I would like to apply my own patches and build pkgsrc softwares, but it
creates error message. I checked
"" already, but it stil
fails, i probably make a mistake.


1- Exract original software.

2- Copy original_file.c to original_file.c.orig

3- Edit original_file.c

4- Run "pkgdiff original_file.c.orig original_file.c"

5- Place patch into "pkgsrc/category/software/patches/"

6- Run "make makedistinfo" in "pkgsrc/category/software/"

Once i try to "make install" it says, patch is inappropriate format.

Thanks in advance.
