[bug#39729] [PATCH 0/7] Testing the graphical installer

Here’s a test for the graphical installer, as discussed earlier at:

The first part of this patch series implements client support in the
installer as discussed above (only more robust to multiple clients,
disconnections, etc.).  A dirty bit there is the
‘close-port-and-reuse-fd’ hack, which works around the fact that Newt
does not provide a ‘form-unwatch-fd’ procedure.  Good enough for now!
There are also two hacks to (1) skip connectivity checks and (2) to
pass ‘--no-grafts’ to ‘guix system init’.

The second part implements the actual test.  The new (gnu installer
tests) module provides tools to implement a dialogue with the installer,
and the new “gui-installed-os” test uses it to perform a bare-bones
style installation.  There’s a commented out variant that does it on
an encrypted root, but it currently fails presumably due to

That’s it!

Feedback welcome!


PS: This patch series is also available as ‘wip-installer-test’.

Ludovic Courtès (7):
  tests: 'run-basic-test' can enter a root password.
  installer: Use a Guile-Newt snapshot that supports 'form-watch-fd'.
  installer: Implement a dialog on /var/guix/installer-socket.
  installer: Bypass connectivity check when /tmp/installer-assume-online
  installer: Run commands without hopping through the shell.
  installer: Honor /tmp/installer-system-init-options.
  tests: install: Add "gui-installed-os".
