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

today were tested two new NET install .isos (0571,0572)
the x86_64 isos still failed early with a yast2/installer segfault
the NET-i586-Build0572 now already failed at kexec
on another try it did not find hard disks... or might this be a problem with
KVM(version 85)? On another system with KVM, the same iso hung before grub
menu. that can't be right. So I need to take a deeper look into that, too.
On third retry it went past the first reboot and had a black screen - possibly
on second stage config like .

feedback welcome
