Checkbox is a flexible test automation software.
It’s the main tool used in Ubuntu Certification program.
You can use checkbox without any modification to check if your system is
behaving correctly or you can develop your own set of tests to check your
needs. See Checkbox tutorials for details.
Documentation is under development. Some things are wrong, inaccurate or
describe development goals rather than current state.
Checkbox can be installed from a PPA
(recommended) or pypi on Ubuntu Precise (12.04)
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:hardware-certification/public && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install checkbox-ng
Running stable release update tests
Checkbox has special support for running stable release updates tests in an
automated manner. This runs all the jobs from the sru.test plan and sends the
results to the certification website.
To run SRU tests you will need to know the so-called Secure ID of the
device you are testing. Once you know that all you need to do is run:
$ checkbox sru $secure_id submission.xml
The second argument, submission.xml, is a name of the fallback file that is
only created when sending the data to the certification website fails to work
for any reason.
