Hmm. I use BB quite a lot, and I never had this problem. If you look
in the "bbrun" shell script, you'll see a loop with something like:
This, obviously, is the main loop for each of the BB testing programs.
You could put some debugging code in between the "$1" and the sleep
statements to see what's going on; whether things are run successfully,
I suggest something like:
echo "DEBUG : In bbrun - just ran $1 - return code was $?"
echo "DEBUG : Sleeping for $BBSLEEP seconds"
done >> /tmp/BBDEBUG.$$ 2>&1
then look at /tmp/BBDEBUG to see if anything odd is going on. If you
don't see anything in this file at all, then it means that bbrun isn't
being run at all. If the return code is anything other than zero, it
means that the test programs aren't succeeding, and you should probably
check your BB setup (might be a permissions thing).
Apart from that, I can't really suggest anything except "reinstall it?"
