Description

Once the XO has begun standard full test the user needs a way to exit the tests if they are satisfied rather then waiting for the complete test to finish.

Change History

There is already a special key that does that. It is in the lower right hand corner, just below the game key diamond.

:-)

I think they were looking for a KB based option.

Tell them that it wouldn't work if the keyboard was faulty?

Changed 3 years ago by reuben

Alright Alright..Let me push back and see if I can get a specific use case.

Changed 3 years ago by wmb@…

I have already implemented bailout via the ESC key.

Changed 3 years ago by reuben

Thanks. They'll be glad to hear that.

Changed 3 years ago by wmb@…

What they might not be so glad of is potential interactions between that and the use of the keyboard during specific tests.

svn 2688 tests out fine for left rocker key entry.

svn 2690 fixes test-all. q4c04jg.rom

Also, when using test-all, but not the rocker key entry, the user may interrupt self tests using the standard OpenFirmware keyboard interrupt. That is the frame key on membrane keyboards, or the del key on mechanical keyboards. The del key was only recently fixed and isn't in a release yet - #10318.

Changed 3 years ago by reuben

Can we monitor until it hits 1.0 and 1.5 OFW release.
