adt-run - test an installed binary package using the package's tests
adt-run options... --- virt-server [virt-server-arg...]
adt-run is the program for invoking the autopkgtest package testing machinery. autopkgtest is a facility for testing binary packages, as installed on a system (such as a testbed system). The tests are those supplied in the source package. adt-run runs each test supplied by a particular package and reports the results. It drives the specified virtualisation regime as appropriate, and parses the test description metadata, and arranges for data to be copied to and from the testbed as required. adt-run should be invoked (unless options to the contrary are supplied) in the top level directory of the built source tree, on the host. The package should be installed on the testbed. See /usr/share/doc/autopkgtest/README.running-tests.gz for an introduction about how to use adt-run.
--source dsc Run tests from source package dsc. By default the package will also be built and the resulting binaries will be used to satisfy test dependencies; to disable that, specify the -B/--no-built-binaries option before. The ordering is significant: each --source option should precede options whose dependencies are to be satisfied by the binaries it produces. --unbuilt-tree directory Specifies that tests from the unbuilt source tree directory should be run. This is very similar to specifying --source except that a directory tree (which should be pristine) is supplied, instead of a source package. --built-tree directory Specifies that tests from the built source tree directory should be run. Note that all test dependencies are then satisfied by archive packages, unless you explicitly specify locally built .debs with --binary. --apt-source srcpkgname Downloads srcpkgname with apt-get source in the testbed and run its tests. This is similar to specifying --source but avoids copying the source from the host to the testbed. Resulting binaries will not be used to satisfy dependencies, as usually in this mode you want to test binaries from a real archive. --binary deb Specifies that deb should be used for tests of all following source packages. By default it will be used to satisfy dependencies, both during building and testing. The ordering is significant, as for --source. In particular, if a subsequent source package will build a binary of the same name, that will be used from then on, and deb will be ignored. filename Bare filename arguments are processed as if --built-tree, --source, --unbuilt-tree, --apt-source, or --binary was specified; the nature of the argument is guessed from the form of the filename. In the case of --built-tree, either the option must be specified, or the filename must end in a slash; two slashes at the end are taken to mean --unbuilt-tree.
These affect processing instructions. Unless stated otherwise, they affect all subsequent options. --sources-tests|--sources-no-tests Specifies that the tests in subsequent --source and --unbuilt-tree arguments should (or should not) be run. --built-binaries-filter=pattern,pattern,... Specifies that only binaries whose package names match one of the specified patterns should be used; others will be ignored. This option applies to subsequent --source and --unbuilt-tree arguments. -B | --no-built-binaries Specifies that all built binaries from source packages should be ignored completely, and dependencies are satisfied with packages from the archive. Note that packages still get built if a test requires build-needed. Equivalent to --built-binaries-filter=_ (since no package name ever contains _). --binaries=ignore | --binaries=auto | --binaries=install Specifies that binary package (in subsequently specified --binary arguments, or resulting from subsequently specified --source or --unbuilt-tree arguments and not filtered out) should be ignored, used only to satisfy dependencies, or installed unconditionally, respectively. Equivalent to specifying both --binaries-forbuilds and --binaries-fortests. --binaries-forbuilds=... Like --binaries= but only changes the handling during package building: packages will be ignored, used for dependencies, or unconditionally installed, when a source package is built. --binaries-fortests=... Like --binaries= but only changes the handling during testing: packages will be ignored, used for dependencies (including as the package under test), or unconditionally installed, when tests are run (as a result of --source, --built- tree or --unbuilt-tree).
