#241 Binutls patches don't apply correctly

binutils (12)

As instructed, I downloaded binutils 2.21.1, using the wget command,
and the patches indicated.

Patch 1 (...sf3143071.patch) applied correctly
Patch 2 (...sf3386145.patch) did NOT apply correctly. It tries to modify msp430uni.sh, which
does not exist anymore (I think it's called msp430all.sh, seehttp://mspgcc.git.sourceforge.net/git/gitweb.cgi?p=mspgcc/binutils;a=commit;h=3fd56bb7addcead0e84e84fe890b93d60bc4fa5f)

So I gather there are two versions of binutils around?

This is the patch output:

patch -p1<../msp430-binutils-2.21.1-20110716-sf3379341.patch
can't find file to patch at input line 14
Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?

    Those are patches on top of the LTS-20110716 release. Did you first apply the base release patch msp430-binutils-2.21.1-20110716.patch?

    Thanks Peter, That solved it.

    I read and re-read the instructions, but must have been suffered from temporary blindness!

    No problem; it does get a bit complicated sometimes.
