I don't think there's any reason for "make check" to map windows on the running desktop, so why not always running xvfb-run when available ?

Make the `check` rule use xvfb-run, drop `check-no-x`

I see no reason for anyone wanting to see popping windows during
a `make check` run. Closes #12172.

I just found out there's a "check-no-x" Makefile rule. Why not making that the default for "check" ?
Or what's the reason to test against the real X ?

#2 Updated by Sandro Santilli about 5 years ago

As of current master (2.14-pre) I hadn't seen windows popping up on "make check", but there's still a "check-no-x" rule. Was it obsoleted ?

#3 Updated by Sandro Santilli over 4 years ago

I saw the windows again (maybe last time I just didn't have DISPLAY set). So I think I'll push a change having "make check" run the test w/out X... We need to simplify testing IMHO.
