Some Bison tests fail on LFS 11.1


Hi,

I'm trying to build LFS 11.1, sysV init, on a 64 bit, Asus ROG strix g15 laptop. It was building fine until the chapter 8 tests for Bison.

I've attached the log file of the 'make check'. It is only 16 tests that failed out of 712 but I want to be sure that it's OK to proceed.

For some packages -- gcc and its three library dependencies, glibc, binutils -- the tests are essential. For most packages they are not. For something like bison, 16 failures out of 712 doesn't sound terrible to me. In your place I would just continue.

Thanks! That sounds like a good rule of thumb.

I'll keep that mind for next time.

Looking again at your attachment, it seems to me that all the recorded failures are in a section that produces diagnostic messages for various kinds of code errors. Now you are not going to be using bison yourself for developing programs. You only need it as a dependency for other builds. So I really doubt that those errors are significant.

@hazel, thanks for informing me on this.

It is true that I am unlikely to use Bison for developing purposes, only for satisfying a dependency.
