For one, the patch's extension is not diff, and no matter what extension I gave the file it would give me some error involving the letter "l". The farthest I got was using p0 instead of p1, but it asked me what files I wanted patching, which I don't know.

The error is because the command option is -p1, not -pl. (I made exactly the same mistake the first time I tried to patch Wine.) If -p0 is what works with the patch you have, that's fine. If you want a more detailed explanation of what -p does, man patch will tell you.

The name of the file it wants is the name of the patch you downloaded. It doesn't really matter whether you give it the extension patch or diff.
