git apply name_of_file.patch does not work


You are given a patch file to apply to your git repository but using git apply does not work. No errors reported but no changes applied neither.


Try to use the patch command command possibly with the -p1 parameter like:

patch -p1 < path_to_the_patch_file.patch

NOTE: Make sure that you are in the right folder relative to the file path in the patch file
