There's a program to apply patches, typically called "patch"
Try "man patch".
If your system doesn't have, and can't get patch, just read the patches and edit the appropriate files by hand.  It's not particularly difficult.

Incidentally, I want to point out that there's no good reason to cc rsync-admin at lists.samba.org on a regular post.  I've been seeing a lot of that lately.

Also, questions like this aren't even rsync questions.  I'm sure there's something like comp.os.unix.introduction, or something similar, on usenet.

Hi List,
I was going through the rsync archives to find any
patches to deal with hanging issues, seems to be there
are patches but there are no instructions on how to
apply these patches. For instance the following email
points to the links where we can download patches

If you avoid using -v, that can help rsync not to
hang.  However, a
better fix is to apply this patch:


This fixes a very common hang problem, and makes -v
safe to use again.

Since you are also transferring large quantities of
files, I would be
very interested in knowing if rsync still hangs after
applying that
patch.  If it does, try applying this patch:


The second patch fixes a much rarer bug, and it would
be great to know
if someone had run into it in simple, real-world

How do I apply these patches, could someone help me on
Thanks in advance
