Description Drake Wyrm 2005-09-30 06:19:27 UTC
While updating gnome-base/libbonoboui-2.10.1, I received the following error
during the `make check` phase:

make  check-TESTS
make[3]: Entering directory
ACCESS DENIED  chmod:     /root/.gnome2_private
Could not set mode 0700 on private per-user gnome configuration directory
`/root/.gnome2_private/': Permission denied
FAIL: test-ui-auto
1 of 1 tests failed
make[3]: *** [check-TESTS] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory
make[2]: *** [check-am] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory
make[1]: *** [check-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory
make: *** [check-recursive] Error 1

For now, I will work around the bug by merging with FEATURES=-maketest. Hit me
up for any additional information which may be useful.

The host in question:
Portage (default-linux/x86/2005.0, gcc-3.3.6, glibc-2.3.5-r1,
2.6.12-gentoo-r6 i686)

The attempted build:
[ebuild     U ] gnome-base/libbonoboui-2.10.1 [2.10.0] +X -debug +doc -static

Running FEATURES='-maketest' emerge --oneshot =gnome-base/libbonoboui-2.10.1
completed without error.

please submit a patch upstream to fix the test.

Comment 2 Drake Wyrm 2005-10-08 10:07:13 UTC
Please add RESTRICT=test to ebuild if no other solution seems likely.
Comment 3 Joe McCann (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-08 14:25:24 UTC
If we add that option to packages that don't pass tests then the whole maketest
feature is useless. I realise this is a concern to some users, as they don't
want to install packages that fail tests or have their installs stopped by the
error. The users who are effected should really file upstream bug reports with
the package maintainers and inform them that the the package doesn't pass tests
or that the tests are out of date. You really shouldn't use maketest globally if
you are willing to install packages that fail anyways.

I still disagree with the way this bug was resolved; nevertheless, this one's dead.
