Description

Observation

openQA test in scenario opensuse-Tumbleweed-NET-x86_64-zdup-Leap-15.0-gnome@64bit fails in
setup_zdup
to accept the boot menu entry.
It looks like this is a race condition triggered in the step one before.
https://openqa.opensuse.org/tests/937452#step/setup_zdup/1
checks for both "grub2" as well as "inst-bootmenu". inst-bootmenu is also the screen that the previous module "bootloader" already checked for and pressed "ret" afterwards. In the next module, setup_zdup, then the test sees still inst-bootmenu when it is fast enough to check or just finds grub2, depending on timing. Could be this is a regression introduced by e.g. someone from qsf-u or the migration time.

Suggestion

Look closer into the code before even trying to fix it

Reproducible

Fails sporadically with a fail ratio of about 70%

Expected result

https://openqa.opensuse.org/tests/934054#step/setup_zdup/2 is how it should look like in the good case.

the link under Observation https://openqa.opensuse.org/tests/938557/modules/setup_zdup/steps/45 and under Expected result https://openqa.opensuse.org/tests/934054#step/setup_zdup/2 are not valid anymore!

checked that recent tests run https://openqa.opensuse.org/tests/997831 failed already for a month, so this is not about a rice condition or sporadic issue.

#6 Updated by zluo about 3 years ago

found out that there is a difference for qemuvga, now we don't use cirrus anymore, the default qemuvga (I even don't know what is used! the setting itself is missing),
so I set this to cirrus and get the test successfully:
