I am planning to run regular (e.g. daily to weekly) semi-automatic tests of
current factory .isos to increase installability/testability of those and
milestone releases for testers, thus increasing overall quality.

Todays score is poor. Out of 5 tested .isos only the i586-NET got past the
install stage and even then hung during the printer configuration phase, so
0.5/5 would be a fair total.

I run this on KVM with a self-made perl script generating keyboard-input and
capturing pictures (currently 2/sec). As a nice side-effect, there can now be
seen compact ogg-theora-videos of the current boot/install having 6x speed at

You might also notice the predicted remaining time on the NET-install to jump
up and down.
Also the "Loading Installation System" part of the NET-boot is suspiciously
long at 100%... and does not have a size given.

If you are interested in those scripts, you can get them from
but they are nowhere near perfect, yet.

have a lot of fun
