Travis recently added build hosts for arm64, ppc64le and s390x, so this is a welcome addition to our Travis testing matrix.
Unfortunately, the builds are running in quite restricted LXD containers there, for example it is not possible to create huge files there (even if they are just sparse), and certain system calls are blocked. So we have to change some tests first to stop them failing in such environments. v2: - Added "make check-tcg" and Alex' patch to disable cross-containers - Explicitely set "dist: xenial" for arm64 and ppc64le since some iotests are crashing on bionic on these hosts. - Dropped "libcap-dev" from the package list since it will be replaced by libcapng-dev soon. Alex Bennée (1): configure: allow disable of cross compilation containers Thomas Huth (6): iotests: Provide a function for checking the creation of huge files iotests: Skip test 060 if it is not possible to create large files iotests: Skip test 079 if it is not possible to create large files tests/hd-geo-test: Skip test when images can not be created tests/test-util-filemonitor: Skip test on non-x86 Travis containers travis.yml: Enable builds on arm64, ppc64le and s390x .travis.yml | 86 +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ configure | 8 +++- tests/hd-geo-test.c | 12 ++++- tests/qemu-iotests/005 | 5 +- tests/qemu-iotests/060 | 3 ++ tests/qemu-iotests/079 | 3 ++ tests/qemu-iotests/220 | 6 +-- tests/qemu-iotests/common.rc | 10 ++++ tests/tcg/configure.sh | 6 ++- tests/test-util-filemonitor.c | 11 +++++ 10 files changed, 138 insertions(+), 12 deletions(-) -- 2.18.1
