LSB-FHS test suite V1.0
After beta testing for a couple of months I have delta'd a set of
changes (mainly bug fixes) and have released a 1.0 release of the
LSB-FHS test suite which tests the filesystem hierarchy aspects of the LSB.
I attach a copy of the release note below. I expect to revise a bunch of
the tests when FHS 2.1 appears.
As ever bug reports are welcome.

LSB-FHS Release 1.0
This document provides Release notes for the Verification suite for the
Filesystem Hierarchy aspects of the Linux Standard Base.
1. Release Overview
LSB-FHS 1.0 is the general availability release of this test suite.
LSB-FHS is built using the VSXgen (the generic VSX test framework), and
contains tests for the Filesystem Hierarchy aspects of the Linux
This test suite has not yet been adopted by the Linux Standard Base team
and no claims should be made of LSB conformance to this version of the
test suite. The test assertions being tested are in the file
It is expected that certain test cases will be revised when the next
version of the Filesystem Hierarchy Specification is finalised. This
version of the test suite is aligned with FHS 2.0.
1.1 Changes since the last release
The following changes have been made since the last
Bug fix changes have been made, see the CHANGES file for details.
2. Release Contents
The release consists of the following files.

3. Obtaining TET
LSB-FHS runs under TET3. A suitable version of TET3 (the unsupported release of
TETware) can be obtained at:
TET3 must be configured to build as the Lite version . Do not use
the Distributed version. For more information on TET , see
LSB-FHS includes a User's Guide which provides comprehensive information
on the installation, configuration and use of LSB-FHS. Please consult
this guide for assistance with LSB-FHS use. Appendix A contains a
checklist of the steps needed to configure, install and run the LSB-FHS
Support related questions and problem reports should be directed to by
email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The size of LSB-FHS when the suite is built is approximately 10MB. The
size of the compressed distribution is roughly 1 MB. When running the
complete test suite, journal files will be produced that are typically
less than 1MB in length, so its recommended that at least 20MB of disk
space be allowed for a test campaign.
The test suite takes approximately 30 minutes to run depending on the
speed of the platform under test
