LFS 6.2 Ch. 6.14 - 2nd Coreutils test returns "/bin.bash: No such file or directory"


Hi all,

I'm working on LFS 6.2 on a Compaq Presario 1235. I am on chapter 6 section 14, the install of Coreutils-5.96 (http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/...coreutils.html). ./configure and make ran fine, and the first tests passed:

Code:
>echo "dummy1:x:1000:" >> /etc/group
>echo "dummy2:x:1001:dummy" >> /etc/group
>echo "dummy:x:1000:1000::/root:/bin/bash" >> /etc/passwd
>make NON_ROOT_USERNAME=dummy check-root
However, when I attempt to run the expensive tests I recieve an error:
Code:
>src/su dummy -c "make RUN_EXPENSIVE_TESTS=yes check"
src/su: /bin.bash: No such file or directory
Any ideas what the problem might be?

There may have been a typo when
Code:
echo "dummy:x:1000:1000::/root:/bin/bash" >> /etc/passwd
was entered (. is fairly close to / on my keyboard)

So check /etc/passwd. The dummy user's line should read "dummy:x:1000:1000::/root:/bin/bash"

I'm thinking yours reads "dummy:x:1000:1000::/root:/bin.bash"

But maybe it's something else...

oops!

Silly me, you were correct. I thought I had checked that issue by running
Code:
sed -i '/dummy/d' /etc/passwd /etc/group
Turns out that I had to manually edit /etc/passwd and /etc/group to remove the offending /bin.bash

Thanks!
