Hi Edwin --

You can find the current list of failing tests in the latest bundle-run here:
https://github.com/squeak-smalltalk/squeak-app/runs/4811550256?check_suite_focus=true [https://github.com/squeak-smalltalk/squeak-app/runs/4811550256?check_suite_focus=true]

See "Test image of Squeak64-trunk" and there "Run tests". You can kind of ignore failing STON-Tests. But we should fix those, too.

thanks. I removed the test. on my side

A first question, does it make sense to try to run all the tests after compiling a new version of the VM? 

It is of no use spamming the list if some known tests have issues. If such tests exist, is there a list available.

If it should be of interest, after removing #testOutOfMemory,  I have a core dump, seemingly during the execution of  #testUnwindDebugger.

.I attached the output of the run of the Squeak VM in the attached file abend.txt,

Some more info about the OS:

We should really disable this test in its current form ... it has issues on all platforms.

Some time ago, begin 2020, I managed to build a Squeak 5.0 VM on FreeBSD, based on the sources in the opensmalltalk-vm github repository.
I remember having some difficulties, on the way, but everything got solved, and I still have that version working.

Right now, I built linux64x64  Squeak 5.3 cog spur VM on FreeBSD. There were no compilation errors, no linker errors, So I started squeak, started running the tests in TestRunner, and got the following

[edwin at ottopedi ~/Smalltalk53/opensmalltalk-vm/building/linux64x64/squeak.cog.spur/build]$ ./squeak ../../../../image/Squeak5.3-19431-64bit.image
[edwin at ottopedi ~/Smalltalk53/opensmalltalk-vm/building/linux64x64/squeak.cog.spur/build]$

It looks this happened during the execution of testOutOfMemorySignal.

Are other people here using Squeak 5.3 on FreeBSD?

Should I still build the linux64x64 version for FreeBSD, and, if so, any idea how to find out what is going wrong?

Kind regards,

Edwin Ancaer
