Until recently, using TryChooser with -p macosx would give you working OS X 10.5 builds & test runs.

However, now that the OS X requirement on trunk has been raised to 10.6 [1], any Try runs based on trunk need to use -p macosx64 (ie 10.6/10.7) rather than -p macosx or your test runs will be:
a) hidden by default (&noignore=1 to show)
b) failing with "TEST-UNEXPECTED-FAIL | automation.py | Exited with code -6 during test run"

Using '-p all' will work just as before.

Posting this to dev.platform, since this caught a few people out before the 10.5 tests were hidden on try (bug 775729) - and there still be others who have -p macosx in scripts/trychooser mqs.

Best wishes,

Ed

So we are not running any 32 bit tests anymore? Should we reuse 'macox'
to run the 32 bit debug build on a 10.6 machine?

I don't believe so.

I'll leave the decision of whether they are still useful to someone else; but we'd need to use something other than 'macox' on TryChooser, since we'll be needing 10.5 Try builds for testing aurora/beta/esr pushes for a bit longer yet.

Best,

Can we update http://trychooser.pub.build.mozilla.org/ to not offer
macosx, or to highlight that it is broken?

The page does already state they are for 10.5 builds, but I've filed a bug to get it changed to mention broken/EOL on trunk:
