Copy the patch onto source dir then the book has all that you need to do, wha chapter are you on

The source or the built binary? If you mean the source then the above will work... you can't however patch a built binary with a source code patch, these patches are meant to patch uncompiled source only.

The Patches are listed in Chapter 3 Find the patch you need copy it into /mnt/lfs/soucres

Untar the package you are working on cd /mnt/lfs/sources/Package-name.


patch -Np1 -i ../Package
The "../" means it will lookin the previous dir "Sources" for the patch.
