[Libreoffice-qa] Bibisect Requests

Hi All -

Seems like the request for bibisects is growing quickly which is awesome - but we need to keep up with those requests :).


If you have some time to poke: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/HowToBibisect#Finding_bugs_needing_bibisect

I think we've seen incredible results from properly and quickly bibisected bugs (devs seem to jump onto them quickly if we tackle them quickly).


All and any efforts much appreciated as always.


Thanks so much everyone!


Best,
Joel

On the topic:

I've put together a bibisect for MacOSX covering the 5.0 epoch
git://gerrit.libreoffice.org//bibisect-macosx-64-5.0
it is ~9GB  for 8326 build (debug-build)

It is up-to-date to within less than a week

I've also put together a 'sample of a bibisect for Windows
git://gerrit.libreoffice.org/bibisect-win32-5.0
about 400MB

it contains 500 build from the beginning of the 5.0 epoch, but I'd
like some feed-back to make sure it is useable/works
before committing more resource to it.

Norbert

it of course works locally here.. and I cloned it on a windows 2012 r2
and it worked there...
humm... the usual message is "The _system_ cannot find the file specified"
is it that that you are seeing:
http://www.drivethelife.com/windows-drivers/how-to-fix-the-system-cannot-find-the-file-specified.html
?
if so check for permission... and possibly:
start a console, cd to where soffice.exe is and run soffice.exe there

that does not work here either (same error). I do not think that is
expected to work.

Absolutely no ideas... but there is a bootstrap.ini, maybe that serve
the same purpose on Windows ?
but surely one would hope that one does not have to tweak it to run,
that would make using bibisect quite cumbersome

Thanks for the feedback.
I was concerned about something like that, hence the test run...
I am not a windows user.. I have no ideas about what things should
look like, and very little idea how to debug that things, beyond what
google says.
I just worked based on the hypothesis that instdir was runnable and
transportable...

It works for me, too, on Windows 7. I cloned the repo from cygwin with
git version 2.1.1, and I can start soffice.exe either from the
console, or from Explorer. Thanks for this Windows repo, it will be
very useful.

Regards,
Andras

The message is indeed as you say.

I have cloned again, this time directly onto the machine where I am
trying to run, and things seem to be working.

bootstrap.ini indeed.  The "rc" bit was a hangover from my Linux
experiences.  Still, it seems to be the fresh `git clone` which
creates the file.

Only if the bug requires particular user options, like macro security
level or system dialogs or some such.

ok so based on your test and Andrea's.... I'll build the other 8400
commit that need
building for that repo...
