The latest release of the LSB-VSTHlite test suite for partial coverage of the pthreads aspects of the Linux Standard Base is now available for download from:
This version of the VSTHlite has been setup to autoconfigure on Linux systems. A front end script install.sh is used to auto install, setup and run the test suite. In theory this should allow running of the test suite by those unfamiliar with POSIX.1 and its myriad of options and thus the associated test suite configurables.
The release notes follow below.
If you encounter a problem in the suite, please send in a bug report directly to me at ajosey(:at:)opengroup(dot)org, cc lsb-test(:at:)linuxbase.org, please include the test output together with any suggested fixes. Please include the following subject line in your message
Subject: BUG in LSB-VSTHlite (testcase-name-here)
If possible include the assertion reference number.

The Open Group LSB-VSTHlite Release 1.0 Release Notes This document provides Release notes for the Verification suite for the partial POSIX threads coverage for the Linux Standard Base. 1. Release Overview LSB-VSTHlite 1.0-1 is a beta release of this test suite for partial POSIX threads test coverage for the Linux Standard Base. LSB-VSTHlite is built using the VSXgen (the generic VSX test framework). The test coverage corresponds approximately half of the complete VSTH test suite from The Open Group. This test suite has not yet been formally approved by the Linux Standard Base team and no claims should be made of LSB conformance to this version of the test suite. The test assertions being tested are included with the distribution in the MAN/tset directory. This release is targeted for testing the LSB 2.x specification release series and is not for use with LSB 1.3 or earlier. 1.1 Changes since the last release The following changes have been made since the last release: Use of sigismember for sigset_t comparisons rather than memcmp Default Parameter changes for tetexec.cfg Corrections to sysconf test case The header file tests are omitted from the default scenario since they are development environment tests and not part of the lsb-runtime test scenario. The TET version bundled with this release is updated to TET3.6. 1.2 Status To install the test suite unwind the test files into /home/tet and as root run the install.sh command sh ./install.sh This will then prompt you for installation, accepting all the defaults should work on most systems. If you wish to test POSIX rather than LSB then you must select POSIX96 test mode, and unset the LSB_TEST variable in TESTROOT/tetexec.cfg. 2. Release Contents The release consists of the following files. README.LSB-VSX2.0 A Readme file lsb-vsthlite-relnote.txt Release notes lts_vsthlite1.0a.tgz The source code to the suite in gzip'd tar format README A generic README file install.sh The installation wrapper script tet_vsxgen_3.01.tgz The generic TET/VSXgen framework 3. TET LSB-VSX runs under TET3 (The Test Environment Toolkit test framework). A suitable version of TET3 is bundled with the release. The latest release can also be obtained at: ftp://ftp.rdg.opengroup.org/pub/TET3/ TET3 must be configured to build as the Lite version . Do not use the Distributed version. For more information on TET , see http://tetworks.opengroup.org . 4. Documentation See the README file for instructions to install, configure and execute the tests. For more in depth information consult the User's Guide which provides comprehensive information on the installation, configuration and use of this test suite. 5. Support Support related questions and problem reports should be directed to by email to lsb-test:linuxbase.org. 6. Size The size of LSB-VSTHLITE when the suite is built is approximately 15MB. The size of the compressed distribution is roughly 1.5 MB. When running the complete test suite, journal files will be produced that are typically less than 1MB in length, so its recommended that at least 20MB of disk space be allowed for a test campaign. 7. Time The test suite takes approximately 30 minutes to run depending on the speed of the platform under test. Licensing information.
