Automatic testing of Ubiquity using VMware

Registered by Colin Watson on 2007-10-05

A number of tools were recently open-sourced by VMware, allowing programmatic interaction with virtual machines. In the Gutsy cycle, the ubiquity-automation work gave us the ability to perform automatic installs using Ubiquity. Conceivably we could run automatic installations, and if a failure is detected then suspend the virtual machine and dump it somewhere where it can be unfrozen and debugged.
