Hi ARM guys!
I think current openQA AArch64 tests are done using qemu (at least virtualization).
Correct, and even they keep failing :).
But, how far is ARM tests on real hardware? It seems os-autoinst support real hardware and I remember that some people worked on it during hackweeks.
Are you interested in embedded or server style hardware? For server style hardware with proper BMC, I don't think there'd be much apart from hardware availability keeping us from doing it. For embedded style hardware, the biggest hurdle is that we need to test JeOS images rather than the installation, because we need to provide firmware as well.
I would like to collect all information in order to maybe work on it a bit. For example, which devices do you use to power on/off boards. Did you use os-autoinst or some other tests tools?
One thing I've been working on is an SD card simulator using the BBB. Unfortunately my EE skills are abysmal, so I get up to the point where the SD host switches to 25Mhz mode and then the line collapses ;). With a working SD card simulator, remote power / reset GPIO, an HDMI frame grabber and USB OTG for keyboard/tablet simulation, we should be able to create a generic OpenQA test bed for any embedded device out there.
