LFS 6, chapter 6.11; Glibc 'make check' error


Hi, I am going thru LFS 6.0 for the first time and everything was going smooth till chapter '6.11 glibc-2.3.4-20042701' I checked to make sure I typed the configure command exactly as it's shown in the book and make went off without a hitch. Make check however ended with:
Code:
GCONV_PATH=/sources/glibc-build/iconvdata LC_ALL=C   /sources/glibc-build/elf/ld-linux.so.2 
--library-path /sources/glibc-build:/sources/glibc-build/math:/sources/glibc-
build/elf:/sources/glibc-build/dlfcn:/sources/glibc-build/nss:/sources/glibc-
build/nis:/sources/glibc-build/rt:/sources/glibc-build/resolv:/sources/glibc-
build/crypt:/sources/glibc-build/nptl /sources/glibc-build//nptl/tst-rwlock14
 > /sources/glibc-build/nptl/tst-rwlock14.out
Didn't expect signal from child: got 'Segmentation fault'
make[2]: *** [/sources/glibc-build/nptl/tst-rwlock14.out] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory '/sources/glibc-2.3.4-20040701/nptl'
make[1]: *** [nptl/tests] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory '/sources/glibc-2.3.4-20040701'
make: *** [check] Error 2
Searching for an answer the only thing I could come up with was in the wiki(http://wiki.linuxfromscratch.org/ind...2.3.4-20040510) and all it says is
Quote:
If the kernel of your host system was compiled with gcc 2.x.x, several of the nptl
tests will fail, with "Didn't expect signal from child: got `Segmentation fault'":

mutex8, cond7, cond8, once3, once4, join5, cancel(1-7,10,13,15-18,20,21), clock2 (note: no seg fault),
cancelx(2-7,10,13,15-18,20,21), oncex3, oncex4
it doesn't mention if it's critical or not and it's for glibc-2.3.4-20040510 so I'm not sure it would apply to my situation anyway.
My host system is the LFS live cd and my questions are: How important is this error? If it's really important how do I fix it?

I'll start over if I have to but I'd kinda like to avoid that if I can

Also, I'm not sure if it matters or not, but running 'make check' again ran thru with no errors.

It's been months since I compiled glibc but I'm fairly certain that make check bombed out on me. I've long since forgotten what the error was but evidently it wasn't critical. I've been done with BLFS and have compiled tons of programs after that even. No problems here. I know it doesn't give you a very good feeling, but if I were you, I would try not to let it bother you...

Keep in mind, there are the mailing lists for LFS and BLFS. No offense to anyone here or this board in general, but they are far superior when it comes to asking technical questions eg- specific errors and what not. The mailing lists are VERY active as well. Your post would NEVER have gone 2 weeks without a response. A day tops... Food for thought if you have any more problems.

Hey thanks for the response Jong357. I gave up on an answer and just continued on. I'm no expert but I think everything is fine. I got to the end of the book anyway. Everything boots and I'm waiting for some more free time before I start on BLFS. I'll keep the mailing lists in mind for any troubles I may run across.

cool.. Yea, I don't think you'll have any problems. It got to a certain point where I just consider the 'make check's a huge waste of time. Install X first, get it connected to the internet and then install firefox/thunderbird or the mozilla suite... that way it becomes fairly self sufficent and you can stay in LFS instead of having to reboot all the time just to post on the web and such....

I got that error doing the make check thing but I just igoned it. Everything went fine from there. The LFS people must know about this by now.
