Magma tests failed on Windows XP

Toedter, Hartwig

Hello,

 

I loaded Magma into my Pharo 1.2.1 image using the script “Pharo1.1.2-load-magma.st” (on the web site named Pharo1.2-load-magma.st) on Windows XP.

 

After running the script I tried to verify the installation with running “MagmaTestCase fullSuite maDebug” from a Workspace. This ended with an error (se the attached debug log).

 

My short analysis was, that the class ExternalWindowsOSProcess is not suitable for the tests. Which means the tests won’t run under Windows XP.

 

Does that further mean Magma won’t run under Windows XP?

 

Best regards,

Hartwig Tödter

Thanks for reporting Hartwig.  Do you happen to have
OSProcessPlugin.dll in your squeak vm directory?  If not, but are able
to compile a C program on Windows, this mail from Eliot might help you
generate the C source-code which can then be compiled into a working
Plugin which you can drop into your vm directory.

As well, the latest cogwin.zip at:

   http://www.mirandabanda.org/files/Cog/VM/VM.r2459/

includes the plugin binary - but I don't know if that problem will be fixed.

I know this has been a problem for a some time - I have just contacted
the author of OSProcess and asked for assistance.

Magma itself does not use OSProcess - only the test-suite does to
auto-launch the other squeak images which are only used as players in
a network-based test-suite.

Magma is fully-functional on Linux today but I have not run Magma
full-time in Windows for several years.  However I do expect it to
work completely and correctly (as well as on the Mac).  But until we
can run the test-suite on those platforms, we can't be sure, right?

Hi, that would be me :)

OSProcess on Windows has only minimal functionality, so the portions
of the test suite that use OSProcess for launching other squeak images
may not work on Windows at all. Certainly #forkSqueak will not work
on Windows, and anything that involves communicating between the
squeak images through pipes is not going to work.

I don't know the specifics of how OSProcess is being used in the
Magma tests, but if it relies on OSProcess features that are not
present on Windows (very likely), then I can suggest the ProcessWrapper
package on SqueakSource as a possible alternative for implementing
the tests on Windows.

Note, I am traveling and cannot look at any Squeak or Magma code at
the moment, so apologies for the rather vague response here.

HTH,
Dave
