Tests on several Linux distributions
rkt aims to be supported on several Linux distributions. In order to notice distro-specific issues, Continuous Integration should ideally run the tests on several Linux distributions.
rkt tests can be intrusive and require full root privileges. Each test should be run on a fresh VM. VMs should not be reused for next tests.
tests/aws.sh can generate a AMI of the specified Linux distribution with all the dependencies rkt needs.
First, install aws-cli and configure it with your AWS credentials. Then, create a key pair and a security group for rkt tests:
$ tests/aws.sh setup
Then generate an AMI of the specified Linux distribution:
$ tests/aws.sh fedora-22 $ tests/aws.sh fedora-23 $ tests/aws.sh fedora-24 $ tests/aws.sh fedora-rawhide $ tests/aws.sh ubuntu-1604 $ tests/aws.sh ubuntu-1510 $ tests/aws.sh debian $ tests/aws.sh centos
The generated AMIs can then be used to configure Jenkins.
If new packages are needed they can be added to the corresponding cloudinit files in
