P4DTI issue job000324

TitleBugzilla patch doesn't work well on Solaris 8
Assigned userNick Barnes
DescriptionA user reported problems with the Bugzilla 2.10 patch on Solaris 8. The patch applies correctly (if 'patch' is invoked twice) but generates error messages. Apparently the version of 'patch' which comes with Solaris 8 is not capable of applying a regular unified diff patch to more than one file at once, at least not invoked in the usual way.
AnalysisWe don't test on Solaris (job000320). We now document a dependency on GNU patch in the AG.
