Subject: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH] test: make multiprocess launch error more informative
Date: Fri, 12 Jul 2019 17:02:05 +0100
Message-ID: <1a51612a8bd6b6f359aec9b0072f8763cd59cb6c.1562947317.git.anatoly.burakov@intel.com> (raw)

Currently, if there is no procfs mounted, test application will
fail to run any multiprocess-related autotests (EAL flags etc.)
without a clear explanation as to why this happens.

Add a check specifically for that condition, as well as add a
general stringified error message to rte_panic.
