The make check command
make check. This will compile and execute the unit
tests. If everything is OK, you should see something like this:
============================================================================ Testsuite summary for syslog-ng 3.8.0alpha0 ============================================================================ # TOTAL: 82 # PASS: 82 # SKIP: 0 # XFAIL: 0 # FAIL: 0 # XPASS: 0 # ERROR: 0 ============================================================================
If something goes wrong, check the logs of the tests (
test-suite.log). You can debug
the failing unit test with a debugger.
The make distcheck command
make distcheck command is very similar to
make check, but it also ensures that
the distribution tarball can be properly used.
