openQA Package Testing

a project by RBrownSUSE

openQA has a well earned reputation as a 'full system' testing tool, able to test a system end-to-end from the operating system to it's applications on a number of different platforms and architectures, including VM's & Bare Metal. But one area of weakness is it's usefulness as a testing tool for developers or packagers. openQA can easily test a package once it's INSIDE a distribution, but how do you test that package BEFORE submitting it to the distribution?

openQA web UI improvements

a project by asmorodskyi

  1. currently when you navigate to Test Results page - it will load everything before show you the page. I plan to change this model into "load on demand" approach
  2. Test Details page currently show you thumbnails for all modules. Want to add expand/collapse functionality for thumbnails - by default you will not see them for passed modules. But you will have ability to expand them. Also I will add "Expand All"/"Collapse All"

Setup UEFI HTTPBoot with OVMF and try to write/run test on openQA

a project by bchou

HTTPBoot was added into UEFI SPEC since 2.5. It aims to replace PXE and provides more features. Actually, the concept of HTTPBoot is similar to PXE. It starts with the HTTP URL from the DHCP server and fetches the data with the HTTP protocol. The key difference between HTTPBoot and PXE is the support of DNS. With DNS, the firmware and the bootloader can resolve the domain name so it's possible to pass the well-known URL to download the image instead of the explicit IP URL. Besides, HTTP is designed to cross different domains, while tftp (PXE) is only for the local network. Part1:

Run openQA testsuites with MALLOC_CHECK_ and MALLOC_PERTURB_ variables set

an invention by michalnowak

MALLOC_CHECK_ and MALLOC_PERTURB_ variables are environmental variables which help identify problems with Glibc's malloc() allocations. I intend to set them "globally" for every process via /etc/environment file and see, if test suites behave in usual way, identify problems.

Add VirtualBox bootloader to openQA

an invention by michalnowak

In openQA we support various backends which are able to 'host' tests. 'svirt' - one of those backends - is so generic that it allows to conned to a virtualization host via SSH a perform shell commands directly. As VirtualBox has decent command line interface (especially VBoxManage command) it shouldn't be that hard to support VirtualBox in openQA's os-autoinst via svirt backend.
