Applying patch using --verbose I get:

  Hunk#1 succeeded
  Changing attruvutes for <filename>: Operation not supported

when compiled in, patch tries to preserve file attributes, for example:

$ echo a > f
$ setfattr -n user.name -v value f
Trying your example, got "Operation not supported" here, too.

$ cat > ab.diff
--- f
+++ f
@@ -1 +1 @@
$ patch f < ab.diff
Used strace, resulting strace output attached.

$ getfattr -d f
# file: f

I assume you get the error message with and without --verbose.

What does strace show in your case?
Thank you for reminding me of strace, I had forgotten it.
Only thing I noticed in the strace output was /etc/xattr.conf not found.
Slackware attr package doesn't have an xattr.conf either.

What would you suggest?
