I rebuild Fedora perl packages each week and I discovered that postgresql-9.3.4-8.fc21 fails tests sometimes:
test prepare ... ok
test without_oid ... FAILED
test conversion ... ok
test truncate ... ok
test alter_table ... ok
test sequence ... ok
test polymorphism ... ok
test rowtypes ... ok
test returning ... ok
test largeobject ... ok
test with ... ok
test xml ... ok
test stats ... FAILED
2 of 136 tests failed.
The differences that caused some tests to fail can be viewed in the
file "/builddir/build/BUILD/postgresql-9.3.4/src/test/regress/regression.diffs". A copy of the test summary that you see
above is saved in the file "/builddir/build/BUILD/postgresql-9.3.4/src/test/regress/regression.out".
GNUmakefile:141: recipe for target 'installcheck' failed
make: Leaving directory '/builddir/build/BUILD/postgresql-9.3.4/src/test/regress'
The sometimes means twice <http://ppisar.fedorapeople.org/perl_rebuild/scratch/index.xhtml#ppostgresql> in last eight attempts.
This can be a race condition in the tests as my builder is usually overloaded (especially the I/O).
I don't have detailed logs from the BUILD direcotory as the mock environments are deleted. I report this issue only to be sure that you know about that.
Thanks for the report. I am unable to reproduce that locally but I'll keep this
open for some time. And.. at least we could forward regression.diffs content to
build.log in case of test failure.
Petr, again, thanks for reporting that. However, I was unable to reproduce so
far so I am closing this bug INSUFFICIENT_DATA.
Anyway, I applied fix in spec file which should give use more info next time,
in particular 'regressions.diffs' contents:
