action #9716: livecdreboot - rename and tidy
bootmenu/grub2 timeout expire before needle matching
|Category:||Bugs in existing tests|
|Target version:||openQA Project - Milestone 1|
openqa needles matching at the moment on grub2 boot (timeout 8 sec.) is to slow comparing to 8 seconds for grub.
The result is that needle will not found, because timeout has expired, or we don't go on boot-read-only-snapshot.
At the moment we have many needles that are potential candidates;
My suggestions are:
- clean up needles. ( i don't see a stable solution, because needles could grow in future and we will have same issue.
- stop the grub2 timeout, only for the reboot_after_install/first boot test.
- modify the api or adapt this test in a special way for this.

Send 'up' key in order to prevent grub2 timeout before boot_snapshot entry found
dmaiocchi changed the 'up' to 'esc' but seems to still work ;-)
