Description

UEFI test cases fail atm and need to be fixed.
Maybe the firmware is broken and an older version needs to be used.
Also, qemu was updated to a more recent version than we had before.

History

#1 Updated by aplanas almost 7 years ago

Running locally with old KVM and new firmware. Will test with new qemu also.

With qemu 1.6.0 and the new OVMF I got it to boot in my machine. Still the openqa machine doesn't work

#4 Updated by lnussel almost 7 years ago

The combination of a machine that does not support EPT (looks like a intel feature, opensuseqa is amd), qemu 1.6 and OVMF causes the black screen. Work is going on upstream to fix the issue in a general way in the kvm kernel module. Also, OVMF upstream is working on implementing a workaround.

I filed bnc#841106 to track the failure of ovmf on amd
bnc#824609 still prevents uefi test success even on machines where ovmf works

#6 Updated by lnussel almost 7 years ago

meanwhile ovmf has been fixed. a fix for perl-Bootloader is on the way
