Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 809537
info test kernel validation should allow more flexibility to support beta testing.
Last modified: 2013-07-03 03:37:41 EDT
Description of problem:
The new info test in v7 1.5 validates the tested kernel against a table of RHEL GA kernel versions to insure the SUT is running a GA kernel. In RHEL/v7 beta, this test will always fail, as the GA kernel version is not yet known during beta.
v7's info test should allow partial matches of the version-release string during beta. for example, if the validation file contains "2.6.32" it should match "2.6.32-220".
This will allow the validation file (/usr/share/v7/lib/v7/kernelInfo.xml) to specify a range of kernel versions during beta. When the RHEL GA kernel is known, the updated copy v7 attempts to download can be fixed to a specific version-release.
