I unpacked the sourcecode from glibc-2.3.2.tar.bz2 to 
Now I am trying to aplly the patch glibc-2.3.2-sscanf-1.patch but if I 
execute the command ( patch -Np1 -i 
$LFS/sources/glibc-2.3.2-sscanf-1.patch) I get the following message:

can't find file to patch at input line 10
Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?
