bonnie++-1.97.3/   bonnie++-

I'm confused as the why its creating an empty directory of and trying to apply patches in there while the archive extracts to 1.97.3. Why are 2 directories being created?

dunno how to delete the thread but figured it out

Not sure what Makefile you're referring to as the newest and to my knowledge broken version of bonnie++ is 1.79. You might also want to consider fio instead which is also in the repo.

I dont really know how to use git but 1.97.3 works just fine.
