Issue #7311 has been updated by vo.x (Vit Ondruch).


It is not just test suite issue. See 0001-Fallback-to-localhost-if-hostname-is-not-associated-.patch

Although it is pretty minor issue, due to other bugs in Gnome 3, it forces me to reboot quite often :/ But anyway, it is not blocker.

Bug #7311: DRb test suite fails when hostname cannot be reached

=begin
I have set following hostname:

 $ hostname
 dhcp-25-70

However, it cannot be reached:

 $ ping `hostname`
 PING dhcp-25-70 (10.34.25.70) 56(84) bytes of data.
 From dhcp-25-1 (10.34.25.1) icmp_seq=1 Destination Host Unreachable
 From dhcp-25-1 (10.34.25.1) icmp_seq=2 Destination Host Unreachable
 From dhcp-25-1 (10.34.25.1) icmp_seq=3 Destination Host Unreachable
 From dhcp-25-1 (10.34.25.1) icmp_seq=4 Destination Host Unreachable

This causes that the DRb test suite fails:

So there are two possible ways how to fix this issue.

(1) Enforce usage of localhost in test suite (0001-Enforce-localhost-for-DRb-tests.patch). Unfortunately it appears it does not solve my issues completely under some (not so clear) circumstances.
(2) Detect if hostname is associated with some IP??address of my computer, otherwise fallback to localhost (0001-Fallback-to-localhost-if-hostname-is-not-associated-.patch). This resolves my issue completely.


BTW this test error later causes deadlock in TestProcess test suite [1], which is nasty :/
