This test case tests MySQL database server using upstream test suite. Some tests are known to fail on one or more architectures and users can skip them using --skip-test-list option. Those tests are listed in rh-skipped-tests.list and documentation about the reasons for omitting such tests can be found in that file.


  1. Ensure that Package-x-generic-16.pngmysql-server, Package-x-generic-16.pngmysql, Package-x-generic-16.pngmysql-libs packages are installed.

How to test

  1. Switch to root user: su -
  2. Install MySQL test suite: yum -y install mysql-test
  3. Start MySQL server: service mysqld start
  4. Go to the mysql-test directory: cd /usr/share/mysql-test/
  5. Run MySQL test suite under mysql user: sudo -u mysql ./mysql-test-run --skip-test-list rh-skipped-tests.list
  6. Wait until the tests finish.

Expected Results

  1. The test-suite should finish without error, some tests might be disabled or skipped.
