Re: lsb-distribution-test-1.1.3-1 hangs at T.execl
Is it any particular test case that is hanging? I do
not think these use any ttys as such (the equivalent tests in
the POSIX.os area do, and should work fine using pseudo ttys).
Many of these tests are exercising
semaphores and other ipc stuff , that could be the cause of the hang.
Did we ever decide what is mandatory in this area of the specification?
I believe the tests are known to work on Solaris -but there
could still be test issues since they have not been
run on many other platforms. If we can identify the cause
we can consider whether we want to waive these.
