use of xvfb-run in pbuilder builds
I am trying to use xvfb-run to permit pbuilder to build some packages
which need to connect to X. In both cases, if I do a local build with
dpkg-buildpackages, the connection to the xvfb server works fine, however
it fails in pbuilder. In one case, it is a perl-tk module which tries to
open a window to run tests:
xvfb-run /usr/bin/make test
"couldn't connect to display \":99\"
In the second case, it is a python package which successfully connects to
X initially but then there is a failure. I know this because if I don't
try to use xvfb-run, the failure occurs _before_ any compilation happens.
xvfb-run python2.3 ./setup.py build
lots of compilation ensues
/usr/bin/xvfb-run: line 158: kill: (23268) - No such process
Are there any suggestions or can anyone point me to a package that
successfully uses xvfb under pbuilder?
