Installing a hardware testing controller

  • Write the hwtest image to a USB key
  • Boot the controller system from the USB key
  • Login as root (no password)
  • Do:

   gnome-hwtest-install --controller
  • Confirm the drive you want to install on - ALL DATA WILL BE ERASED
  • Reboot
  • Login as root (still no password)
  • Determine the MAC addresses of your public and private network interfaces. (ifconfig -a to list the interfaces; ifconfig <ifname> up, look at /sys/class/net/<ifname>/carrier to see if it's plugged in or not. Is adding ethtool to the hwtest image worthwhile?)

  • In /srv/gnome-hwtest edit the file controller.conf to have the right public and private MAC addresses.
