Help.. How to apply patch to BitBake recipe file?

I am using the MokoMakefile. I've tried to get the "make update" to use the
patch from bug #599 many different ways and can't seem to get it to work.
If I manually edit the target file, it will build the openmoko-devel-image,
but any time I "make update" it reverts to the problematic code.
I downloaded the patch file to "pulseaudio-bitbake-fix.patch" and placed
that in /home/moko/patches/openmoko-HEAD. Then I created a series file
The first four lines of the pulseaudio patch are:
--- oe/packages/pulseaudio/pulseaudio_0.9.6.bb (revision 2207)
+++ oe/packages/pulseaudio/pulseaudio_0.9.6.bb (working copy)
This is referring to the file at
which is also the file at
since /home/moko/oe is a link to the deeper tree.
The beginning of silence-retrieved-revisions.patch contains:
trunk/oe/classes/base.bbclass | 2 +-
1 file changed, 1 insertion(+), 1 deletion(-)
When I try to run "make update" however, it states it cannot find the file
to be patched.
I've tried appending " -p0" to the line in the series file to no effect.
I also tried "quilt import <patch file>" and it put the patch file and a
series file in /home/moko/patches but it did not get applied during "make
I also tried:
$ quilt new new-patch-name.patch
$ quilt edit <filename>
$ quilt refresh
This created a patch file in the /home/moko/patches directory, but with the
path name moko/oe/... and moko.org/oe/... Again, no effect on the execution
of "make update".
