Comment 278 for bug 351186

Apologies in advance if this is a dumb question or the wrong place to ask, but:

As I've (wrongly) patched and installed xorg, what steps would I need to take to rectify? I assume that the patching didn't actually work and I ended up installing a vanilla version. Would I first need to remove the currently installed version and then repeat the steps, or am I safe to simply follow the instructions from the beginning again (will my unpatched version be replaced, without removing first?)

Thanks in advance,
