Description Rolf Eike Beer 2017-10-14 10:09:50 UTC
I don't see any reason for the virtx in CMake tests. I have machines that run the nightly test suite every day, which don't have any X server (a T5120 doesn't even have a monitor plug). When I remove the virtx I can run the testsuite through ebuild also without problems. I don't think there really is any test that requires X, and if it does the virtx usage should probably depend on the "qt5" use flag.

Reproducible: Always
