Description Martin Cermak 2015-02-24 17:06:51 UTC
stap -V reports wrong version number:

# stap -V
Systemtap translator/driver (version 2.7/0.161/0.158, rpm 2.7-1.el6)

This causes a few tcl sourcing errors in the testsuite. Example: 

Running ./systemtap.base/callee.exp ...
ERROR: tcl error sourcing ./systemtap.base/callee.exp.
ERROR: 0.161/0.158 is not a valid version number
    while executing
"error "$vers1 is not a valid version number""
    (procedure "strverscmp" line 5)
    invoked from within
"strverscmp $ELF_Version 0.153"
    (procedure "callee_probes_p" line 3)
    invoked from within
    invoked from within
"if {! [callee_probes_p]} { untested "$test"; return }"
    (file "./systemtap.base/callee.exp" line 6)
    invoked from within
"source ./systemtap.base/callee.exp"
    ("uplevel" body line 1)
    invoked from within
"uplevel #0 source ./systemtap.base/callee.exp"
    invoked from within
"catch "uplevel #0 source $test_file_name""

Affected testcases: callee.exp, listing_mode.exp, unprivileged_myproc.exp

Comment 1 Frank Ch. Eigler 2015-02-24 20:11:23 UTC
The problem is that stap was built against a different version
of elfutils-devel (whatever was in the buildroot) than it is
being run against (a rebased elfutils).  It is not actually a
problem, except for this test case code.

During a respin of the rpm, we could buildroot-override to the
new elfutils.

Comment 3 Martin Cermak 2015-04-15 12:30:44 UTC
Verified with systemtap-2.7-2.el6. Covered by upstream testsuite.
