I am not sure what you wanted do to here, since you *already* have a
patch. But the resulting file is most certainly worthless as a patch.

Wrong syntax: you would have to either redirect your patch as stdin,
or run 'patch -i <your patch>'.

Yes. As Nils pointed out on another email, 'patch' is waiting for
input. See above.
But even doing redirection when running 'patch' will *NOT* solve your
problem: the gnome.org patch redefines some in-line code -- it will
*only* be used when you remake the whole of glib2.0 (I did not stop to
see where it is used, so for me it is _all_).
What you have to do is rebuild glib2.0. And... now we have some issues:
* what version of Ubuntu are you using? Specifically what version of
* this patch seems to only change some casts to avoid gcc warnings
when building glib (unless you are building your programme with
'-Werror'). Are you sure this is what you need?
But, let's consider this is what you need. You should rebuild the
Ubuntu glib2.0 packages for your version of Ubuntu -- the current, or
better, the most up-to-date version of them.
So you will need (at least):
sudo apt-get install build-essentials ubuntu-dev-tools
then you need to grab *all* build dependencies for glib2.0:
sudo apt-get build-dep glib2.0
Now cd into the just-created glib2.0, and try to *fake*-apply the
patch --dry-run --verbose -p0 < ~/patch
I am assuming the GIT patch you downloaded is under your home
directory, and it is named 'patch'.
If everything is fine -- to say, no 'patch' errors:
* copy your patch to the ./debian/patches, and GIVE IT A MORE CORRECT
NAME. 'patch' really does not do the trick. NOTE: since glib2.0 uses
'quilt', you will have to take some care. Usually making it the last
patch in the series is OK. YMMV.
* edit ./debian/patches/series, and add in the appropriate position
the patch file name
* edit ./debian/changelog and add an entry AT THE TOP for your patch.
Increase the mod level, and make sure to end the version string as
'~whatever'. This will allow for future official updates to replace
glib2.0, and will not break any possible dependencies from other
packages. For example, on my Maverick system, glib2.0 is versioned
'2.25.15-0ubuntu2', so I would set the version to
* now you can build the new glib2.0 packages: 'debuild -b' will do the
If everything has gone OK, you will have a series of new packages on
the parent directory, and all you will need to do is update *those you
already have installed*.
Yes, it is not as simple as one could wish. But you are changing a
critical Gnome package... simply building it from source (like
'./configure && make && sudo make install') may or may not work --
probably will not work, BTW.
You really should read https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PackagingGuide/Complete
on the applicable parts.
