Question help? gettext fails test under chroot env


If I am logged in under chroot in chap 6.3.0 I get this garbage. However,
If I am logged in under my host and run the make check it passes.


Why?
what is going on here?
Am I missing a dependancy to run this test thats not in my tools dir?

I ctrl c to get out of the test so it's not all here.

maybe a tar problem with the temporary system tar? it passed when you ran it under your host so i'd say the gettext build is ok.

If the test fails in chroot but passes in the host environment it means you've compiled it linked to libraries on your host system. It won't work when you reboot into LFS.
It does look as though it's tar that has the problem and not gettext.
Start again and follow the book. Isolate your build environment from your host system.
