Sorry, I've got no idea what failed there. I haven't seen this myself.
It's not relevant to testing anyway.

I need some guidance on commands that I should run for testing.

With the instrument plugged in, first try running "spotread -?", and check
that the Spyder 3 is listed in the available instruments of the usage.
You could then try "spotread -yl" or something like "dispcal -v -yl -R test"
(assuming you have an LCD display), and see how it goes.

If you get complaints about permissions, you will need to sort through
the usual USB permissions jungle. See the Argyll documentation in
the installation section.

From there on, consult the "scenarios" section and the detailed tool entries.
