aLFS-6.1 glibc failing 'make check' in step-6.. in Africa someplace


Quite odd... running aLFS-6.1 from the current LiveCD on a somewhat-old laptop is throwing make check errors during the compile of glibc (2.3.4), such as "posix/wordexp" test, an "nptl" CPU-mask test, and an error in "sscanf." All kinds of things. It's an Intel Pentium-4, and I am basically (at this point anyway) doing nothing but letting aLFS do its thing. It repeats these three failures over and over and never goes beyond the make check on its own.

All of Chapter-5 ran flawlessly.

Ooh, even wierder... if you skip the check and just go for the install it complains about one of the languages... and (of all things) /dev/null. {Nothing to it, eh? ... sorry ...} /usr/share/zoneinfo/Africa/Algiers... (Algiers?!) ... /dev/null/ input line of unknown type... Has this machine just teleported itself to the far side of the planet?

Am I having, like, an MBF (major brain-fart) here? A senior-moment to beat all comers? This is a stock attempt to run with the latest LiveCD .. the very same one that ran so happily before. What on earth could be causing it to do this?

What locales are getting installed by alfs?

The book says that the tests need some of the locales to be installed, but that should only affect the tests...
