[Debichem-devel] Bug#730701: espresso: generation of vdW_kernel_table takes a long time without any progress

Package: espresso
Version: 5.0.2-1
Severity: wishlist

The PW testsuite includes three vdw tests, two of which require the
vdW_kernel_table file to be generated, which takes around 10 minutes on
my Thinkpad T400:

|Checking vdw...passed
| Generating kernel table - May take several minutes...kernel table
|generated in /«PKGBUILDDIR»/pseudo//vdW_kernel_table
|Checking vdw1...passed

10 minutes is long, but apparently it times out on armel after 10

This data file is shipped in quantum-espresso-data, so not generating it
is not an option, but maybe the test-driver script could generate it in
the background and output some keepalive ping every couple of minutes so
that sbuild does not think it is stuck.
