Disable tests during build

Asked by Angel L. Mateo on 2017-11-10


I'm trying to upload a package for a perl library (Net::RabbitMQ).
I have already compiled it in my system and the resulted library works without any problem, but I can't create the package in the launchpad.
The problem is that I have created the package with dh-make-perl and it runs tests during build. But these tests need a rabbitmq server running with a user to make the tests. So the build fails in your servers.
Is there any way I could upload the package configured in a way so tests are skipped during build?

Building locally there is the option to set DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=nocheck to skip tests.
I'm asking for a similar way of doing this in launchpad build.

Since you're using the short debian/rules style with dh, you can add this to the end of that file (with make-style indentation using a tab rather than leading spaces):

# Disable tests, since they need a running RabbitMQ server.

See the dh(1) manual page for more discussion of override rules.

Can you help with this problem?
