Bug Description

Since bonnie++ is only a "suggests" for checkbox, it is not installed during installation. Thus, the storage_devices test will never run. Since this test is included in Ubuntu Friendly, the test will cause a false failure every time.

This is a problem. The easy solution would be to just remove the test... however, if we keep removing tests because their dependencies aren't part of Ubuntu and aren't installed, we just keep devaluing the whole process of testing, be it for UF or otherwise...

This is a tricky one, since at this stage we're not going to get bonnie++ onto the CD and neither are we going to be able to implement or find a replacement that is on the CD. I guess we either remove it or accept the failure.

  New upstream release (LP: #862579):

  [Brendan Donegan]
  * Remove test for FTP connection from network_check script (LP: #854222)
  * Update a parameter in usb_test to have it run faster.
  * Remove record_playback_after_suspend from Ubuntu Friendly whitelist (LP: #855540)
  * Fix minor typo in multi-monitor friendly resolution_test script which caused
    minimum_resolution test to fail (LP: #855599)
  * Remove storage_devices_test from Ubuntu Friendly whitelist since bonnie++ (which it uses) is not installed by default (LP: #855841)
  * Changed description and name to reflect Ubuntu Friendly branding. Now when a user searches for Ubuntu Friendly in the lens, Checkbox will appear (LP: #852036)
  * Reset the selections at the test suite prompt if No is selected at the recover prompt (LP: #861208)
  * Save the connection name(s) instead of the interface name so that they can be reconnected to properly after the wireless before/after suspend tests have completed (LP: #861502)
  * Make connect_wireless use the UUID of the connection instead of the name for greater reliability (LP: #862190)

  [Daniel Manrique]
  * Restored _recover attribute, re-enabling welcome and test selection
    screens (LP: #852204)
  * Remove memory/test from the Ubuntu Friendly whitelist (LP: #853799)
  * Use diff instead of grep, better comparing of empty files (LP: #852014)
  * Apport integration: new mandatory "tag" value in ApportOptions (LP: #852201)
  * Add warning prior to starting the tests (LP: #855328)
  * Apport integration: Fix instantiation of Gtk.RadioButton, needed due
    to PyGI related API changes (LP: #805679)
  * Remove ping -R parameter that apparently caused ICMP packets to be dropped
    by some routers (LP: #861404)

  [ Evan Broder ]
  * Replace resolution_test with an implementation which uses GdkScreen to
    be multimonitor-aware (LP: #632987)

  [Jeff Lane]
  * Fix names of optical drive tests and remove a non-existing test from the
    whitelist (LP: #854808)
  * Fix wireless_*_suspend jobs so they recreate iface file instead of append
    each time (LP: #855845)
    (LP: #852201)
  * Clarify better the intend of the is_laptop question (LP: #861844)
  * Fixed dependencies for tests that depend on suspend/suspend_advanced
    (LP: #860651)

  [Tim Chen]
  * Fix cpu_scaling_test (LP: #811177)

  [Ara Pulido]
  * Avoid connect_wireless messing with AP with similar names (LP: #861538)
  * Remove bluetooth/file-transfer from the list of tests to run, since due to
    bug 834348 it always fails.

  [Marc Tardif]
  * Added support for wildcards when verifying the transport certificate.
  * Applying depends across suites (LP: #861218)
