Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 469199
systemtap testsuite regressions
Last modified: 2009-01-20 16:06:34 EST
Description of problem:
During rhel5.3 beta testing, regressions were found in testing. A few regressions aren't actual problems with systemtap, just with the systemtap testsuite.
For instance, the problems outlined by the following systemtap bugs:
- http://sourceware.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=6762 (Some syscalls functions just wrappers for other syscalls)
- http://sources.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=6562 ($SYSTEMTAP_DEBUGINFO_PATH does not work)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Kernel Version: 2.6.18-118.el5
Related Package Version: systemtap-0.7.2-1.el5
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run systemtap-0.6.2-1.el5 testsuite
2. Run systemtap-0.7.2-1.el5 testsuite
3. Compare results
systemtap.base/debugpath.exp (PASS -> FAIL on all arches)
systemtap.syscalls/syscalls.exp will see additional failures on x86_64
Setting "Regression" flag, though it's cosmetic. Patches are ready for
backporting into rhel5.3.
