Since we got to work jam on the Cray, found an optimizer bug when
compiling regex with -O3 that we will report to Cray and got regex to
compile at -O2, I am now running the regression tests.
While they are running I want to ask a question about building and post
a patch/question about running the rgeression tests.
First the (maybe stupid) question: how can I disable the building of
shared libraries when using bjam? Shared libraries do not seem to exist
on the vector-Crays and I would like to disable them, instead of
getting build failures.
Next, the changes I had to make to boost/tools/regression/run_tests.sh.
Besides the obvious toolset and path changes (the first three), I had
to make three more changes:
diff -r1.3 run_tests.sh
--- > boost_root=$HOME/boost 35c35 < test_tools=gcc --- > test_tools=cray 42c42 < toolset=gcc --- > toolset=cray 96c96 < if test $cvs_update == yes ; then --- > if test $cvs_update = yes ; then 113c113 < LOCATE_TARGET=bin sh ./build.sh --- > LOCATE_TARGET=bin sh ./build.sh cc 150c150 < cat regress.log | $process_jam_log --- > cat regress.log | $process_jam_log $boost_root The fourth change: test $cvs_update == yes ---> test $cvs_update = yes seems to be needed for all platform, although the GNU version of test actually accepts == in addition to = The fifth change is needed, to use the cc toolset instead of gcc. Is there an easy way to specify that without changing the shell script? Finally, I wonder why I need the sixth change. How does this work on other platforms? Is there an easier fix? Best regards, Matthias
