Is these errors ok?

 Provided the kernel is 32-bit (uname -m reports i686, NOT x86_64)
you are fine to follow the regular LFS book.

 In fact, that only happens if you have a 64-bit kernel.  My main
build machine is athlon64, and at the moment it is running as a fast

 While I'm keen to get more people testing CLFS, it probably isn't
necessary if all Søren wants is a 32-bit system.  And the bar to
entry is a little higher than for regular LFS.  So, back to his
test failures, which I've pasted in:

 Søren, which version of the book is this ? (I can't tell which
version of glibc you are testing).

 The common factor in all the unexpected failures is 'Error 127'.
I've just tried to find a definitive link on this, without success,
but my gut feeling is that it means "command not found".

 If you have the full log from which this was grepped, take a look
at it (from the host, obviously, to allow you to use less or view)
and search for these failing tests.  I'm guessing fopenloc might
have an error message about mtrace - if so, your perl installation
is broken.  In fact, I'm fairly confident that is the problem -
bug-regex2-mem mentions mtrace (I'm looking at glibc-2.3.6), and
tst-pcre-mem is obviously concerned with perl compatible regexes.
