Some admin tests require Selenium 2, Firefox and Python >= 2.6 to work via a
real Web browser. To allow those tests to run and not be skipped, you must
-install the selenium_ package (version > 2.13) into your Python path.
-Then, run the tests normally, for example:
-.. code-block:: bash
- ./ --settings=test_sqlite admin_inlines
-If you have Selenium installed but for some reason don't want to run these tests
-(for example to speed up the test suite), use the ``--skip-selenium`` option
-of the test runner.
