Running Octave tests under xvfb
Running the unit tests in some Octave add-on packages fails because some
of them use graphical output (e.g. ). One possible way to fix the
problem is by running the tests under xvfb. I did the changes to the
Octave support of autodep8, which are now in the branch called
octave-xvfb . For your convenience, I am attaching below the diff
between branches master and octave-xvfb.
If nobody objects, I will merge the branch into master and upload a new
version of the package to unstable. We will need also to upload a new
version to stretch-backports, such that ci.d.o will behave correctly.
I am Cc:ing this message to the DOG mailing list, so that the Octave
folks can also comment on this change (hopefully it will not break
