Hi all,



my host Linux system (AMD Athlon 2000 Hz) is a debian etch system with

- gcc 4.1.1-15
- kernel 2.6.18-5-686
- libc6  2.3.6.ds1-13etch5

I tried to build a LFS system from the LFS 6.3 book. However during page 
6.9 (Installation of Glibc) the test suite for Glibc is considered 
critical. Unfortunaely I got the following error after
    make -k check 2>&1 | tee glibc-check-log

====================================================================
package glibc:/usr/src/glibc/glibc-build> grep Error glibc-check-log
make[2]: [/usr/src/glibc/glibc-build/posix/annexc.out] Error 1 (ignored)

make[2]: *** [/usr/src/glibc/glibc-build/nptl/tst-cleanupx4.out] Error 1
make[1]: *** [nptl/tests] Error 2
make: *** [check] Error 2
====================================================================

However in ../glibc-2.5.1/nptl/tst-mutex8.c is mentioned

/* This test checks behavior not required by POSIX.  */

So I am not sure if I did something wrong or if I can continue


Thanks in advance
