Subject: autopkgtest-build-qemu does not set up /dev/ttyS[01]
Date: Sat, 16 May 2020 17:03:18 +0900 (JST)
Package: autopkgtest
Version: 5.13.1
Severity: minor
Tags: beowulf ceres
Control: found -1 5.10

Dear Maintainer,

"man autopkgtest-virt-qemu" says:
REQUIREMENTS
       autopkgtest-virt-qemu  assumes  that you have already prepared a suitable Debian based QEMU image (see BUILDING IMAGES below for how to create them).
       But you can use any VM which has python3 or python installed and either

       *   opens a root shell on ttyS1, or

       *   has a serial console on ttyS0 where you can log in (getty or similar) with specified user and password. This will then be used to  start  a  root
           shell on ttyS1, to reduce this to the first case and to not assume that ttyS0 stays operational throughout the whole test.

But autopkgtest-build-qemu does not adjust /etc/inittab inside the qemu image,
and autopkgtest-virt-qemu always fails.
Workaround is easy, just modify /etc/inittab in the qemu image.

This issue is found in package versions 5.13.1 and 5.10.

Best regards, Ryutaroh Matsumoto

autopkgtest is not a forked package and Devuan uses Debian's packages directly.

Can you report this to Debian BTS, please?

Thanks

Mark

Added tag(s) debian. Request was from Mark Hindley <mark@hindley.org.uk> to 459-submit@bugs.devuan.org. (Sat, 16 May 2020 09:33:04 GMT) (full text, mbox, link).

I don't think this is a Debian issue.
Debian PID 1 is systemd,
and with systemd ttyS[01] are available
in autopkgtest-built qemu images.

I believe "tag debian" should be removed.

Best regards, Ryutaroh

No. Both sysvinit and runit-init are available in Debian. So this issue would be
present on a Debian system not running systemd as PID1.

Umm, but is there any option to instruct autopkgtest to
make a Debian qemu image with PID 1 not being systemd?
I do not know such an option.

How can anybody reproduce this issue on Debian??
Do you have any idea?

Best regards, Ryutaroh
