Description Bernard Johnson 2005-04-24 13:21:46 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050416 Fedora/1.0.3-1.3.1 Firefox/1.0.3

Description of problem:
Openssl functionality is now enabled.  The corresponding tests associated with it should be run as well.  Without running the tests, there is no way to know if the openssl functionality is working correctly or not.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Rebuild rpm and watch for tests.
2. Observe:
openssl_1                      [ skipped ]
rpl_openssl                    [ skipped ]

Actual Results:  <snip>
openssl_1                      [ skipped ]
rpl_openssl                    [ skipped ]

Expected Results:  These tests should be run since openssl is now enabled in the build.

Additional info:

Although it doesn't cause a loss of functionality, there is no integrity to the ssl portion of the build without a test.

[ digs around... ]  Hmm, you'd think that the mysql makefiles would be designed to test optional 
features if configured in, wouldn't you?  But nooooo ... "make test" doesn't run *any* optional tests.

Thanks for the heads-up.  I'll see about patching around this bit of brain damage.

Well, sho 'nuf, this was a good idea, because there seems to be a problem :-(

What I find is that the openssl tests both pass fine on FC3, but the rpl_openssl
one fails (it just hangs forever) on FC4.  All seven supported arches behave the
same, so it's not platform-specific; I'm inclined to think it's got something to
do with the newer version of OpenSSL in FC4.

I'm currently pursuing the theory that the root cause is insufficient locking
inside mysqld, as described here:
Comment 3 Tom Lane 2005-07-12 23:21:11 EDT
Turns out that this isn't an SSL issue at all, but sloppy design of the regression test:
Still it's good to have the test passing.  I have a workaround in place in mysql-4.1.12-1 and up.
Thanks for the report!
