Tcl/Tk 8.4.18

Reported by: Ag. Hatzimanikas Owned by: Randy McMurchy
Priority: normal Milestone: 6.3
Component: BOOK Version: SVN
Severity: normal Keywords:


Version increment to 8.4.18

There are some failures in both of test suites. Here is the summary of Tcl,

all.tcl:	Total	10932	Passed	9939	Skipped	937	Failed	56
Sourced 129 Test Files.
Files with failing tests: http.test httpold.test io.test socket.test unixInit.test

Also running the Tk test suite, under one of those tiled window managers, i.e., Ion, Awesome, dwm, wmii, the suite will exit. Switching to floating mode, tests are continuing to run.

As I don't have any prior experience with the tcl/tk test suites, I am not sure if those failures can consider so serious to prevent updating.

This is wierd. When I was goofing around the other day I used both the -18 and -15 versions and when I ran the test suite in Tcl, only the http.test failed. It was the only one.

I'll check again, but if we can't even get consistent results on similar platforms (you're using an LFS-6.3 platform, right) then this spooks me.

I'll do the test again and report back.

Now I really don't know what to think. :-(

Same results with LFS-6.3 and with current SVN.


Your results looks good, and maybe there is something unpredictable in my setup. I tried to run them under two different shells and as root, but no matter what, I am taking those failures, but it could be probably my fault.

I'll test this out several times to see if I can get consistant results in the test suite. If so I'll update, if not we'll punt.

Resolution: fixed
Status: assignedclosed

I could not reproduce any test failures after several attempts of unpacking, building and running the tests. There are failures in the Tk test, but we recommend that the tests are not run anyway.

Updated BLFS to tcl-8.4.18 and tk-8.4.18
