meta-updater uses the oe-selftest framework for quality assurance. Currently, you will need to run this in a build directory with
MACHINE set to
qemux86-64. Follow the steps below to run the tests:
Append the line below to
conf/local.confto disable the warning about supported operating systems:
SANITY_TESTED_DISTROS = ""
If your image does not already include an ssh daemon such as dropbear or openssh, add this line to
IMAGE_INSTALL_append = " dropbear "
Some tests require that
SOTA_PACKED_CREDENTIALSis set in your
conf/local.conf. See the build configuration page for more details.
To be able to build an image for the GRUB tests, you will need to install the
ovmfpackage. This is described in the meta-updater README.
oe-selftest -r updater_native updater_qemux86_64 updater_minnowboard updater_raspberrypi updater_qemux86_64_ptest
For more information about oe-selftest, including details about how to run individual test modules or classes, please refer to the Yocto Project wiki.
The meta-updater layer includes support for running parts of the aktualizr test suite on deployed devices through Yocto’s ptest functionality. Since it adds significant build time cost, it is currently disabled by default. To enable it, add the following to your
PTEST_ENABLED_pn-aktualizr = "1" IMAGE_INSTALL_append += " aktualizr-ptest ptest-runner "
Be aware that it will add several hundreds of MB to the generated file system.
The aktualizr tests will now be part of the deployed ptest suite, which can be run by calling
ptest-runner. Alternatively, the required files and run script can be found in
