We plan to release coreutils-8.28 towards the end of this week,
so any testing you can do on various different systems between now and then
would be most welcome.


You can download the coreutils snapshot in xz format (5.2 MB) from:

And verify with gpg or md5sum with:
  MD5 (coreutils-ss.tar.xz) = a1712bf70c4fc51ee47a4aea20180514


To test follow this standard procedure:

  tar -xf coreutils-ss.tar.xz
  cd coreutils-8.27.103-db8d1/
  ./configure && make check VERBOSE=yes

Failures are reported and details are in tests/test-suite.log


Changes since the previous snapshot are:

    tty: fix exit code with EINVAL

    * src/tty.c (main): All systems mention that isatty()
    man return EINVAL as well as (the POSIX compliant) ENOTTY.
    Also Centos 6 was seen to return EINVAL from ttyname().
    * tests/misc/ Fix a test issue where we assume
    standard input is always a valid tty.
    Reported by Assaf Gordon on OpenSolaris 5.10 and 5.11,
    and Centos 6.5

    runcon: revert "disable use of the TIOCSTI ioctl"

    This reverts commit v8.27-97-g8cb06d4 because
    the setsid() fallback was not implemented correctly
    and disabling the ioctl was not a complete solution
    to the security issue of the child being passed
    the tty of the parent.

    Given runcon is not really a sandbox command,
    the advice is to use `runcon ... setsid ...`
    to avoid this particular issue.

    stat: fix determination of max name length on BSD systems

    We only use one of statfs or statvfs for `stat -f`
    and on the BSDs we use statfs which doesn't have the
    f_namelen member.  However on OpenBSD and later FreeBSD
    systems statfs does provide f_namemax, so use that.

    * NEWS: Mention the improvement for OpenBSD and FreeBSD.
    * m4/stat-prog.m4: Check for f_namemax in the statfs struct.
    * src/stat.c: Return '?' rather than '*' when we can't
    determine the max length of the file system.
    * tests/ln/ This test was failing on all BSDs
    due to '*' being returned for the max length which
    caused the test to attempt to create 1Mi+1 names.
    The test now uses a short name when we can't determine
    the max name length to use.

    Reported by Assaf Gordon on various BSD based systems.
