Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

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:
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
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....
