I disagree, see the previous discussion. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 16:18, 17 January 2020 (UTC)

Please clarify the statement about adding an entry to the source array of the PKGBUILD for the patch file.

Could anyone please clarify this statement?

"Add an entry to the source array of the PKGBUILD for the patch file, separated from the original source url by a space."

In particular: what is, and where is the source array in the PKGBUILD?

I also suspect there may be an alternative way of accomplishing the same by renaming the patch to patchname.patch, but I'm not sure.

If you have a patch you need to apply and have the URL for it, you can add it to the source array and it will download automatically. Highfrequencyhertz (talk) 21:54, 21 September 2021 (UTC)
