The Linux Test project ltp-20021008 released

Robbie Williamson writes: The Linux Test Project test suite LTP-20021008.tgz has been released.
Visit our website (http://ltp.sourceforge.net) to download the latest
version of the testsuite, and for information on test results on pre-releases,
release candidates & stable releases of the kernel.

There is also a list
of test cases that are expected to fail, please find the list at

The highlights of this release are:

- Updated the STAX LTP driver. You can now specify client and server logging paths.
The ability to define how long a single test is allowed run has been added. Plus,
hardware information is now included in the logs for each client. The HowTo has
been updated as well.

- Updated the Database Opensource Test Suite (DOTS) with added functionality to
allow the use of MySQL and PostreSQL databases, complementing the existing
features that allow the use of DB2, Oracle, and Sybase databases. Additionally,
DOTS is now available as an on-demand test suite at the Open Source Development Lab's
Linux Kernel Scalable Test Platform. (http://www.osdl.org/stp)

- An additional shared memory control test has been added (shmctl04), that tests
the SHM_INFO command.

We encourage the community to post results, patches, or new tests on our
mailing list, and to use the CVS bug tracking facility to report problems that
you might encounter. More details available at our web-site.
