s390 buildd problems for glibc
If you take a look at the build log for 2.3.5-8:
you'll see that it timed out. This is almost certainly caused by the
terrible NPTL test results; some of them leave background processes
running if they fall over sufficiently badly.
I rebuilt glibc on raptor by hand. The only NPTL test failures were:
make: *** [/home/dan/glibc-2.3.5/build-tree/s390-nptl/nptl/tst-cancel17.out] Error 1
make: *** [/home/dan/glibc-2.3.5/build-tree/s390-nptl/nptl/tst-dlsym1.out] Error 1
make: *** [/home/dan/glibc-2.3.5/build-tree/s390-nptl/nptl/tst-cancelx17.out] Error 1
make: *** [nptl/tests] Error 2
The two cancel17 failures can be ignored, they're a bug in the test. I
don't know what the dlsym1 test failure is. But in any case the
important bit is that all the other threading tests worked just fine,
and none of them hung.
What kernel is the build daemon running? Does it have threading
problems? I don't think glibc 2.3.5 has ever successfully autobuilt on
