Installing Security Advisories

Dear all,

One probably very simple question:
I was trying to install actual FreeBSD patches as mentioned in Security Advisories.

I follow the instructions and always come to the same point:

1. I fetch the patch.
2. I execute $cd /usr/src
3. I execute $patch < /path/to/patch

Then the patch programm ask me which file to apply the patch at. The Security Advisory tells nothing about this.

So how can I find out, which file to tell 'patch' to patch?

Any help is kindly appreciated.

Best regards, Tino Engel
