Bash Test Suite Result Questions
I'm running the test for Bash as stated in LFS 6.9; ch_6.29 after changing the ownership of the bash source folder to 'nobody' and the results come back as "permission denied". The Instructions say to do:
What am I missing?
These commands are issued directly after issuing make.
My /etc/group is setup according to the earlier instructions in ch 6
My system is vmware, i686 (family 6), 1G Ram, >8G HDD .. though this shouldn't be relevant, i think.. My host is LFS liveCD (last one), though by now I'm already chrooted.
Thanks in advance for your suggestion!
Did you check the following:
- Are you inside the chrooted environment (6.4. Entering the Chroot Environment)
- Are you root user?
- Have you tried removing the /sources/bash-4.2 directory and redo this chapter?
If all that didn't come up with something, can you post the output of the following command (after running the chown -Rv nobody . command):
Thank you, this issue is solved!
It is LFS version 6.8, sorry..
I woke up today & started going through your steps of repeating the chapter. After I'd removed the folder, and again un-tared the archive to repeat the chapter, the test suite worked, and the install continued through. Thank you.
I'm not sure where I went wrong exactly.. I was muddled with sleep.. most likely a repeating typo.
I wasn't clear on the description of symptoms though, and will attempt to clarify for anyone else that may encounter this:
The "permission denied" occurred *during* the tests for each individual test output, and during make install for all access entries (though did not happen for root by just doing make tests).
The chown command had executed as expected, changing the ownership (recursively) of all files in .(that directory) of the bash source directory, as nobody:root (or nobody:nogroup where the original permission was 286:80 instead of root:root).
Thanks again, Druuna!
Glad to see you got it fixed!
BTW: You're welcome :)
