Description Steve Snyder 2005-07-15 19:56:18 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050520 Fedora/1.7.8-1.icc

Description of problem:
In the course of rebuilding the binary GLibC RPMs, the automatic self test ("make check") fails several nptl-related tests.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL4 with "[]Everything" package selection
2. Install all available updates.
3. Run: "rpmbuild --rebuild --target i686 glibc-2.3.4-2.9.src.rpm"

Actual Results:  Here's an example of failure.  See the attached log for the full list of errors.

Failed to kill test process: No child processes
make[2]: *** [/home/rpmbuild/BUILD/glibc-2.3-20050218T0151/build-i686-linuxnptl/nptl/tst-eintr2.out] Error 1
Failed to kill test process: No child processes
make[2]: *** [/home/rpmbuild/BUILD/glibc-2.3-20050218T0151/build-i686-linuxnptl/nptl/tst-eintr3.out] Error 1
Failed to kill test process: No child processes
make[2]: *** [/home/rpmbuild/BUILD/glibc-2.3-20050218T0151/build-i686-linuxnptl/nptl/tst-eintr5.out] Error 1

Expected Results:  None of the self-tests should fail.

Additional info:

This is on a Pentium3-based machine with kernel 2.6.9-11.EL.

Works just fine here.

Comment 3 Jos Vos 2005-07-18 15:57:06 UTC
Same here when rebuilding glibc on a dual Xeon machine (on a RHEL4 rebuild): I
see exactly the same problems.  Also having problems on x86_64, not exactly the
same, it seems, but still fatal.

Note that if you kill a hanging process, the build proceeds and finally produces
binary rpm's.  It looks like the "make ... | tee check.log || :" is not doing
what it should do (will try to further analyze this).

Comment 4 Jakub Jelinek 2005-07-18 16:00:40 UTC
(on a RHEL4 rebuild)
Then you are using a different kernel, and if those tests fail, that is most
likely a kernel problem.

Comment 5 Jos Vos 2005-07-18 16:23:54 UTC
Well, the original submitter said he was using a RHEL4 U1 system.

Another issue w.r.t. the spec file is: *if* thoses tests fail, the "make ... |
tee" hangs until you kill something.  I don't know if something can be improved

Anyway, I'll leave the bug closed and try to solve it myself ;-).
