Description of problem:
I am unable to execute tests on F-19/ppc64 because of the following error:
test -x runtest.sh || chmod a+x runtest.sh

I have scheduled a job in beaker on F-19 / ppc64
What is the 'beakerlib' package version? We had such bug in F19 gold which was fixed later in an update. If the box in question was not updated, but simply installed from GOLD tree, then it's probably that one.
should be beakerlib-1.7-1.fc19.noarch.
Yep, that's it. That is already fixed in sufficiently updated F19. See bug 961121.

Yes, I can confirm that the bug is fixed in recent beakerlib versions (I tried 1.8-1.fc19). OTOH for some reason the latest version available in F19 ppc64 is 1.7-1.fc19. Any idea why?
Good point. Maybe I need to do something more to update also on ppc. I'll research on that and let you know here.
