comment:1 by Xi Ruoyao, 3 years ago

The nss-standalone patch is broken for this version. I'll make a rebased one.

And there has been a mistake in nss page: the testsuite isn't run during build. The test executables are built but not run. To run it:

cd tests &&
HOST=example DOMSUF=org ./

The value of HOST and DOMSUF should be replaced with the FQDN we set up in LFS.

Thank you Xi for the rebased patch

comment:4 by Douglas R. Reno, 3 years ago

After encountering a problem that was mostly my doing (and also inspired the /etc/hosts change in LFS), I think I've figured out the tests. We'll use HOST=localhost DOMSUF=localdomain as our values for ./

It's worth noting that if you interrupt the tests with Ctrl+C, it'll leave an extra process around (selfserv) that doesn't get killed and causes the tests to crash next time they are run.

I've implemented the test suite in the book, and dropped some notes into comments in the XML file.

Notable Changes in NSS 3.53

    When using the Makefiles, NSS can be built in parallel, speeding up those builds to more similar performance as the system. (Bug 290526)
    SEED is now moved into a new freebl directory freebl/deprecated (Bug 1636389).
        SEED will be disabled by default in a future release of NSS. At that time, users will need to set the compile-time flag (Bug 1622033) to disable that deprecation in order to use the algorithm.
        Algorithms marked as deprecated will ultimately be removed.
    Several root certificates in the Mozilla program now set the CKA_NSS_SERVER_DISTRUST_AFTER attribute, which NSS consumers can query to further refine trust decisions. (Bug 1618404, Bug 1621159) If a builtin certificate has a CKA_NSS_SERVER_DISTRUST_AFTER timestamp before the  SCT or NotBefore date of a certificate that builtin issued, then clients can elect not to trust it.
        This attribute provides a more graceful phase-out for certificate authorities than complete removal from the root certificate builtin store.
