Yes I mean the pass1-4, but I'm actually worried about losing the
messages from *ok failures.
Before I wasn't waiting until the end of the testsuite run -- I waited
until I saw a failure and then hit crtl-c and looked at the logfile.
Now I see that when you let the testsuite run through completely, some
output ends up at the end of the file. It's not all that useful though
-- I see a deluge of information from what appears to be both passing
and failing tests, with no clear way to tell what output came from what
test. A 7MB log file is far too verbose for me to figure out what
happened. It seems to be giving be something like this:
I'm not even sure if all that output at the end really has the error
information I need. For example, buildok/syscall.stp is failing (known
problem -- missing some syscalls), but I can't find anything in the log
file that tells me the failure message.
The deluge wouldn't be so bad if it was kept inline with the test
I tried taking out your mysterious ">>& systemtap.log", and that just
made it so I don't see the output in the log at all. So to refresh your
memory, Frank, you probably added that so the output would not be
completely lost. ;)
