Good morning all:

I am using book version 2.4 and trying to apply the glibc-2.1.3 patch and get
the following error:

[root at localhost glibc-2.1.3]# gunzip glibc-2.1.3.patch.gz

gunzip: glibc-2.1.3.patch.gz: not in gzip format
[root at localhost glibc-2.1.3]#



I could not get any unpacking done and decided to try the following command and
getting:


[root at localhost glibc-2.1.3]# patch -Np1 -i ../glibc-2.1.3.patch
patch: **** Can't open patch file ../glibc-2.1.3.patch : No such file or directory
[root at localhost glibc-2.1.3]# gunzip glibc-2.1.3.patch.gz

gunzip: glibc-2.1.3.patch.gz: not in gzip format
[root at localhost glibc-2.1.3]#


I have searched the archives and could not find anything to help me with my
problem.  I tried to re-download the patch but it opened when I typed in the
url.  Could this package be corrupted?

Please help!!!!!

Linuxly yours
Foyah
