Hello Victor,

This is the correct place to get help, and I'm sorry for the delay.
Jonathan Hu tried to send you a response last month, but it looks like he
forgot to include you on the recipient list (and instead sent it to only

    No.  Each Trilinos package has its own set of tests.  They are usually
in PACKAGE/test, but there are exceptions, e.g., Tpetra, where the tests
are distributed among different test subdirectories.  If you can't find the
executables, it probably means you didn't enable them at configure time.
You can either enable tests for all packages via


or do it on a per-package basis, e.g.,
