Description Sebastian Kühn 2011-01-29 20:05:54 UTC
I've mounted a disk at /home/sebastian/Archive while /home/sebastian is not accessible by anyone except the user sebastian.
The test ls/readdir-mountpoint-inode fails with
ls: cannot open directory /home/sebastian: Permission denied

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a directory not accessible by the portage user
2. mount something within this directory
3. run tests as portage user (emerge package)

Actual Results:  
tests/ls/readdir-mountpoint-inode fails

Expected Results:  
tests/ls/readdir-mountpoint-inode skips this mount point
and succeeds

Proposed fix for readdir-mountpoint-inode

Check the return value of the ls call and fail the test with 77 (as checked by the caller; I'm not sure why 77)

    sys-apps/coreutils: Rev bump to address multiple test failures
    - Running test suite with FEATURES=usersandbox is no longer supported
      due to various sandbox issues. (bug #413621, #439574, #629660)
    - Due to sandbox failures previously disabled tests
      re-enabled. (bug #415487)
    - tests/ls/readdir-mountpoint-inode test failure fixed. (bug #353164)
    - "caps" USE flag description more specified. (bug #617702
    - Tools/programs/libraries used in test suite now listed in
      DEPEND="test? (...)" which requires re-keywording for some
