Description Matt Turner gentoo-dev 2019-03-17 06:08:26 UTC
Created attachment 569410 [details]

Looks like the majority are conform/*/linknamespace and ULPs-need-updating failures.
Comment 1 Matt Turner gentoo-dev 2019-03-17 06:17:37 UTC
Actually, from spot checking some of the .out files it seems the math failures might be because the tests have started checking for more exceptional cases; alpha's implementations seem to fail to signal some exceptions. Sigh.

^ you can ignore these, this is bad interference between installed glibc <2.28 and tested glibc (bug in test suite)

^ Known upstream ("Expected failures due to the default (non-)handling of inexact exceptions"). Likely nothing we can do, so let's ignore it.

^ if you could add the .out file content of these two here, that would be great. 

On the whole, this doesnt look too bad to me compared to upstream report, so I'd go ahead. It's your call, but I would like to mask old glibc at some point because of sec bugs.
