Description

observation

There is a bug bsc#950695:
SLED12 after update to SLED12 SP1 RC2 using DVD the grub2 menu still kept SLED12 entries which should update to 'SLED12 SP1'

problem

But openQA didn't spot it:
-sle-12-SP1-Desktop-DVD-x86_64-Build3348-migration_offline_sled11_sp3_sdk
https://openqa.suse.de/tests/145985/modules/livecdreboot/steps/6
(In this test the grub2 menu has been updated and openQA passed it)
-Results for sle-12-SP1-Desktop-DVD-x86_64-Build3348-migration_offline_sled12
https://openqa.suse.de/tests/145934/modules/livecdreboot/steps/6
(In this test the grub2 menu has not been updated and openQA didn't spot it ;( )

Seems openQA ignore the specific characters of grub2's menu after update.

suggestion

unregister all grub2 needles in main.pm that don't match your target system and check for specific ones to appear

History

#1 Updated by coolo about 7 years ago

  • Project changed from openQA Project to openQA Tests

testing for 'grub2' is too limited if you need a very specific grub2. One solution to that problem is actually to unregister all grub2 needles in main.pm that don't match your target system
