    What is a Patch?
    What is Quilt?

    Does one need Quilt installed to apply a patch?

    Can quilt be installed from Putty?

    Thanks

    A patch is as it sounds patch = modification to existing file

    Quilt is a portal to the patches, Yes quilt is needed to install patches.

    Yes quilt can be installed using putty.

    Can I just paste this script from Putty and install Quilt?

    Setup Procedure (Scripted)

    The process of setting up quilt has been scripted. The script performs the following actions:
    Installs (or upgrades) git and any dependencies
    Installs (or upgrades) quilt (actually quilt-lite, a version of quilt that does not depend on perl) and any dependencies
    Configures quilt to store patches in /opt/src/patches
    Creates (or updates) a local clone of the webos-internals modifications repository
    Each step is only performed if necessary. Please note that ipkg-opt needs to be installed. The instructions are found here.
    To get run the script, log into your Pre, gain root privileges and run the following commands:
    cd /tmp
    wget http://gitorious.org/webos-internals...t-bootstrap.sh
    sh quilt-bootstrap.sh

    Quilt is a command line program that you can use to apply patches. Patches are files that you can use with quilt to change different files in the file system. If you need any help with quilt or any other problems, questions, or anything else you can PM me and I'll be glad to help you out.
