if the TS tag is set to RUNIN, and the first 24-hour loop of runin passes, the subsequent will fail with a manifest error identifying wtmp as having changed.

however, there had been no human login attempt, not even a debug shell.

regression over 11.3.1.

breaks documented usage.

As far as I can tell, this problem does not break use of release in mass production ... because an fs-update would be done before a repeated runin. But I have asked.

It could also suggest other problems, so I'll treat this with high priority and hopefully look at it soon. Thanks for reporting.

  • priority changed from normal to high

Factory has replied. Has moderate mass production impact. Test operator is given opportunity to re-run RUNIN by factory scripting. fs-update is a significant time cost.

  • next_action changed from diagnose to add to build

Fixed in olpc-os-builder da79b55. This was a race condition that was always happening, but seemed to be hit by runin every time.

  • next_action changed from add to build to test in build

Test in 12.1.0 build 16.

Seems to work fine on XO-1.5, also restores our ability to re-run runin despite having logged in to Sugar ... which was something we lost along the way without recognising this race as the cause.

  • status changed from new to closed
  • resolution set to fixed

Thanks for testing.
