Re: [eigen] Improved dashboard submissions...

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]

It is not really working over here.

Typing "nmake experimental" does not build the tests but it just tries
to run them. The same is true for the visual studio generators - it
does not build the test and just tries to run them.

For nmake the following works (assuming we had just a single test 'meta')

nmake meta
nmake experimental

Using ctest does not help either - again, the tests are not being build.

I spammed the dashboard a bit, just for testing purposes.

.... and today's dashboard does again show what I am talking about with
the submissions from machine "I0009939-X64".
