CVS-1.11.23: comment out test suite

Reported by: Fernando de Oliveira Owned by: Fernando de Oliveira
Priority: normal Milestone: 7.8
Component: BOOK Version: SVN
Severity: normal Keywords:


Test suit fails at basicb-21, less than 1 SBU from start. It is supposed to run for over one hour.

I am using --with-rsh=ssh.

This can be fixed by

Unfortunately, again, after a loooong time, it hangs for ate least two reasons.

It tries to do an ssh connection to

First, I was in one terminal, following check.log, because during the test no message goes to the console and didn't notice, when the standard ssh trust question appeared in the other terminal. After yes, message was the expected broken pipe.

does nothing.

I replaced by


but have no idea if it is correct. Perhaps that is the reason for the hung up.

Perhaps, the switches discussed for the tests and in Optional dependencies:

--with-editor=<desired text editor>

--with-rsh=ssh or empty (?)

should be mentioned in Command Explanations.

Also the text explaining the tests problems could be improved.

I think this is all.

Please, I would really prefer somebody else to confirm or unconfirm the problems and fix the issues.
