openQA test in scenario opensuse-Tumbleweed-DVD-x86_64-update_123@64bit fails in


Fails since (at least) Build 20170926

Expected result

Last good: 20170925 (or more recent)

Further details

Always latest result in this scenario: latest

Human observation

The issue happens quite a lot, and it is always http:// being mis-typed as htp://;


#1 Updated by okurz over 5 years ago

This is an autogenerated message for openQA integration by the openqa_review script:

This bug is still referenced in a failing openQA test: xfce

#2 Updated by dimstar over 5 years ago

One observation: openQA seems to be more likley to 'miss' a keystroke when there are double-letters.

Like in the ff-audio test, http:// is commonly misspelled htp://; similary, LO-Writer on KDE often mistypes 'Hello world!' as 'Helo world!'; in both cases the repeated letter is missing.

#4 Updated by riafarov over 5 years ago

As previous commit didn't help, let's see if typing slowly will do the trick:

#5 Updated by okurz over 5 years ago

so my PR is merged, tests look to be more stable but not completely, e.g. shows an empty recording window. Maybe something starts/stops too early/late here?

#6 Updated by okurz over 5 years ago

  • Assignee changed from okurz to riafarov

again a mismatch in the audio output:

riafarov How would you handle that? With your new addition to os-autoinst as well?

#7 Updated by riafarov over 5 years ago

Yes, we can either introduce soft-failure or create needle with lower match margin (e.g. 65%).

#8 Updated by okurz over 5 years ago

  • Status changed from In Progress to Resolved
  • Assignee changed from riafarov to okurz

ok right. Created a needle "DTMF-159D-slower-2-20171201". Could help. If necessary maybe another needle. If that still not helps we should reopen.
