Patches for FPMPI

To use these patch files, download the file, place it in your PETSc directory, and use the gnu patch utility as:
patch -Np1 < patchfile 
It is important to download the patch, not cut and paste it from the display of your web browser. The reason for this is that some patches may contain tabs, and most browsers will not preserve the tabs when they display the file; copying and pasting that text will cause the patch to fail because the tabs won't be found. If you have trouble with patch, you can look at the patchfile itself; it is just the output of the Unix diff program applied to the old and new versions of the file or files.

The patch command on solaris and alpha machines uses a different format for patch. Please download and install gnu patch utility.
