Prevent gstpoll test from hanging up (1.73 KB, patch)

Description LRN 2013-04-09 07:13:55 UTC
gstpoll test does polling on a fd with GST_TIME_NONE (that is, forever).
Since polling pipes doesn't work on W32, the test hangs up.

Prevent gstpoll test from hanging up
Comment 2 Tim-Philipp Müller 2013-04-09 09:01:24 UTC
So the patch just makes it fail faster or more gracefully?
Comment 3 LRN 2013-04-09 09:04:13 UTC
The patch makes it time out, and it fails later, when it checks the results of waiting.
Without the patch it just hangs up forever, until you kill it.
Comment 4 Sebastian Dröge (slomo) 2013-04-09 18:05:03 UTC
So if polling pipes does not work on Windows, shouldn't this test be disabled for Windows or rewritten using sockets?
Comment 5 LRN 2013-04-09 23:38:00 UTC
Mark it as XFAIL (on W32 only), i guess.

    tests: skip all GstPoll tests on Windows
    As they don't work there, and it's non-trivial to fix.
