In the meantime, the following will patch 142 to 161: $ ftp ftp.afterstep.org > cd devel/snapshots > get AfterStep-1.7.142.tar.gz > cd ../patches > mget 1.7.142-* > quit $ tar xzf AfterStep-1.7.142.tar.gz $ cd AfterStep-1.7.142 $ gzip -dc ../1.7.142-*.patch.gz | patch -p1 Some systems do not have GNU tar, and may need to use: gzip -dc AfterStep-1.7.142.tar.gz | tar xf - ... in place of the tar command above.
