[EP-tech] Failing unit test on RHEL 6

Hi all,
After quite a bit of trial and error I’ve managed to get EPrints tests running on RHEL 6.10 (approximately as described on https://emea01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwiki.eprints.org%2Fw%2FUnit_tests&data=01%7C01%7Ceprints-tech%40ecs.soton.ac.uk%7C154ec1aeec044530763808d62f1a526e%7C4a5378f929f44d3ebe89669d03ada9d8%7C1&sdata=kG%2F%2Fbd%2BfxFhLuN6LiMymURCY9dAPK6ZrtydpflU3BCk%3D&reserved=0) . All tests are now passing, bar one which I can’t find a solution to.

RHEL 6.10
Eprints 3.3.15

This issue has been mentioned before (See the history of Unit_tests page above, or http://threader.ecs.soton.ac.uk/lists/eprints_tech/20860.html and http://threader.ecs.soton.ac.uk/lists/eprints_tech/20996.html) but no solutions are offered to this specific issue.

Error looks like this:

/usr/share/eprints/tests/25_mysql.pl ............. ok
/usr/share/eprints/tests/30_search.pl ............ 12/35
#   Failed test 'compound type field query'
#   at /usr/share/eprints/tests/30_search.pl line 358.

It comes from 30_search.pl, starting at line 347 and going to 359 ($sample_doc is defined on line 85). https://emea01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fgithub.com%2Feprints%2Feprints%2Fblob%2F3.3%2Ftests%2F30_search.pl%23L347&data=01%7C01%7Ceprints-tech%40ecs.soton.ac.uk%7C154ec1aeec044530763808d62f1a526e%7C4a5378f929f44d3ebe89669d03ada9d8%7C1&sdata=bCIyPDY1191vRDYg4twncmJ4vtxESuQ7uso0edhEsGg%3D&reserved=0

$searchexp = EPrints::Search->new(
        session => $session,
        dataset => $sample_doc->dataset,
        satisfy_all => 0 );

        $searchexp->add_field( $sample_doc->dataset->field( "relation" ), "http%3A//eprints.org/relation/islightboxThumbnailVersionOf:/id/document/1<https://emea01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Feprints.org%2Frelation%2FislightboxThumbnailVersionOf%3A%2Fid%2Fdocument%2F1&amp;data=01%7C01%7Ceprints-tech%40ecs.soton.ac.uk%7C154ec1aeec044530763808d62f1a526e%7C4a5378f929f44d3ebe89669d03ada9d8%7C1&amp;sdata=lrauRTqt4Ui48hPMJVfGgltbjREkBq%2Bdsc9xQXW%2FfyI%3D&amp;reserved=0>", "EX" );

        #print STDERR $searchexp->get_conditions->sql( dataset => $sample_doc->dataset, session => $session );

        $list = $searchexp->perform_search;

        ok($list->count > 0, "compound type field query");

I’m guessing the searchexp has broken by the eprints website changing, or its a test that only works internally at eprints services (which results in $list-> count being zero and the test failing).

Before I either comment it out or invest more time in determining the cause (as time permits), is anyone able to offer an insight as to what might be causing this failure?
