kioslaves:

    'Bug 147948 – copying via fish stalls'
    (http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=147948)

    and in that bug report a user posted a patch:

    'View of /branches/KDE/3.5/kdebase/kioslave/fish/fish.cpp'
    (http://tinyurl.com/axggl9)

    but I don't know how to apply it. How do I apply this patch?

    Use patch 'Howto apply a patch file to my Linux / UNIX source code'
    (http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/appy-pa...patch-command/).

    Cheers

    Hrm ... the patch from that bug report doesn't appear to be a diff
    patch, but instead the full source code for a fish kioslave. The
    filename is fish.cpp, and on my system I found three possible candidates
    for a matching existing binary:

    /opt/kde3/lib/kde3/kio_fish.la
    /opt/kde3/lib/kde3/kio_fish.so
    /usr/lib/vhook/fish.so

    So problem 1 is that I don't know exactly how to compile the source for
    fish.cpp that I downloaded from the bug report (do I need specific
    flags? what is my output file name? etc.) and problem 2 is that I don't
    know where the compiled binary would live on my system.

    I asked here first because I'm not overly familiar with where openSUSE
    puts all its files, but perhaps this would be a better question on a
    KDE-specific forum? I don't know where to go from here.
