The LSB-FHS test suite has been successfully integrated into the LSB Runtime test suite available from the Free Standards Group.

This version of the LSB-FHS has been setup to autoconfigure on Linux systems. A front end script 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 configuring the test suites.

This test suite uses the Test Environment Toolkit, for more information see the web site.

The process for developing the test suite is described here.
