Angry LFS 7.2: make check failure on make-3.8.2


When I run make check on make-3.82, 1 test, the options/dash-l, fails. Is this an acceptable failure?
Processor: Intel Core i7
Installing on VMware Workstation 9

Is this make from chapter 5 or from chapter 6?

If it is from chapter 5: 4.6. About the Test Suites and this from chapter 5.26:
Quote:
As discussed earlier, running the test suite is not mandatory for the temporary tools here in this chapter.
In short: Don't run the test in all of chapter 5.

Did you check what is mentioned in the output?

Anything worth mentioning?

Are you using any make flags to build/test (i.e.: make -j X)? If so: try without. Some of the tests will fail when using multiple jobs/cores.

Here is what dash-l.diff says:
Code:
*** work/options/dash-l.base    Thu Oct 25 22:26:04 2012
--- work/options/dash-l.log     Thu Oct 25 22:26:02 2012
***************
*** 0 ****
--- 1,2 ----
+ TWO FAILED
+ THREE FAILED
I am also not using any flags.

Not much to go on.

I haven't run into or seen this specific failure before and am not sure if you can ignore this one.

I would suggest to remove make's build directory and try this chapter again with a clean sheet. Carefully check the patch output, config.log and make step for anything strange.

If the make check step still throws this specific error you could decide to continue with the next chapter (I haven't been able to find anything on-line that deals with this specific problem).

Oddly enough, simply deleting it and recompiling it seems to have fixed it. I can now move on with my installation. Thanks for the help!
