#7548 new defect

target path not taken into account

Reported by: michael.kostylev Owned by:
Priority: minor Component: fate
Version: git-master Keywords:
Cc: Blocked By:
Blocking: Reproduced by developer: no
Analyzed by developer: no


Summary of the bug:
When running FATE some output files may be created on a remote side using a relative path (as usual, with an IO error). The issue affects hundreds of tests.

How to reproduce:
Configure and build for remote testing, run an affected test:

% make V=2 fate-ws_snd
TEST    ws_snd

tests/data/fate/ws_snd.out as an output file has no sense, it should be prefixed by the target path.

A possible workaround is to use a script that would fix the cwd on a remote side. This is how FATE worked in the early days.

Some random comments:
The aix targets (should) need --extra-cflags=-mminimal-toc, this is supposed to have no speed impact, please remove arch from as many tests as possible, it is only needed for cross-compilation, has no effect (and is misleading) for 32-bit compilation on x86-64 and if it had an effect ppc would be wrong for -maix64.
The valgrind targets need --disable-stripping to be useful.
Compilation on Solaris is currently broken: If you cannot replace /usr/xpg4/bin/sed, you have to replace the first sed -E in configure with /opt/csw/gnu/sed -E (this is ticket #7310).

Somebody else will have to comment on the Windows issues.

I hadn't realized so far that the rv20-1239 failure on aix is identical to the rv20-1239 failure seen with some compilers on Linux ppc (like gcc-4.9 but not gcc-5.5 on 64bit ppc but gcc-5.5 and not gcc-4.9 on 32bit ppc)...

The message is so useful that I would expect to read something like this in the documentation, if the path handling cannot be fixed in the code.

The dnxhd issues on 32bit aix can be solved with --extra-ldflags='-Wl,-bmaxdata:0x80000000'
