  1. Investigate a Ticket

Task Description

Directions for Students

Before taking and attempting this task, you should first complete a HelloWorld task.

You should have been given a ticket number for a specific ticket (bug) to investigate. If the bug has no existing test case then implement a new test case within an appropriate subdirectory of testsuites and submit the patches to the ticket on Trac. If the bug affects functionality that is already tested by an existing test case, then extend that test case to check for the conditions of the reported bug (if the test for the bug does not exist).

If the bug has already been fixed make a comment on the ticket to that effect.

If the bug has a fix you can implement, then write the fix and attach any patches to the ticket on RTEMS Trac.

If the bug is not fixed and is beyond your abilities, then write a brief report describing the bug behavior and possible fixes. Submit the report as a comment on the ticket.

Fill in an entry to the table below with the ticket you investigated, and any follow-up needed.
