I'm using LFS 6.2 as my host while building 6.3 and I've run into what appears
to be an issue with using a tickless kernel on the host. I make it thru chap
5 w/o any issues at all, but when i hit glibc )and later gcc) in chap 6, the
tests fail. I'm not in front of the build computer right now, so i can't
cut-n-paste, but the failing test (in both cases) references a thread running
for a length of time 'outside acceptable values'
When i google the exact error message, i find a post from greg schafer about
glibc 2.4.x and kernels > 2.6.20 .. based on the error message and the
conversation around greg's patch, i'm really leaning towards my tickless
kernel as the culprit, but wanted to see if anyone here had seen anything
along these lines.
i expect to boot into a 'normal' kernel on the host and try again soon, so
i'll know for sure, but if i can avoid that hassle i'd be much happier
