Morning everyone. Quick question on applying the first patch for OpenBSD 3.2...

I installed 3.2 last night. Got my firewall up and running. I started applying the first patch the usual way, but a odd thing happend (at least, it was weird to me since I had never seen this before..)

When I CD to /usr/src and ran patch -p0 < /tmp/001_kadmin.patch (i think thats it...from memory)

It runs through its normal routine and then it comes to a prompt asking me:

"File to patch:"

This is where im confused...im not sure what i need to enter here. Anyone have this happen to them? If so, what am I supposed to enter here? Also, if you can provide a brief explanation so I can resolve this on my own in the future, i'd be greatful.

Thanks guys..

That happens when the patch can't find the file to patch. Check to make sure you have all of your source. Seems like you might be missing some stuff.