-u user | --user=user Run builds and tests as user on the testbed. This needs root on the testbed; if root on the testbed is not available then builds and tests run as whatever user is provided. --gain-root=gain-root Prefixes debian/rules binary with gain-root. The default is not to use anything, except that if --user is supplied or root on the testbed is not available the default is fakeroot. -o dir | --output-dir=dir Specifies that test artifacts (stderr and stdout from the tests, the log file, built binary packages etc.) should be placed in the given directory. dir will be created if necessary, and emptied of all of its contents before adt-run starts. -l logfile | --log-file=logfile Specifies that the trace log should be written to logfile instead of to output-dir. --summary=summary Specifies that a summary of the outcome should be written to summary. The events in the summary are written to the log in any case. --timeout-which=seconds Use a different timeout for operations on or with the testbed. There are four timeouts affected by four values of which: short: supposedly short operations like setting up the testbed's apt and checking the state (default: 100s); install: installation of packages including dependencies (default: 3ks); test: test runs (default: 10ks); and build: builds (default: 100ks). The value must be specified as an integer number of seconds. --timeout-factor=double Multiply all of the default timeouts by the specified factor (see --timeout-which above). Only the defaults are affected; explicit timeout settings are used exactly as specified. --debug|-d Include additional debugging information in the trace log. Each additional -d increases the debugging level; the current maximum is -ddd. If you like to see what's going on, -d or -dd is recommended. --shell-fail|-s Run an interactive shell in the testbed after every failed test. --shell Run an interactive shell in the testbed after every test. --gnupg-home=dir Uses dir as the GNUPGHOME for local apt archive signing. The specified directory should not contain keyrings containing other unrelated keys, since adt-run does not specify to gpg which keys to use. The default is $HOME/.autopkgtest. --gnupg-home=fresh Use a fresh temporary directory and generate fresh keys each run. This can be very slow and depends on the availability of sufficient quantities of high-quality entropy. -q | --quiet Do not send a copy of adt-run's trace logstream to stderr. This option does not affect the copy sent to logfile or output-dir. Note that without the trace logstream it can be very hard to diagnose problems. --set-lang=langval When running commands on the testbed, sets the LANG environment variable to langval. The default in adt-run is to set it to C. --leave-lang Suppresses the setting by adt-run of LANG on the testbed. This results in tests and builds using the testbed's own normal LANG value setting. --setup-commands=commands Run commands after opening the testbed. This can be used e. g. to enable additional apt sources, run apt-get update or similar. If commands is an existing file name, the commands are read from that; otherwise it is a string with the actual commands that gets run as-is. This option can be specified multiple times. --apt-upgrade | -U Run apt-get update and apt-get dist-upgrade -y in the testbed before running the tests. --apt-pocket=pocket Add apt sources for release-pocket. This finds the first deb line in /etc/apt/sources.list which does not already specify a pocket and adds a deb and deb-src line with that pocket to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pocket.list. Note that this does not imply calling apt-get update.
--- virt-server virt-server-arg... Specifies the virtualisation regime server, as a command and arguments to invoke. virt-server must be an existing autopkgtest virtualization server such as adt-virt- schroot or adt-virt-qemu. You can leave out the adt-virt- prefix and just specify the last part, e. g. schroot. All the remaining arguments and options after --- are passed to the virtualisation server program. See the manpages of the individual servers for how to use them.
During a normal test run, one line is printed for each test. This consists of a short string identifying the test, some horizontal whitespace, and either PASS or FAIL reason or SKIP reason where the pass/fail indication is separated by any reason by some horizontal whitespace. The string to identify the test consists of a short alphanumeric string invented by adt- run to distinguish different command-line arguments, the argid, followed by a hyphen and the test name. Sometimes a SKIP will be reported when the name of the test is not known or not applicable: for example, when there are no tests in the package, or a there is a test stanza which contains features not understood by this version of adt-run. In this case * will appear where the name of the test should be. If adt-run detects that erroneous package(s) are involved, it will print the two lines blame: blamed-thing... and badpkg: message. Here each whitespace-separated blamed-thing is one of arg:argument (representing a pathname found in a command line argument), dsc:package (a source package name), deb:package (a binary package name) or possibly other strings to be determined. This indicates which arguments and/or packages might have contributed to the problem; the ones which were processed most recently and which are therefore most likely to be the cause of a problem are listed last.
0 all tests passed 1 unexpected failure (the python interpreter invents this exit status) 2 at least one test skipped 4 at least one test failed 6 at least one test failed and at least one test skipped 8 no tests in this package 12 erroneous package 16 testbed failure 20 other unexpected failures including bad usage
This tool still lacks some important features and is not very well-tested.
