Checking for patch... no
On compiling a program, i get error
checking for patch... no configure: error: You need patch utility to prepare sources.
This is due to program "patch" not installed on the server.
The server was Fedora 7, so i searched "patch" at
Find the rpm for patch, downloaded and installed it.
wget ftp://ftp.univie.ac.at/systems/linux/fedora/releases/7/Everything/i386/os/Fedora/patch-2.5.4-29.2.2.i386.rpm rpm -ivh patch-2.5.4-29.2.2.i386.rpm
