Description

Observation

With QEMU 7, the default video resolution was changed to 1280x800
OVMF 202202, which is in Leap 15.4, did the same change: https://github.com/tianocore/edk2/commit/862ea6e83614066efdc2436f3727615ca37d9691
The default "-vga VGA" doesn't appear to be affected for some reason, but at least qxl is: https://openqa.opensuse.org/tests/2400506#step/bootloader_uefi/9

I tried various ways to get the resolution back to 800x600 or 1024x768 as expected by openQA, but failed.
The xres/yres properties appear to be ignored by OVMF. What works is to explicitly change the resolution in the OVMF configuration.

For now I downgraded OVMF on ow4 to the version in 15.3 (202008-150300.10.14.1).

Acceptance criteria

  • AC1: Default resolution with qxl is restored, or qxl is not used anymore
  • AC2: Use of the new firmware image is not known to cause any test failures

Suggestions

Workaround

  • Option 1: Downgrade OVMF to <= 202008-150300.10.14.1
  • Option 2 (TBC): Use a different graphics setting than QEMUVGA=qxl

The only thing remotely helpful I found seems to be https://developer.fedoraproject.org/tools/virtualization/setting-viewport-resolution-using-ovmf-bios.html . So I wonder, to keep XGA resolution, maybe we need to supply our own patched version of OVMF? Is there no way to configure the viewport by qemu parameters? That feels strange.

However, can you confirm it's really only QXL affected?

I did a little bit of research, and it seems that the resolution can only be changed 1) within the guest 2) by resizing the window on the host. And even though the original code changes say it's important to have the right resolution from the start the numbers are all hard-coded.

I count at least two votes against not supporting qxl, hence closing my PR.

So this probably means adapting the tests to use 1280x800 needles in the first steps.

Marius and I tried several things to locally get into this step with the menu: https://openqa.opensuse.org/tests/2400506#step/bootloader_uefi/12

I would say we should have an openQA test code implementation which is able to change the resolution first. And the configuration can be saved in an uefi-pflash-vars file that we could upload from openQA and reuse in other or all tests.

What I did locally to select the resolution manually and save that in the vars file:

Unfortunately the PR only dealt with jobs which enter the OVMF menu anyway, like DUALBOOT cases. In e.g. BOOT_FROM_HDD cases, the firmware has autoboot enabled and the menu is not automatically entered, so the first screen is GRUB2 with the high resolution:
https://openqa.opensuse.org/tests/2470022#step/bootloader_uefi/1
https://openqa.opensuse.org/tests/2472141#step/bootloader_uefi/1

One approach to fix that is to try to enter the menu forcibly and then configure the resolution. I attempted that but failed to get it working. Considering it's hard for a human to get the timing right, it's probably near impossible for openQA to get that done in a reliable fashion.

IMO the only reliable way is to do it like comment #16 and use a preconfigured OVMF NVRAM for all UEFI tests. Alternatively we could just ignore that the resolution is not native to openQA and just create blurry needles, but that's IMO not great either.

For now I downgraded OVMF on ow4 again so that we can address this properly.

Suggestion to all where tests still fail: Use the most downstream place where UEFI+QEMUVGA=qxl/virtio is set. So e.g. if UEFI is set by the machine and QEMUVGA in a job template then set in the job template. If QEMUVGA is set in a machine but UEFI in a job template (I advise against that combination setting) then in the job template. If UEFI+QEMUVGA are set in a machine definition (preferred solution) then please also set in the machine.

Comparing opensuse-Tumbleweed-DVD-x86_64-Build20221003-upgrade_Leap_15.2_cryptlvm@uefi failing in bootloader_uefi with the custom OVMF vars file to opensuse-Tumbleweed-DVD-x86_64-cryptlvm_vanilla_upgraded_ovmf_okurz@uefi not failing in bootloader_uefi. It seems like the custom OVMF vars image is remembering "something" about boot selections hence preventing the system to behave as we expect it.

Actions #44

Updated by mkittler over 1 year ago

Considering @okurz's last findings we need to either tweak how we create the custom OVMF vars file (so it acts like the vanilla file and only changes the resolution) or we find a way to deal with the different resolution. Not sure what we can tweak when creating the custom vars file, though. Dealing with the different resolution would maybe be possible by creating specific needles but at least in the installer we should not need any specific needles anymore. We actually could look into setting XRES=1280 and YRES=800 in accordance to the new defaults for qxl tests. With a bit of luck it doesn't need to many needle changes (at least less than dealing with distorted/resized images).

