B@D on Windows 10


Robert Marshall <robert.marshall@...>
 

The B@D development team has been investigating if there are any issues
with the use of the B@D VM on Windows. The ticket
https://gitlab.com/cip-project/cip-testing/testing/issues/106
is being used to collect information and workarounds.

Briefly the current issues/state is as follows:

- We are using virtualbox rather than rsync for config.vm.synced_folder
- core.autocrlf=input is needed in the git settings for the scripts to
run under Debian (and an ssh client either via git or another route)
- We need to look at a substitute for ser2net running on the host in
order to open a connection from the VM to the BBB
- The VM installs and both the KernelCI webserver and Lava2 run
- Having built a kernel the build does not appear in the KernelCI web
interface, there's a long delay before it times out
- Health checks can be created but they don't appear to run, the admin
interface knows about the devices but they don't appear in
Scheduler->All Devices

This testing has been carried out directly from the pure Vagrant install
- once this is running the pre-loaded Vagrant box will also be tested.

Further work is continuing to get B@D fully operational on a Windows 10 host.
