I've seen you guys have made several fixes(.patch) for ROS, some that would be very useful for me, however, I can't find anything that tells me how to "install" them in my ROS Fuerte, actually I'm pretty confused even about where to put the fixes. So, how do I do it?

Hi,

patches are nothing you can simply install. Those .patch files are normally diffs of the source code (means it contains the changes to the source code that have been made to fix a bug).

So in general (I think this also applies for ROS) you need to download the ROS source code first (svn checkout) and then apply a .patch to the source code. You can read up on how to create and apply patches here.

Cheers Felix
