Hello

I use LFS V6.4 an have successfully build my toolchain (see previous 
mails).

Hostsystem: Debian Etch on a 10 year old Compaq Deskpro 880MHz with cpuinfo:
processor    : 0
vendor_id    : GenuineIntel
cpu family    : 6
model        : 8
model name    : Pentium III (Coppermine)
stepping    : 3
cpu MHz        : 797.441
cache size    : 256 KB
fdiv_bug    : no
hlt_bug        : no
f00f_bug    : no
coma_bug    : no
fpu        : yes
fpu_exception    : yes
cpuid level    : 2

During building Glibc in Chapter 6.9 I've got the following errors while 
testing:

root:/sources/glibc-build# make -k check 2>&1 | tee glibc-check-log
....
make[1]: Target `check' not remade because of errors.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/sources/glibc-2.8-20080929'

make: *** [check] Error 2

I searched the web for explanations with google e.g. about "LFS 6.4 
[/sources/glibc-build/nptl/tst-mutex8.out] Error 1" and other patterns, 
I also searched the LFS homepage for explanation. I could only find 
hints for LFS V6.2 e.g. at 
http://dvm.zapto.org:8080/websvn/filedetails.php?repname=shared_codes&path=%2Fpython%2Fwebpy%2Fpywebpywiki%2Fcurrent%2FLFS&rev=160&sc=1
with the passage
"When i do the `make -k check 2>&1 | tee glibc-check-log` i got some errors

Unfortunately I didn't find hints about this errors. Are this errors crucial or can I continue with building LFS without suspicion about operability of my future LFS system?

I am pleased about your advise.
