I've downloaded a tarballed version of 0.85 "MTR" -> http://www.bitwizard.nl/mtr/ and installed it.
I later saw that a 0.86 diff file exists. I downloaded this in order to patch it, but am confused how to use the patch command. The first thing that bothers me is that I need to know the originalfile name, right? But there is no file in the folder called mtr.0.85 or something along those lines.
How would I know what the originalfile is? Any pointers greatly appreciated.
Edit: The diff-file has the following content, but I've tried those commands all to no avail.

Running "patch mtr mtr-0.86.diff" renders the following output: HUNK #1 FAILED AT 16.. until all 9 hunks fails.
