(This is the second part of a two-part announcement.)
New Version of
We’ve pushed a new version of
test161, tool that you will be using this semester to help test your solutions and for submitting them. Please update to the latest version – 1.3.0 – using
Note: This change depends on the upstream
OS/161 changes, so please be sure merge them first.
For those not familiar with updating packages on Ubuntu, to upgrade only
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install test161
And, to upgrade all packages:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade
After updating, please run
test161 version and verify that the version is 1.3.0.
Get Familiar with
You should start familiarizing yourself with how to run tests using
test161. At this point, you should have some experience running tests with
sys161, and the
test161 docs should hopefully make sense now. Feel free to post questions in the test161 category if something is not clear, but please, start by reading the documentation.
All of the tests except for reader/writer lock tests are provided with the base source code, and using
test161 will give you and idea of how well you will do overall on the assignment. For ASST2 and ASST3, all of the tests we use for grading are provided.
Getting Ready to Submit
We’ll be opening the server up for ASST1 submissions in the next couple of days, and will announce when we do. Before you can submit, there is some configuration you’ll need to do. These steps are explained in Section 3 in the
test161 documentation, and will be covered in recitation next week.
Good luck on ASST1!
