Description

Observation

openQA test in scenario opensuse-Tumbleweed-DVD-aarch64-upgrade_Leap_15.0_gnome@aarch64 fails in
ncurses

Sometimes, ncurses dialogs are broken (multiple Ì instead of lines). x86 and aarch64 are both affected.
Most of the time restarting the test is enough.
Maybe detect the bug early with a needle in ncurses test and fails the whole test suite to avoid to waste time?

Test suite description

Upgrade scenario from Leap 15.0 with gnome installed.

Reproducible

Fails since (at least) Build 20200201 (current job)

Expected result

Last good: 20200131 (or more recent)

Further details

Always latest result in this scenario: latest

History

#1 Updated by ggardet_arm about 2 years ago

Still occurs: https://openqa.opensuse.org/tests/1488788#step/ncurses/5
Maybe more often this days.
Should we detect it and die? With an automatic restart, maybe?
