After running cdrom test (hts print showed the test passed), "hts submit" failed
to create results*.rpm file and print errors on display (see below).

1.Install RHEL5-RC1-i386 to the system with a CD-RW/DVD+RW drive (in this case,
2.Install hts-5.0-25 + dependencies rpms "hts plan", "hts certify -t cdrom", "hts print", "hts submit"
Actual results:
Can't make result*.rpm to submit to

Expected results:
Must be able to create results*.rpm when run "hts submit".

Additional info:

Comment 3 Danny Trinh 2007-02-22 14:42:54 UTC
Can RH look into this bug? We can't pack-up the results to *.rpm to submit to

Comment 4 Danny Trinh 2007-03-06 15:18:36 UTC
Dell had several dvd+/-rw drives need to test, but hts failed to do the jobs.
What will Dell do to get those drive certified?

Comment 5 YangKun 2007-03-07 06:34:34 UTC
Please do the following check and see whether this issue still exist:
  1) This error may caused by data inconsistency after user manually
killed(Ctrl-C) running tests. Please remove all *.xml files(config.xml, plan.xml
and results.xml) under /var/hts/ directory , then re-run the tests;

  2) Currently, only en_US locale is supported. If you've set the locale to
other languages, plaese change it to en_US, and remove all *.xml files under
/var/hts/ directory , then re-run the tests.

Please keep using hts-5.0-25 to test.

*** Bug 227665 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

Comment 7 Greg Nichols 2007-03-07 15:53:01 UTC
I can rule out issue 1) the results.xml is ok.

Comment 8 Danny Trinh 2007-03-07 16:04:52 UTC
issue 2: My kickstart.cfg contained the following:
lang en_US
keyboard us

Therefore, it should be en_US locale.
I'm curious, where do you check locale setting? /etc/sysconfig/i18n?


Comment 9 Danny Trinh 2007-03-09 22:12:27 UTC
Same errors on hts-5.0-30

Comment 10 Larry Troan 2007-03-13 02:11:23 UTC
Per Danny Trinh at Dell....
Bug#229025 is stopper. Precision 690n, Precision 490n,
Precision 390n will not be done if bug#229025 is not solved.

Comment 11 Yu Shao 2007-03-13 02:22:57 UTC
Hi Danny,

Please use hts r31 which has just been released, in r31 a patch is also included
to enable you patch r26 result rpm to avoid retesting.

Let's know if you still have problem.


Comment 13 YangKun 2007-03-13 02:55:52 UTC
Hi Danny,

Please try to remove all ".pyc" and ".pyo" files under the directory
"/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/hts/" first , then re-run "hts submit", see if
the result rpm is generated. If not, please manually package the results like

  1) tar jcvf var-log-hts.tar.bz2 /var/log/hts/
  2) tar jcvf var-hts.tar.bz2 /var/hts/

then, please attach these two tar files(var-log-hts.tar.bz2 and var-hts.tar.bz2)
as attachments to , we can manually review them.


Comment 14 Yu Shao 2007-03-13 03:17:51 UTC
Danny, please let us know the cerd id if you could only attach tarball, so
hwcert could leverage from there.


Comment 16 Greg Nichols 2007-03-13 16:21:16 UTC
Fixed unicode error on hts submit for R32.  Leaving in NEEDINFO to facilitate
manual review of existing results.

Comment 17 Danny Trinh 2007-03-13 22:10:31 UTC
Please see the bug#232131 for more info. about the cert ID.
There are more to come.

Comment 18 YangKun 2007-03-14 02:31:31 UTC
bug#232131 is processed , and the unicode error is fixed in R32 . closing this
bug now.

Comment 19 Greg Nichols 2007-03-14 02:54:17 UTC
Re-opened, put in MODIFIED, pending verification once R32 is made available.

Comment 20 Danny Trinh 2007-03-14 14:46:20 UTC
Is there a way that I can get R32 to run for verification? Thanks, Danny
