This is a break-out of the multi-issue #2048.

Original poster Atro Tossavainen (atossava) reports:Building and testing
on Solaris 8 on SPARC with Sun compilers:
cc: Sun C 5.8 2005/10/13
CC: Sun C++ 5.8 2005/10/13

281 tests OK.
40 tests skipped:
    test_aepack test_al test_applesingle test_bsddb test_bsddb185
    test_bsddb3 test_cd test_cl test_codecmaps_cn test_codecmaps_hk
    test_codecmaps_jp test_codecmaps_kr test_codecmaps_tw test_ctypes
    test_curses test_gdbm test_gl test_imgfile test_linuxaudiodev
    test_macfs test_macostools test_nis test_normalization
    test_ossaudiodev test_pep277 test_plistlib test_scriptpackages
    test_socket_ssl test_socketserver test_sqlite test_startfile
    test_sunaudiodev test_tcl test_timeout test_unicode_file
    test_urllib2net test_urllibnet test_winreg test_winsound
4 skips unexpected on sunos5:
    test_tcl test_sunaudiodev test_ctypes test_nis

test_tcl skipped -- No module named _tkinter

I have applied the _ctypes patch in #1516, however.  What gives?

Martin v. Löwis (loewis) replies:

What is the specific problem that you are reporting?
I.e. what behavior did you expect instead?
msg63968 - (view) Author: Sean Reifschneider (jafo) * (Python committer) Date: 2008-03-18 19:16
This is me:

Martin: I believe the report is that the user followed #1516 but ctypes
was not built, or at least the test was skipped.

Assigning to theller, because that's whom #1516 is assigned to.

Does this apply to any current version?

Funny you should ask, I've just started building Python 2.6.5 yesterday.
I should know in a bit.

To late to change 2.6 (except for critical bugs). You should test 2.7 instead.

Well, with release-2.7 test_ctypes segfaults om OpenSolaris:

make: *** [test] Segmentation Fault (core dumped)
./python -Wd -3 -E -tt ./Lib/test/ -l 
== CPython 2.7.0+ (release27-maint:82854, Jul 13 2010, 19:49:12) [C]
==   Solaris-2.11-i86pc-i386-32bit-ELF little-endian
==   /export/home/stefan/svn/release27-maint/build/test_python_768

Perhaps this should be a new issue though.

I doubt it matters much. ctypes and Solaris do not get along well together.

As I understand, this report was about test_ctypes being skipped. This
is not the case anymore, so I agree that setting the issue to pending
is fine. I can open another issue for the segfault.

This seems really out of date now. Closing.
