Comment (by fo):

 Replying to [comment:4 Krejzi]:
 > First of all, you should NEVER run tests via ssh. Test should be ran
 from a local session.

 I did not know, that. Most tests I run pass, using ssh. Today, they dis
 for wget. Why is it?

 > Second, any library depending on Mesa (libGL, libGLESv2, libEGL) require
 working DRI installation at runtime (and running tests = runtime) and that
 means that X server should be running locally with DRI2 enabled and at
 least OGL 3.0 for all tests to pass. Check glxinfo output for OpenGL
 version string or see an example on the Xorg Configuration page. It worked
 fine on my sandybridge system when I tried it last time.

 It is the first thing I do, when I finish xorg or reinstall mesa:

 $ glxinfo | egrep "(OpenGL vendor|OpenGL renderer|OpenGL version)"
 OpenGL vendor string: VMware, Inc.
 OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on SVGA3D; build: RELEASE;
 OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 10.0.1

 Could it be a problem there?

 > Third, but not related. I believe that running tests is a waste of time.
 They are not called "regression tests" without a reason. It could mean
 it's there for developer to check if he/she broke something with some new
 changes. Just take GCC test suite for example, for every fix there's a
 regression test so that DEVELOPER can't introduce the bug AGAIN. If you
 break something as an user, you'll know soon enough :)

 Right. I reached similar conclusions years ago, and stopped to run tests.
 Now, I do only for the book, because this is what is there.

 I did upgrade my vmplayer, but not the vmtools. The machine was not
 working fine,

 But Bruce and, I think, others, think the tests should be run.
 Furthermore, either we get the test instructions off of the book, or try
 to make them work as we can, or tell that the do not run. I don't think we
 can just ignore, without a discussion.

 Personally, I hate tests.
