[blfs-dev] OpenJPEG-2.1.0 tests are broken

There are many problems.

First, following book's instructions, 14 tests passed, out of 565 (about

Then, found in the INSTALL file (reformatted by me):

* To enable testing (and automatic result upload to
* http://my.cdash.org/index.php?project=OPENJPEG):
    make Experimental
  Note : JPEG2000 test files are available with 'svn checkout
  http://openjpeg.googlecode.com/svn/data' (about 70 Mo).
  If '-DOPJ_DATA_ROOT:PATH' option is omitted, test files will be
  automatically searched in '${CMAKE_SOURCE_DIR}/../data', corresponding
  to the location of the data directory when compiling from the trunk
  (and assuming the data directory has been checked out of course).

The 70 Mo is an exagerated understatement. Worse yet, their svn
connection is extremely slow I downloaded 1018MB in (real)	116m52.370s!!!!

Finally, could run again the tests (didn't time or log it).

mkdir -v build &&
cd       build &&

cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release \
      -DOPJ_DATA_ROOT=../data \

time make -j8

make -j1 test

Results below are "copy/paste" from the terminal:

89% tests passed, 93 tests failed out of 814

Total Test time (real) = 113.93 sec

So, tests increased from 565 to 814, but still over 10% failed.

I'm thinking that these tests are for OJPG developers, only, not really
intended for us.

Therefore, we could just state in the page that the package does not
come with a test suite, or useful ts or working ts.

Please, opinions?
