[Koha] Help Please! Problem during upgrade to

First off, I would encourage you to subscribe to koha-devel if you are
using Master. I sent out a warning about this yesterday.

As for applying the patch, the following commands should do it:
sudo apt-get install wget
cd ~/kohaclone
wget -O bug_6629_followup.patch
git am -3iu bug_6629_followup.patch
[hit 'y' when asked]

Let me take this moment to reinforce Chris's note about running from
Master: it can be dangerous! If you aren't comfortable working with git, I
would encourage you not to run from Master. Although it is in theory
possible for something like this to happen on a stable branch (e.g.,
3.6.x), it's much less likely to happen. If, for whatever reason, you
*have* to use the Master branch, test the exact version you want to use on
a staging server before applying it to a production server.

And, while I'm on my "teachable moment" soapbox, here's a list of
recommended reading for learning about git. I'd encourage you (and anyone
else who is uncertain) to read at least three of the items on it if you
intend to remain on Master:


      The git tutorial - *
      http://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/docs/gittutorial.html* - a
      good starting place

      Git For Designers - *
      http://hoth.entp.com/output/git_for_designers.html* - an introduction
      to the concepts behind git

      Git in a Nutshell -
*http://jonas.iki.fi/git_guides/HTML/git_guide/*- a clearly written
introduction to the use of git

      Git man pages - *http://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/docs/* -
      the official git documentation, intended for technically-oriented users

      Git Reference - *http://gitref.org/* - crash course in using git

      Pro Git - *http://progit.org/book/* - an entire book on using git

      Git From the Bottom Up - *
      http://ftp.newartisans.com/pub/git.from.bottom.up.pdf* - a
      clearly-written article on the theory behind git

      Koha’s git documentation - *
      http://wiki.koha-community.org/wiki/Version_Control_Using_Git* -
      instructions on using git in the context of Koha development

      GitHub documentation - *http://help.github.com/* - since some of the
      ANS’s modifications are stored in a GitHub repository, it is important to
      know how to use GitHub
