I am in chapter 6, building the glibc library. I completed Chapter 5 (The temporary System) without any problems (that I know of
- that is, if I missed it on accident). Everything went as planned, and I proceeded into Chapter 6. I Chrooted
into the enviroment and set everything up as the book said. Then I followed the steps exactly on making the glibc library. I type "make"- no problems. When I did the "make check", however, this appeared at the very end:
make: *** [/glibc-build/libio/tst-fopenloc.check] Error 127
make: Leaving directory `/glibc-build/libio'
make: *** [libio/tests] Error 2
make: Leaving directory `glibc-2.3.4'
make: *** [check] Error 2
Now, the book says some problems are unavoidable but unfortunately it does not give you any insight on what to do about them (even the few examples it listed).
I would like some reassurance: can I proceed to build my LFS system with this problem? Or is there a work-around?
My Host System is Mandrake Linux Powerpack 10.1
