I downloaded the latest diff file for Magento but cannot figure out how to get it to run a diff patch on Windows. I tried with TortoiseMerge, but it always gives me the error “is not a working copy” for every file it tries to do the merge on.
Meld on ubuntu linux - it is awesome. Also, in linux the newlines are not mangled into DOS format. Do yourself a favour, install ubuntu and make your PC dual boot. If you have a second machine use that for Photoshop - everything else is easier on linux once you get started. Do not fear the penguins, the dual boot will not mangle your windows, honest…
Have tried installing a dual boot Linux three times and each time it has ruined each PC I installed it on (one was actually an Intel based Mac). Suffice to say, I am a bit jaded. Until I can dedicate a computer to it I don’t plan to use Linux except as setup by my web host.
I still need to operate a local copy of the server in the meantime for development purposes.
Any ideas on what to us for the diff file merging? WinMerge is no good for this either.
