There's a message from the qemu backend implying that process (perl) might have died, I think I have seen this one few times already...

#1 Updated by szarate about 2 years ago

  • Project changed from openQA Tests to openQA Project
  • Category changed from Bugs in existing tests to Concrete Bugs
  • Target version set to Ready

#2 Updated by mkittler almost 2 years ago

The latest build seems to pass (at least the patch_sle module). In fact, the last build that failed on patch_sle was already 2 month ago. So I'm wondering whether the issue is still reproducible.

#3 Updated by okurz almost 2 years ago

  • Status changed from New to Rejected
  • Assignee set to okurz

I also think to not have seen this recently and assume there is nothing we can do.

#4 Updated by coolo over 1 year ago

  • Target version changed from Ready to Done
