I'm having an issue with Chapter 6.25 version 8.3. I followed the instructions but when I came to the make check part it showed me the output:

(lfs chroot) root:/sources/attr-2.4.48# make check
Making check in po
make[1]: Entering directory '/sources/attr-2.4.48/po'
make[1]: Nothing to be done for 'check'.
make[1]: Leaving directory '/sources/attr-2.4.48/po'
make[1]: Entering directory '/sources/attr-2.4.48'
make  check-TESTS
make[2]: Entering directory '/sources/attr-2.4.48'
make[3]: Entering directory '/sources/attr-2.4.48'
PASS: test/attr.test
FAIL: test/root/getfattr.test
Testsuite summary for attr 2.4.48
# TOTAL: 2

# XFAIL: 0

See ./test-suite.log
Please report to acl-devel@nongnu.org

As you can see that failed getfattr.test but I don't know why it failed.

I need to understand why I came to this solution.


Adding the ./test-suite.log file.

  • I see this is tagged "Fedora", so I assume you used Fedora as your host OS? Are you by any chance using ext4? If so, then I too have the same issue (albeit with LFS version 8.4), and it could be something to do with Fedora's ext4 formatting tools. – Nathan Vance May 13 at 18:03
