Re: file system race condition testing


Thanks for the test Dan!  I'm going to place it with our filesystem tests,
and it should be in this month's release (sometime next week).

Re: [ANNOUNCE]

Hi Marty,

I upgraded OSDL's STP to use the new April version of LTP and
discovered an error when trying to build it on RedHat 9.0:

 setgroups03.c:68:49: /usr/src/linux/include/linux/limits.h: No such file
 or directory

It appears the above path is hardcoded into setgroups03.c, but on RH9
the path should be /usr/include/linux/limits.h

Should I submit this as a bug?

I think I'm going to update STP to use the March version of LTP for now.

Thanks,
Bryce

Re: [ANNOUNCE]

It looks like changing the line in setgroups03.c to:

 #include <limits.h>

fixes it.  Thanks to Jay Turner for confirming this.

A patch is in the LTP patch tracker for this, as well as fixes for a
couple other minor warnings in some other files.

Bug in chdir01 (ltp version 20040304)

Hi,

	I am seeing a failure of the chdir01 test on the X86-64 architecture
with the following messages:

chdir01     0  INFO  :  File .. in directory .
chdir01     0  INFO  :  File . in directory ..
chdir01     1  FAIL  :  strncmp failed in checkname

	After investigation, I have determined that the failure is due to the
assumption that the order in which directory entries will be read will
always be in the same order (i.e. ".", "..", etc). In this particular
failure case, I am seeing the order as "..", ".", etc. I can get the
test to pass by switching the order of code lines 112 & 113:

-                checkname(".", ddir);
-                checkname("..", ddir);
+                checkname("..", ddir);
+                checkname(".", ddir);

	This, of course, is not a fix, but it demonstrates the behavior that I
am seeing. Some additional observations from this test:

(1) In the checkname() function, a strncmp() function can report a false
match for "." compared with ".." where the string length is 1 (see the
first of the three output messages above). If there is a need for an
exact match, an additional comparison of string lengths would make this
more accurate.

(2) The tst_resm() function call in checkname() uses the format string

Running scripts on the ash shell


Hi all,

I don't arrive to run the scripts of LTP release, because the ash (or dash) does not support the key word
"function" (into ar01 script for example).

Would somebody have a suggestion?

Under which shell this key word "function" is supported ?

Regards,

-Ludo

Just remove the "function" keyword.  I'm guessing the test was ported
from an old Korn shell that required it.

> Under which shell this key word "function" is supported ?

bash and pdksh support it.  The ksh man page (from pdksh) includes some
docs on the differences between "function foo" and "foo()."  If you run
into any more refer to that document and send patches accordingly.

Thanks,
