UDS-P-UEFI

UEFI Testing at UDS-P

Note: pre-UDS testing has been completed, but we're still preforming ongoing testing and collecting results at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/Testing/UEFI . If you'd like to test, please add results to that page, rather than this one.

Pre-UDS testing: before UDS, we'd like to get as much testing done as possible. If you have access to a machine using EFI firmware (you can check by seeing if /sys/firmware/efi exists on your machine), then we'd appreciate some brief testing.

The test data we're looking for:

  1. Machine Basic identifying info (eg Intel Tunnel Mountain)

  2. UEFI Version Vendor and version (eg tiano core, v2.30)

      dmesg | grep "EFI v"
  1. CSM: Was CSM (legacy BIOS compatibility mode) enabled for this test run? (yes/know/don't know)

  2. Boot: Does it boot at all?

  3. Video: Do all of GRUB, plymouth and X display correctly?

  4. S3: sudo fwts s3 --s3-multiple=30

  5. S4: sudo fwts s4 --s4-multiple=30

  6. S5 (shutdown): sudo shutdown -P now

  7. Reboot: sudo reboot

If possible (especially if some of the above tests fail), record the fwts info:

  1. Memory layout: fwts memmapdump -

  2. EFI variables: sudo fwts uefidump

  3. MTRR config: sudo fwts mtrr

  4. Systab: sudo cat /sys/firmware/efi/systab

    • I expect ACPI20 *and* SMBIOS to be configured. SMBIOS (containing the DMI tables) can be also be verified

      using: sudo fwts smbios - and sudo fwts dmi_decode -

Testing should be done with and Oneric x86_64 image on USB. If possible, disable legacy BIOS compatibilty ("CSM") mode; this may be possible through the BIOS configuration screen, or you may be able to use a "CSM-off" build of your BIOS.

To install fwts in an Oneiric live USB image:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:firmware-testing-team/ppa-fwts-stable
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install fwts
