bad testsuite results with ghc-

As I've mailed

My testsuite results can be found under:

371 unexpected failures resp. 195 unexpected failures

These are far too many failures, I think. I've only called "make" in ghc-regress. The results do not only depend on the build-tree but at least on the user's package.conf file.

Would someone care to look through the logs?

In the Mac log, most of the failures seem to be due to not finding gmp.h; do you know what the problem is with that?

I'm just merging a patch to fix the hpc failures.

Replying to igloo:

In the Mac log, most of the failures seem to be due to not finding gmp.h; do you know what the problem is with that?

It seems my CPATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH was not set to /opt/local/{include,lib} when running the test suite (as was the case when building) Usually I copy gmp.h and libgmp.a manually to the installation place so that my created binaries do not rely on a dynamic libgmp. My fault.

fixing my CPATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH on our ppc Mac 10.4 leaves 155 unexpected failures:

  • Milestone changed from 6.10.1 to 6.10.2

comment:6 Changed 7 years ago by igloo

  • Architecture changed from Unknown/Multiple to powerpc
  • Milestone changed from 6.10.2 to _|_
  • Operating System changed from Unknown/Multiple to MacOS X
  • Priority changed from high to normal

threaded2 segfaults, panics or times out on some tests. The ffi009, ffi014 and num012 test failures also look like bugs.

The others seem to all be either things like hpc-inplace missing, bytestring tests being for a different version of bytestring, etc; or failures of external things, e.g. gcc internal compiler errors.

As this isn't one of our tier 1 platforms we're unlikely to look into the failures in any more detail, but I'll leave this ticket open in milestone _|_, so that it is listed if anyone searches for PPC tickets.
