Native Build Patch Confusion
I have been (I hope temporarily) stumped in the long process of readying my system for building the native, non-X11 version of Ardour per the instructions on
(which is just as arduous a task as the page warns) and have gotten as far as the step which instructs me to "Fetch the GTK patch. Save it to disk, and then apply it using patch."
Problem is, the link only leads to a page with the text of the patch written out, and I cannot figure out how to save this in a format appropriate to be applied using the "patch p0 <" command. As the page explains, this is not yet in SVN so I cannot use a checkout, and since I obviously don't have the final, patched version I can't make a .diff file.
How do I go about getting and using this patch? This is important, as I will have to do this twice more (for libart and libgnomecanvas) before I am finished. I am running Mac OSX 10.6.8 "Snow Leopard" on a new Macbook Pro.
