Patch Question

Ok,

I'm sure this one is easy ;o

I'm getting this error when attempting to install
a patch:
/patch/path/stuff/.../checkinstall: cannot open

The patch claims to already be installed yet it
isn't in the list and is required by other patches
that I would like to install.

I'm sure I'm just a fool but what should I do at this point?

Try to move the patch directory to /tmp and change the
permissions of the patch directory: chmod -R go+rw /tmp/patchdir.
Run patchadd again after that.

Yeah,

I'm just a moron.  I had a directory that was
drwxr-xr-- in the path.

For some reason I missed it yesterday.

/tmp would work as well (if it had the space).
