./sysutils/memtester, Utility for testing the memory subsystem for faults

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 4.5.0, Package name: memtester-4.5.0, Maintainer: schmonz

memtest is a utility for testing the memory subsystem in a computer
to determine if it is faulty. The original source was by Simon
Kirby <sim@stormix.com>. Charles Cazabon has by this time completely
rewritten the original source, and added many additional tests to
help catch borderline memory. He also rewrote the original tests
(which catch mainly memory bits which are stuck permanently high
or low) so that they run approximately an order of magnitude faster.

Log message:
Update to 4.5.0. From the changelog:

- add note to README about problems with HP/UX prior to v.11.  Change code
  so that buffer still gets aligned even if you comment out the use of mlock()
  on such a platform.  Thanks: Keith Monahan.
- fix clear-buffer using incorrect param, causing spurious test failures.
  Thanks: Debin Dong.
- fix shell-ism in Makefile.  Thanks: Fabrice Fontaine.

Log message:
Retire 'djbware-errno-hack' and associated options.mk cleverness.

1. Package makefiles including their own options.mk
2. Packages say "SUBST_CLASSES+=djberrno" to get the hack, if needed
3. Packages adjust SUBST_FILES.djberrno, if needed

Should fix bulk build failures due to multiple inclusions of options.mk
and/or incorrect definitions of DJB_ERRNO_HACK.

Approved during the freeze by wiz@.

Log message:
Update to 4.3.0. From the changelog:

- add ability to mmap a device other than /dev/mem, enabling easier
  testing of memory for hardware engineers et al if their system's
  kernel exports the memory they're interested in via /dev/mydevice
  or similar. Thanks: Jean-Noel Avila.

- add ability to run only specified tests by setting the environment
  variable MEMTESTER_TEST_MASK to a bitmask of the indexes of the
  tests to be run. Thanks: Ian Alexander.

Updating this during the freeze as it's a leaf package and the
changes should be low-impact.
