>From the patch man page:
-pnum or --strip=num
Strip the smallest prefix containing num leading slashes
from each file name found in the patch file. A sequence
of one or more adjacent slashes is counted as a single
slash. This controls how file names found in the patch
file are treated, in case you keep your files in a differ‐
ent directory than the person who sent out the patch. For
example, supposing the file name in the patch file was
setting -p0 gives the entire file name unmodified, -p1
without the leading slash, -p4 gives
and not specifying -p at all just gives you blurfl.c.
Whatever you end up with is looked for either in the cur‐
rent directory, or the directory specified by the -d
That should help.
