### Forwarded to openembedded-devel ###
We are using Fedora14. That is using patch 2.6.1-8.
The -8 release includes the following patches to patch.
I think one of those fixes a security issue in patch where ".." in
path names were allowed. With this version of patch (which I assume
will become standard ?) the OpenEmbedded fails.
Any ideas on a way to get around this (ideally without using a
different patch version :) )
