Description Jeroen Roovers (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-11-23 18:00:52 UTC
src_test() {
    einfo "Tests do not run in sandbox, they need mit-krb5 to be already installed to test it."

I don't get this. I assume that, with the above output, it knows I initially had FEATURES=sandbox and that the same version wasn't yet installed. So I emerged it again with FEATURES=-sandbox, assuming the test suite would now be run. That's when I looked at the ebuild and found the above.

You could look at what other packages do, like imagemagick, to work around the install-before-test problem, and you could perhaps run the test suite regardless of FEATURES=sandbox and just warn that it might fail.

That work around predates me.  I'll see what I can do.  Thanks for the pointers.

+*mit-krb5-1.9_beta1 (24 Nov 2010)
+  24 Nov 2010; Eray Aslan <> +mit-krb5-1.9_beta1.ebuild,
+  metadata.xml:
+  Version bump. Dropped m68k bug #324087. Working test suite bug #346549.
+  Added test and pkinit USE flags.

Will also add a working test suite to mit-krb5-1.8 branch if/when there is a bump (patch is ready).  Thanks again.
