           Summary: coreutils test-suite fails because of mal-installed temp
           Product: Linux From Scratch
           Version: 5.0
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: Book
        AssignedTo: lfs-book at linuxfromscratch.org
        ReportedBy: the_sithlord at yahoo.com
         QAContact: lfs-book at linuxfromscratch.org

i have followed the procedures in the book quite exactly, except using the
kernel 2.4.25 tarball (2.4.21 to 2.4.23 won't run on my system). when it came to
the chapter 6 coreutils test-suite (the dummy user part), it failed because of a
missing lib file from the perl install (File.pm). i fixed it by re-doing the
instructions of the chapter 5 perl installation, except instead of doing "make
perl utilities" i issued "make" to build the whole package, which includes the
missing lib/IO directory that contains File.pm. The manual copy procedure of the
files after that was again followed strictly as described in the book. so the
only difference was "make" instead of "make perl utilities".
i don't use bugzilla regularly, so please write an email if you need to contact me.
