Hi all,

Newbie here with question.

I need to install the following patch:
http://ftp.samba.org/pub/samba/patch...012-0870.patch

How can I install this patch? Using the patch command?
Patch file references paths which don't exist on my system - is that an issue? Also the file looks like an email - is this a typical format for a patch? This is the first time I have had to apply a patch.

I Googled, but quickly became overwhelmed with search results and varied opinions from other forums.

Need a quick and dirty answer on how I can install this patch (I promise I will read the patch man page again once I can successfully complete patching).

Thanks in advance.

M
