Disable the ssl tests suites on arm platform. none

Description Peter Robinson 2011-05-20 04:02:10 EDT
The latest version of nss doesn't build on ARM platforms. It fails a couple of tests (minor details below). nss-util and nss-softokn build without issues. 

The full chain build of the latest nspr/nss-util/nss-softokn/nss can be found here

Comment 1 Peter Robinson 2011-05-23 14:09:08 EDT
We fixed this in F-14/F15/rawhide by disabling tests for ARM.
Comment 2 Elio Maldonado Batiz 2011-05-23 15:04:51 EDT
The test that fail are ssl tests where client times attempinting a connection to the local test server on system with dual ipv6/ipv4 stack. This is related to Bug 539183 for which we had applied an upstream short-term fix for use in Linux and Mac OS X builds and testing, see 
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=617723. Unfortunately, it's not working on arm. Until the problem is fixed we could just opt to disable only the ssl tests.

Created attachment 500487 [details]
Disable the ssl tests suites on arm platform.

Suggested modifications to nss.spec file in the for of a patch to disable only the ssl tests.
