We plan to release coreutils-8.32 in the next few days
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 (5.3 MB) from:

And verify with gpg or md5sum with:
    MD5 (coreutils-ss.tar.xz) = cbc9d6ab61890e653ac46d9b3705c5e8


To test follow this standard procedure:

    tar -xf coreutils-ss.tar.xz
    cd coreutils-8.31.99-f2034/
    ./configure && make check VERBOSE=yes

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


Changes since the last snapshot are:

    tests: avoid a false failure on OpenIndiana 11

    * tests/misc/ Split the large timeout
    handling to ...
    * tests/misc/ ... here, so that
    the 3 second delay is contained in its own test, and if
    the test is skipped due invalid handling within timeout(1),
    it will be more apparent.
    Also adjust the check so we skip whenever the kernel timer
    fires immediately, to handle the buggy OpenIndiana 11 kernel also.

    tests: avoid a hang on GNU/Hurd from 2019

    * tests/du/ Add a timeout around:
    `dd bs=1 seek=8G of=big < /dev/null`

commit 04e2b9b1a637ea138331a1b6a6b11849368d3467

    tests: use bash in some scripts to avoid false failures

    * init.cfg (require_bash_as_SHELL_): A new function to replace
    SHELL for the current test, with bash if available.
    This is useful on OpenIndiana 11 where /bin/sh was seen
    to have races in handling of SIGPIPE.
    * tests/misc/ Use the new function to enforce bash.
    * tests/misc/ Likewise.

    tests: improve test coverage for ls stat checks

    * tests/ls/ Check for the availability
    of various stat calls individually, and add statx() and fstatat64()
    to the list to check.  Fix the stat counting logic to
    ignore lines like "+++ exited with 0 +++".
    * tests/ls/ Check syscalls other than stat().

    tests: enable 4 more tests to be executed on FreeBSD

    * init.cfg (gcc_shared_libs_): New variable.
    (gcc_shared_): Use it, instead of hardcoding -ldl.
    (require_gcc_shared_): Determine the suitable value
    for gcc_shared_libs_.

    tests: fix incorrect `|| fail` pattern in tests

    * tests/ls/ s/|| fail/|| fail=1/.
    * tests/misc/ Likewise.
    * tests/touch/ Likewise.
    * (sc_prohibit_or_fail): A new syntax-check to avoid this.

    tests: avoid false failures on darwin 19.2.0

    With these adjustments, all tests pass on macOS Catalina.

    * tests/dd/ Adjust so that systems like apfs that
    don't create holes < 16 MiB do not fail erroneously.
    * tests/touch/ Darwin was seen to dereference
    symlinks to files when given a trailing slash, so avoid
    that particular case.

    tests: fix test failure on FreeBSD 12

    * tests/misc/ Limit the effect of the fwrite
    override to streams != stderr, as fwrite is in the error() path there.

    build: once again distribute .tar.gz files

    * Reenable distribution of gzip-compressed
    tarballs, for Guix bootstrapping reasons as discussed at:
    * Remove me, as now a committer.
    * NEWS (Build-related): Mention this.
