Hi,

In chapter 6, Coreutils, everything works, until I run "make
check-root" and "make RUN_EXPENSIVE_TESTS=yes check"

>From "make check-root":

cd tests && make check-root

**************************************
This test requires a writable directory on a different
disk partition, and I couldn't find one.  I tried these:
   /tmp /var/tmp /usr/tmp /root
Set your environment variable CANDIDATE_TMP_DIRS to make
this test use a different list.

And from "make RUN_EXPENSIVE_TESTS=yes check":

As you can see, both check's fail. Can this be ignored? Or?
And do you have any idea why this failes?
