I know that some work have been done to get
openQA working on ARM
through qemu, but also on real hardware.
What is working for now? I would like to perform some tests and maybe
contribute, if I am able to do so.
So, please share any hints/pointers that could help.
Can I run openQA on my own real hardware? I would like to use openQA
images instead on JeOS ones to test openSUSE on by BeagleBone Black.
openQA just run ISO images (and maybe JeOS images for ARM now?) and
compare expected screenshots to actual screenshots to check that all
is OK (or not OK).
I think that some progress have been made to get it working on real
hardware too (only VM for now).
The 'native' mode of operation for openQA is to use qemu to boot an
installation medium or disk image. If qemu supports some 32bit device
then openQA could use that to test. Such test results would only mean
that the distro is good in general, it wouldn't tell anything about the
state of any of the images for actual hardware though.
The experimental real hardware support openqa currently has relies
on a service processor that can turn on/off or reboot the machine
and forward the graphics output with VNC protocol. Some x86
workstations nowadays offer that. Also the machine needs to be able
to pxe boot as inserting physical cdroms automatically is a bit
Last hackweek some guys tried to remove the need for PXE by using
a beagle bone black as USB gadget to emulate usb storage. Since that
also allows to emulate keyboard and mouse it's close to a service
processor. What's still missing is the HDMI decoder to output VNC
though. Would be cool if someone could build a device that can do
all of that :-)
