I am using a host Ubuntu 14.04 system, and I am currently going through the Linux From Scratch guide here. At section 6.9, http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/view/stable/chapter06/glibc.html, after compiling and testing glibc-2.19 I have received the following errors:

make[2]: *** [/sources/glibc-build/libio/tst-ftell-partial-wide.out] Error 1
make[1]: *** [libio/tests] Error 2
make[2]: *** [/sources/glibc-build/posix/tst-getaddrinfo4.out] Error 1
make[2]: [/sources/glibc-build/posix/annexc.out] Error 1 (ignored)
make[1]: *** [posix/tests] Error 2
make[2]: [/sources/glibc-build/conform/run-conformtest.out] Error 1 (ignored)
make: *** [check] Error 2

A better formatted paste is at pastebin: http://pastebin.com/qTCM1Rif

So far there was no other issues before this chapter, and I don't think there are any other problems. Can these errors be safely ignored, and what are the causes of these errors?

There might be a timeout factor involved, I am going to retry the tests with:

TIMEOUTFACTOR=16 make -k check 2>&1 | tee glibc-check-log

To see if the errors will clear up. Will post results when complete

Log files for the entire build process of almost all the packages are available on their site. You might want to check that the next time.. linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/build-logs/7.5/core2duo/logs –  Nighpher Jun 29 at 9:36

This might be a little late, but no, those errors are totally fine. It even says so in that specific LFS chapter.
