Did you run Erlang from the git repository/source
tree or did you do "make release" and run it from
A few tests cases will fail if you have not done
"make release". (One example is
xref_SUITE:md/1 in tools.)
I think that the best way for us to help you is
if you can share the names of the failed
test cases in the following test suites:
We should be able to tell you which ones
that are most likely real bugs, and which
ones that fail because of envioronmental
