Test died: timeout hit on during await_install at opensuse/tests/installation/
It seems that the timeout for the installation has to be increased, as it fails sporadically in Leap 15.3 Updates


openQA test in scenario opensuse-15.3-DVD-Updates-x86_64-gnome@uefi fails in

Test suite description

#3 Updated by oorlov about 1 year ago

I added TIMEOUT_SCALE=3 to the test suite, which should give installer more time until timeout failure. So, what is remaining is to gather statistics, if it is still failing or not.

We should print the timeout that is set in await_install. Please, make a PR with this change.

So, after the timeout was increased, there were no failures anymore. So, I assume this ticket can be closed.

Regarding the advice that we added during refinement (to log the timeout), I checked the test module and it is logged already with diag("left total await_install timeout: $timeout"); in a loop of waiting. So this logging do even more then just stating initial timeout, it also logs how much time is left after each iteration. I guess it is enough for debugging purposes.
