OTA-6 Call for Testing


  • Community

    This forum post is a companion to the OTA-6 call for testing blog post.

    Please post any general observations you have while testing the current image in the rc channel, as compared to OTA-5, in this thread.

    If you have any comments on any of the specific issues in the OTA-6 QA tracker, please post them in the issue thread so they are easier to track.

    This is not a place to request more bugs be added to the scope for this release. Morph is brand new and issues are expected, but we'll experience death by a thousand cuts if we allow adding "just one more thing" to the release again. We want to make sure that the bugs labeled as fixed are actually fixed so we can get improvements out to the Stable channel.



  • At first look (2018-W48 - Nexus 5):

    • Address Book - search not work;
    • Gallery - translations not updated;
    • Weather - translation not updated;
    • Indicator-keyboard - translation not updated.


  • @ierihon Moved your post to where it will most useful. Hope you don't mind.

    All OK. Thanks.



  • @unisuperbox Meizu Pro 5, running fine. Only ine problematic bug from browser, but not targeted in OTA-6. Excessively zoomed websites. Other then that, seems all stable. Thanks for hard work!



  • For me the main sticking point : It would be very fine if for OTA 6, using morph browser the problem(s) linked to input box could be solved or at least be able to put the cursor at the exact place we want with a keeping pressure on the keyboard. Doesn't work presently as far as i know.
    ****** If not targeted, sorry for the confusion on my part *****

  • Hello!
    I updated my BQ E5 HD with the version 24 (2018-W48).
    Today, my phone crashed at least 5 times. It happened sometime before the update, but not so often. I was listening music with the music app and doing another thing at the same time: mail checking by dekko or twitter via the twitter web app. It didn't append with the previous version (version 23).
    I saw improvements for the calendar and the browser, well done!
    Concerning this issue:
    "In some apps, dialog boxes will fly off the screen when the keyboard appears."
    I have the opposite behavior, especially when I receive a sms, the keybord fly off and I have to leave the discussion, sometime the app to get the keybord back.

    Today, my phone crashed at least 5 times. It happened sometime before the update, but not so often. I was listening music with the music app and doing another thing at the same time

    When this happens, does the phone go back to the "BQ" boot screen or return to the "Ubuntu Touch" loading screen? Also, can you send the contents of /var/log/syslog to a service like paste.ubuntu.com so I can take a look?

    the keybord fly off and I have to leave the discussion, sometime the app to get the keybord back

    Do you mean the keyboard continues off the top of the screen? If so, I've never seen that behavior. If the keyboard dismisses as normal but never comes back, that is related to https://github.com/ubports/ubuntu-touch/issues/595.

    It go back to the "Ubuntu Touch" loading screen a restart quicker than a complete reboot. I will give you the logs tomorrow.

    Ok, it is the second issue: the keybord dismisses and never comes back.

    Here are the logs:

    Tell me if it is enough.

    Thanks :o)



  • @teigneux if you only run one app, not several at the same time, does your phone crash?

    IMO 1Gb RAM devices can't handle more than 1 app open at a time, and even that with some care :)

    Search for the word "Killing" in your log and you'll see how your phone is running out of memory constantly.



  • There is this warning about certificate not trusted 0_1543500271424_screenshot20181129_140102622.png



  • Pardon my intrusion, @Teigneux maybe it's related to Increase swap space issue, which is discussed in other tread.

    Yes

    what? it worked well before. And not only with two apps. If i cannot listen music and read a sms at the same time, I will not longer use this system!

    Search for the word "Killing" in your log and you'll see how your phone is running out of memory constantly.

    I will check.



  • @jezek thanks, I will take a look. The phone is clearly slower than before, it should be a ram or a memory access issue.



  • Hm, I would like to join testing, but I cannot switch to rc channel.

    There is no channel switcher in the System Settings -> Updates -> Update Settings page. Is there other way to change the channel?

    It used to be there, I used flip to rc -> back to release to get OTA-5 update.



  • @kwah something is wrong in your phone then. You should be able to tap on "channels" in the "Update settings" page to select any channel you want.

    You can try to run this command in your device terminal sudo system-image-cli --switch 16.04/rc



  • Alarm clock is not trustable anymore, changed already in ubuntu 24. In ubuntu 26 w48 again it didn't ring and indicated just after turning on the screen. Phone was on charge, i checked the alarm time and turned actively off the screen in the evening. (clock app was opened when i turned the screen off)
    Something changed in the last updates, please check this.

    Yes, that log has exactly what I expected at line 125:

    Nov 28 17:02:32 ubuntu-phablet kernel: [10756.588033]Killing 'unity8' (2558), adj 10,
    Nov 28 17:02:32 ubuntu-phablet kernel: [10756.588038]   to free 113312kB on behalf of 'Thread (pooled)' (15633) because
    Nov 28 17:02:32 ubuntu-phablet kernel: [10756.588043]   cache 16288kB is below limit 16384kB for oom_score_adj 6
    Nov 28 17:02:32 ubuntu-phablet kernel: [10756.588048]   Free memory is -2764kB above reserved [gfp(0x200da)]
    

    This is definitely a memory problem which manifests heavily on devices with 1GB of RAM.
