Hey Matthew,

I'm thrilled that you are trying to get a test Linux box up!

The easiest way to run that depends on whether you're using cmake/ninja or
configure/make.  If you don't have a strong preference, going with
cmake/ninja is definitely the faster way to go.

In any event, you'll want to kick off the tests with either one of these,
after you've done a full build (i.e. 'ninja' in the build dir or 'make' in
the build dir):

cd /your/build/dir
ninja check-lldb

cd /your/llvm/dir
cd tools/lldb/test

Both those incantations will get you a test run that does the tests without
you needing to set up anything else (e.g. lldb/python paths, or
architecture settings for the test run).  They'll also run the tests faster
if you have multiple cores on your dev box/VM.

Let me know if you hit any trouble with that.  Particularly the cmake
configuration line - the basic cmake configuration line with minimal
options has never worked well for me on Linux, so I call it with a bunch of
flags to specify the llvm build type and a few other details.