Note that the only really problematic case was the case where GRUB then booted with a resolution of 1280x800 and even the installer continued using that wrong resolution. I suppose these problematic cases are specific to the qxl backend. Considering only qxl is the really problematic case we should also restrict the use of a custom OVMF vars file (or any other workarounds) to that scenario in any case. I suppose dealing with GRUB booting at 1024x768 (as we see it in other graphics backends) by editing some needles is acceptable (we don't need to force GRUB to 800x600).

https://gitlab.com/kraxel/virt-firmware has some support for modifying EFI variable store files. With that it's possible to see the change in the file itself:

  qword: 0x0000025800000320

The format is defined here: https://github.com/tianocore/edk2/blob/c05a218a9758225ddf94eedb365633f2154551da/OvmfPkg/PlatformDxe/PlatformConfig.h#L21
A uint32_t of the horizontal resolution (800 -> 0x320) followed by an uint32_t of the vertical resolution (600 -> 0x258).

With some modification to also support writing PlatformConfig alongside bootorder and certificates, it should be possible to set the preferred resolution in var images directly.

  • qemu 6.2.0 + qemu-uefi-aarch64 2022.02: is broken with distorted image, visible on fonts of grub (known already)
  • qemu 6.2.0 + qemu-uefi-aarch64 2022.05 (from virt repo): works, but grub is displayed with a higher resolution
  • qemu 7.1.0 (from TW) + qemu-uefi-aarch64 2022.02: is broken with distorted image, visible on fonts of grub
  • qemu 7.1.0 (from TW) + qemu-uefi-aarch64 2022.05 (from virt repo): works, but grub is displayed with a higher resolution

So, I updated qemu-uefi-aarch64 and qemu-uefi-aarch32 to version 2022.05 from virt repo for all aarch64 o3 workers. (It should also be safe for boo#1197458)

I unblock and unassign myself, since there have been more urgent tickets and tasks repeatedly.

See also the comment https://progress.opensuse.org/issues/116812#note-24

https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1204067

The symptom looks the same as bsc#1203825.

Please try to upgrade qemu-ovmf-x86_64 that at least contains the following change:

So upgrading might be working now.

I just checked on a fresh 15.4 container that the patch is there:

Seems I never can work on this ticket.
I just got a short notice of a meeting tomorrow that I have to prepare for.

@favogt could you run the tests that were previously failing, on openqaworker19?
I upgraded there to ovmf-202202-150400.5.5.1.src which has several patches that might fix the issues.

I'm not sure how to run tests because all the linked tests are deleted by now. The only one I ran was https://openqa.opensuse.org/tests/3189827

Talked with tinita. https://openqa.opensuse.org/tests/3189827 looks good. Did

for i in aarch64 openqaworker4 openqaworker7 openqaworker19 openqaworker20 qa-power8-3 rebel; do echo $i && ssh root@$i "zypper rl qemu-ovmf-x86_64 && zypper -n in qemu-ovmf-x86_64" ; done

we also have the zypper lock on OSD workers so I did

sudo salt --no-color --state-output=changes -C 'G@roles:worker' cmd.run 'zypper rl qemu-ovmf-x86_64 && zypper -n in qemu-ovmf-x86_64 && rpm -q qemu-ovmf-x86_64'

but as I found no OSD tests linked here I did not retrigger any tests for verification.
I also VERIFIED FIXED https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1204067 now.

So this should suffice for the work here.

@Oliver: I see that on both arm-1 and arm-3 there are still some locks:

pstivanin@openqa:~> sudo salt 'openqaworker-arm-1.suse.de' cmd.run 'zypper ll'
openqaworker-arm-1.suse.de:

    # | Name              | Type    | Repository | Comment
    --+-------------------+---------+------------+-----------
    1 | qemu-ovmf-x86_64  | package | (any)      | poo#116812
    2 | qemu-uefi-aarch64 | package | (any)  
pstivanin@openqa:~> sudo salt 'openqaworker-arm-3.suse.de' cmd.run 'zypper ll'
openqaworker-arm-3.suse.de:

    2 | qemu-uefi-aarch64 | package | (any)      |

is this expected?

Thanks
