Description Robert Scheck 2005-10-29 09:04:12 EDT
Description of problem:
While rebuilding latest coreutils from Rawhide, I get the following error 

make[3]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/coreutils-5.92/tests/misc'
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/coreutils-5.92/tests/misc'
Making check in mkdir
make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/coreutils-5.92/tests/mkdir'
make  check-TESTS
make[3]: Entering directory `/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/coreutils-5.92/tests/mkdir'
FAIL: p-3
PASS: p-1
PASS: p-2
PASS: special-1
PASS: perm
PASS: parents
PASS: t-slash

Please report to bug-coreutils@gnu.org
make[3]: *** [check-TESTS] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/coreutils-5.92/tests/mkdir'

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

How reproducible:
Everytime, try to rebuild latest coreutils.

Actual results:
Rebuilding of coreutils 5.92 fails at mkdir testing

Expected results:
Building without failure... ;-)
Comment 1 Mamoru TASAKA 2005-10-31 11:20:29 EST
I am faced with this problem, too, if rebuilding rpm as root.

This is because root can execute "mkdir" on the directory of no permission
( perhaps this is the default ). So the failure occurs at the line 29 of
p-3 test.
Comment 2 Mamoru TASAKA 2005-11-09 23:22:34 EST
This bug is perhaps fixed in coreutils-5.93-1 (at least for me, 
rebuilding coreutils 5.93-1 suceeds.)

From /usr/share/doc/coreutils-5.93/ChangeLog.bz2:
2005-10-30  Paul Eggert  <eggert@cs.ucla.edu>

        * tests/mkdir/p-3: Require that the test be run as non-root.
        Problem and trivial fix reported by Theodoros V. Kalamatianos.
