[PATCH nft] tests: shell: $NFT needs to be invoked unquoted

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


The variable has to undergo word splitting, otherwise the shell tries
to find the variable value as an executable, which breaks in cases that
7c8a44b25c22 ("tests: shell: Allow wrappers to be passed as nft command")
intends to support.

Mention this in the shell tests README.

Fixes: d8ccad2a2b73 ("tests: cover baecd1cf2685 ("segtree: Fix segfault when restoring a huge interval set")")

The test I added (0068) is the only problematic occurrence.

This would be best applied on top of the README series (otherwise
the README still talks about $NFT being a path to a binary).

 You can pass an arbitrary $NFT value as well:
  # NFT=/usr/local/sbin/nft ./run-tests.sh
+Note that, to support usage such as NFT='valgrind nft', tests must
+invoke $NFT unquoted.
 By default, the tests are run with the nft binary at '../../src/nft'
