128<para>It is advisable to test the installation of
129<application>LessTif</application> using the included test suite. It is
130not required to install any of the resulting binaries to validate the
131installation. Issue the following commands to build the test suite:</para>
132
133<screen><userinput><command>cd test &amp;&amp;
134./configure &amp;&amp;
135make</command></userinput></screen>
136
137<para>To run the tests, issue the following commands:</para>
138
139<screen><userinput><command>cd Xm &amp;&amp;
140./testall *</command></userinput></screen>
141
142<para>You'll need to manually close three of the test windows. The first one
143is from <command>test28</command> in the
144<filename class='directory'>list</filename> directory. The second one is from
145<command>test10</command> in the
146<filename class='directory'>menushell</filename> directory. You should click
147on the button in the window and choose <quote>exit</quote> (do it twice) to
148finish the test. The third test is from <command>test24</command> in the
149<filename class='directory'>scrolledwindow</filename> directory.</para>
150
151<para>As many as 100 tests are known to fail. The patch applied at the
152beginning of the installation created a file used to compare known failures
153to the failures from the test run. This file was created from an installation
154using the current <acronym>LFS</acronym> book and should be a fairly accurate
155representation of the failures you'll encounter. You could see some minor
156variances, however.</para>
