Re: anita tests timing out

Yes, it is the global 2-hour timeout that is triggering failures in my test-bed.

I'm not sure what time-out is being used on the NetBSD official test-beds.

2011-11-19 18:50:05.

Between those two time-stamps there were 160 files updated, including
the rng stuff.

One tricky thing about /dev/random is that /dev/random blocks if there
is no entropy, so some tests could well be blocking even though there is
nothing wrong with the new code.

It would be nice to have a way for atf to consider each test that times
out failed but still finish.  Or maybe the problem is that so many time
out that a global timeout is hit.
