Description

Motivation

New firmware might help to prevent qemu failing to run. If we find new firmware we could remove the parameters in os-autoinst again, see clone source ticket

Suggestions

  • Look for new firmware for the machine

  • Check if the new firmware means we do not need https://github.com/os-autoinst/os-autoinst/pull/1554 anymore, if yes, remove again, if no, remove again but add according settings to the machine settings in openQA, this is also what "adamw" did:

[04/11/2020 17:41:52] <adamw> okurz: i don't really know what the consequences of it are, but i tend to the idea that qemu wouldn't be trying to make it the default without reason :) i can ask some virt guys if you like
[04/11/2020 17:42:09] <adamw> okurz: but on the whole, yes, it seems to be it'd be more appropriate to put it in your templates rather than hardwire it into os-autoinst.
[04/11/2020 17:42:29] <adamw> that's what i was doing when we had the problem (i was setting an older machine type in our ppc64le Machine vars)
