    Sanity/serge-testsuite: detect xperms support on RHEL-7

    Extended ioctl permission rules are only supported staring with
    3.10.0-875 RHEL-7 kernel. This makes the TC pass on RHEL-7.5.

    Sanity/serge-testsuite: Use fixed git commit by default

    This will avoid breakage of testing caused by upstream commits. Old
    functionality can be achieved by running the TC with GIT_BRANCH=master

Beaker tasks used with skt runner

How to run tests

Here is a list of common prerequisites for all beaker tests. Test-specific dependencies and steps can be found in the within each test's directory.

$ sudo wget -O /etc/yum.repos.d/beaker-client.repo
$ sudo wget -O /etc/yum.repos.d/beaker-harness.repo
$ sudo dnf install -y beaker-client beakerlib restraint-rhts

Test onboarding

Currently, all onboarded tests must use the following combinations of result/status fields:

  • SKIP/COMPLETED if the test requirements aren't fulfilled (eg. test is running on incompatible architecture/hardware)
  • PASS/COMPLETED if the test finished successfully
  • WARN/ABORTED in case of infrastructure issues or other errors (eg. the test checks out a git repo and the git server is unavailable)
  • WARN/COMPLETED or FAIL/COMPLETED in case of any test failures, based on how serious they are (left to decide by test authors)

When onboarding a test, please check especially the point about infrastructure issues: a lot of tests simply report a warning if eg. external server can’t be reached and then continue. This kind of situation falls under infrastructure issues and the test must use the WARN/ABORTED combination, otherwise the infrastructure problem is reported to people as a bug in their code!

The order of Beaker tasks in the XML determines if the task is a preparation for the testing or a test. Anything after kpkginstall task is treated as a test and must follow the rules above. Anything except PASS before kpkginstall is treated as infrastructure issue. Machineinfo (to get HW specification) is ran before kpkginstall, so the same logic applies there. PANIC during kpkginstall means the kernel is bad (can't boot).

You can’t perform that action at this time.
