I am following LFS 6.7, and I reached the point where I compile glibc-2.12.1 .

I mounted the LFS partition with the atime option: here is a confirm on that I think: /dev/sdb1 on /mnt /lfs type ext4 (rw)

I get the following errors on making the test, and I have no clue if I should try to resolve them, or just ignore them and go on ...

rpc/types.h sunrpc/rpc/svc_auth.h sunrpc/rpcsvc/bootparam.h sysvipc/sys/ipc.h \

You can safely ignore this error when build LFS.

Why? Please explain. – Mark Wagner Feb 26 '11 at 0:48
Because the float math tests are not critical for building and work. Result of the passage may depend on the CPU. – ooshro Feb 26 '11 at 5:16
THANK YOU ! I was really puzzled by this ! I wish there was another opinion, but i will settle for your only :-) – Oz123 Feb 26 '11 at 13:26
