Depecated: This page is not used any more. Instead we make use of Project Quickstarts for testing.

This page describes how to test each application installed on the Live GIS Disc. Application test steps describe how an Ubuntu user who is unfamiliar an application can try it out and confirm that everything has been installed correctly within 5 minutes. Test Results document when the application was last verified to be working.

Template

Tests written for
.package. [version], osgeo-live [version]
Test Description last updated
.date.

Steps

Ideally, steps will mimic the Quick Start documentation, so both can be tested at once. Otherwise, use following:

  1. .action.
Verify that ...

  1. Eg: From menu, select GeoSpatial->Application->Start
Eg: Verify that a browser opens at url: http://localhost:... and shows the application start page.

  1. Update the wiki with test results (after these test steps)

Boot and Installer

Steps

Ideally, steps will reference Quick Start documentation, otherwise use following:

  • . Straight up Live DVD Disk
  • . Installer (into a VM if that is easier to clean up after)
  • . Testing is performed offline
Verify that ...
  • . You arrive at the desktop
  • . Help opens
  • . Firefox opens up
  • Update the wiki with test results (after these test steps)

Results from August 6th

System: Thinkpad T43, 2 GB, on live dvd
System: Macbook Pro, 4 GB, on live dvd
System: VirtualBox, 1 GB, 30GB HD image, on windows 7
Version: distribution version: eg: osgeo-live 4.0 rc6
Results: Pass with issues

Bootloader

  • . shows version 3.0
  • . think pad boots fine
  • . mac needed to hit ENTER to get to the initial boot loading screen

Installer

  • . tried with vitural box vm
  • . install says "Arramagong live"
  • . obviously installing will allow you to enter a user name; will this break applications expecting "user" ?
  • . my install failed; not enough space on the device. Need instructions indicating how much space is needed

Desktop

  • . think pad displays fine
  • . macbook pro - test OSGeo LIVE DVD Barcelona is cut off (and this one has higher resolution than many laptops)
  • . virtual box - could not adjust the screen resolution beyond the initial 800x600, instructions for open-vm-tools were fine, oh wait it wants a reboot - of a live dvd?
  • . never did get virtual box to have a different screen resolution even after adding the open-vm-tools

Suggestions from IRC:

  • . change background to not have text
  • . text at bottom of desktop being cut off is probably a function of screen aspect ratio
  • . indicate that "user" is the password in a box or make it more visible (good idea jasonbirch)
  • link to bug reports

Version: osgeo-live 4.0 rc6
Results: Atlas styler fail
  • Application is in "Education > Atlasstyler" (Not Science > Atlas Styler)
  • Quickstart is not specific enough; it is more a link to other docs
  • Application "window" is messed up; the window tilebar is folded up under the desktop bar; you can resise the window; but not move it.
  • Tried with natural_earth countries, a warning was provided that it would use the default style, progress bar is taking a long time
  • Oh wait the tutorials link to their website (I am offline); but the styling layers with SLD tutorials in french and english are actually included on the disk (verified both links work)
  • The application never came back to me; and the window issue result in a fail
  • darn I was looking forward to this one
  • figured out a workaround; clicking on task bar and asking the application to maximiz finally lets me get at the window tilebar
  • Whew was able to use "ps -ef | grep java" and "kill" to shut it down

Results: Pass with issues
  • Quickstart document is not rendering correct; images rescale and text is pushed out of the way
  • Start GeoServer icon is not specific; it is in Web Services now; or in the Education menu (sigh!)
  • Nice progress bar as it starts up (who did that?)
  • Helpful having the start page link in the docs; but that new little progress bar opened the page for me
  • Suffers from the same "Firefox is in offline mode" error and cannot see local host (sent to email list)
  • No need to login if all you are doing is showing the layer preview
  • Warning is about the read-only file system; the live dvd provides this; so is this warning needed?
  • the directory needs to be /home/user/data/natural_earth (since the live dvd user name is "user" )
  • So adding a layer was fine; the sectino for adding the style to the layer is empty

  • MapTiler application starts without problems when clicked on the icon
  • When you press on "Render" applications starts the processing and does not report any error.

Alternative "real" geodata for testing are for example USGS maps or NOAA RNCs.

Another way to try it:

  1. Start MapTiler by clicking the icon on the Desktop
  2. Load in the second step example raster GEODATA (with georeference/srs)
  3. Go through all the steps with 'Next' up to the Render
  4. Once the render is finished you can click in the GUI to open a folder with tiles. When you open googlemaps.html or openlayers.html then you see your geodata warped to the overlay of popular interactive web maps as Google Maps.

The map tiles are displayed directly from your disk. To publish the map to Internet just upload the folder with tiles to any webserver or Amazon S3"

    • The main page of the MapServer 5.6 Docs that's on the DVD is from 5.6.3, and the OSM map in that page does not work: the link to the tiles point to a dead server. This is a known issue and the current version of the docs on the MapServer website (v5.6.5) have the map disabled... so it may be a good idea to grab the latest version of the 5.6 docs for the DVD.

R

  • double click on the R Icon
  • at the command line, type demo(graphics) and hit return
  • follow the prompt and watch the target window for examples

If it is possible please add steps here to test the included geostats packages, they are both more interesting and more likely to have problems in the build. tx

e.g. something with r-cran-maps(.deb), gstat, sp, rgdal, or spgrass6 ?
#Load a library
library(sp)
#list the demos available
demo()
#Run the demo from the sp package
#This will step you through several examples of code and the resulting plots

  • Geopublisher should be listed as version 1.5 in contents ( it's 1.4 )
  • Geoserver 2.0.1 should read 2.0.2

  • SAFA GIS not present in contents
  • uDIG 1.2rc1 should read 1.2rc3

The apt-get command failed because I was not connected to a network ( I'm not supposed to be connected to a network, apparently ) and also I was asked for a SUDO password which is not provided.

--sudo password now in welcome message --HB

The linkchecker could thus not be run as I was unable to acquire it

Results: Pass with issues
/usr/local/share/ symlinks for both Mac and Windows installers are broken because /cdrom is a real file and not a symlink to /media/cdrom. Otherwise they seem to be correctly in place in the root dir of the DVD. This seems to be an Ubuntu 10.04 thing, only solution is to link to /cdrom instead of /media/cdrom in the install script.
