Description Rainer Koenig 2004-07-07 07:57:01 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040614 Firefox/0.8 Description of problem: I'm trying to do a "Red Hat Ready" certification for some PCs. For that I've downloaded the scripts from http://hardware.redhat.com/hcl/?pagename=files That gives the following files: rhr2-0.9-14.2.noarch.rpm rhr2-externals-0.9-14.2.noarch.rpm rhr2-tests-0.9-14.2.noarch.rpm I installed those files on a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 WS Update 2 that was installed selecting "ALL" packages. After that I can start # readhat-ready and get a sort of menu system. The problem starts with the hardware detection. The system is busy for a while, but if I look into /etc/rhr/hardware.conf then I only see a bunch of comments and nothing else. Since there is no documentation for the format of this files I think that I should enter here some information by hand. If I play around with the tests for example the CDROM test is finished very quickly and doesn't access the CD drive at all. The CORE test is running long without any visible results. The USB test seems to hang in an endless loop where it tells me to plug and unplug devices and so on. Is there somewhere a sort of HowTo, step-by-step user documentation or anything helpful for this certification tests? I'm not much motivated to have a close look at the scripts just to figure out what data could be needed by the scripts. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 0.9-14.2 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Download files 2. Install the 3 rpms 3. run redhat-ready Actual Results: Hardware detection seems not to work. Undocumented format of /etc/rhr/hardware.conf doesn't make the job easier. Expected Results: Working hardware detection or documentation of vital files. Additional info:
Comment 1 Rob Landry 2004-07-13 02:26:49 UTC
The normal cause is an inability of the test machine to reach xmlrpc.rhn.redhat.com which is required by hardware.py which is used during the discovery phase. Simply ensuring that any sort of web server responds to this address (for example adding 127.0.0.1 xmlrpc.rhn.redhat.com and ensure httpd is running locally) should resolve this issue. hardware.conf is self documented; unfortunately that's based on redhat-ready's ability to create it in the first place. Perhaps a sample file would assist here. Some documentation is available in /usr/share/doc/rhr2-0.9 but I don't think its what you're looking for. A work around is expected to be in the next release of rhr2 and perhaps I could the afore mentioned sample file then.
Comment 2 Rob Landry 2004-07-13 02:29:24 UTC
that is to say... - xmlrpc.rhn.redhat.com and ensure httpd is running locally) should + xmlrpc.rhn.redhat.com to /etc/hosts and ensure httpd is running locally) should ...and... - release of rhr2 and perhaps I could the afore mentioned sample file then. + release of rhr2 and perhaps I could add the afore mentioned sample file then.
Comment 3 Rainer Koenig 2004-07-13 11:02:52 UTC
Thanks for the hint with the xmlrpc.rhn.redhat.com. /etc/rhr/hardware.conf looks much better now, that means I can go on testing a bit.
