This is a list of Linux applications which are being used to test linux(4) on amd64 under 13-STABLE and 14-CURRENT, usually within a Ubuntu chroot. In general it includes larger pieces of code, preferably ones with a test suite available. "Small items", like Linux bash, git, ls, grep, or gcc binaries, probably don't need to be included, unless they don't work, in which case they definitely should. General rule: if it doesn't work it should be on the list. Unless it's a Steam game; please see https://github.com/shkhln/linuxulator-steam-utils/wiki/Compatibility for these.

amd64

Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS

Works

Logs warnings about innodb_use_native_aio not being supported (missing io_setup(2)) and being unable to set thread nice (probably because Linux syscalls.master simply calls native setpriority(2), which doesn't look up Linux TIDs)

Memcached

memcached-1.5.6-0ubuntu1.2

amd64

Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS

Broken

After running ./mc-crusher conf/loadconf and ^C-ing it, memcached seems to enter an infinite loop, which seems to be caused by epoll_wait(2) returning 1, despite not having any open client connections

amd64

Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS

Works

Seems to work fine, apart from a "Error checking directory '/sys/block': No such file or directory" in logs

Node.js

nodejs-8.10.0~dfsg-2ubuntu0.4

amd64

Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS

amd64

Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS

Works

Oracle

oracle-database-xe-18c-1.0-1.x86_64.rpm

amd64

Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS

Broken

RPM scripts require temporarily replacing /bin/sh with a symlink to bash; to work around TNS-01198 add VALID_NODE_CHECKING_REGISTRATION_LISTENER = OFF to /opt/oracle/product/18c/dbhomeXE/network/admin/listener.ora; filesystem permission problems, possibly caused by BSD directory group id semantics - use chgrp -R 0 /opt/oracle/ as a workaround; /etc/init.d/oracle-xe-18c  configure eventually fails anyway with "Unable to check available shared memory" for reasons unknown

PostgreSQL

postgresql-12.3

amd64

Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS

Works fine

Works

11 test failures, one hang; to test: apt install libpython3.6-testsuite && python3.6 -m test -vW -x test_socket; you will probably need to install missing Python modules as needed; see https://docs.python.org/3/library/test.html
