"Unrecognized option: UI" in v1.14

    XMLWordPrintable

Details

    Description

      Updated Jenkins and all plugins, including xvnc plugin to 1.14. Tests failed complaining couldn't connect to display.

      Console output of the setting up in jenkins showed complaint of invalid 'UI' arg passed to vnc server. The vnc log showed same complaint and usage info (RealVNC).

      Workaround was to revert back to the last version I'd used, 1.10

          I wonder if "UI" comes from "DART UI Fest", is that a directory name? I'll try to reproduce that. Meanwhile, you could try to change the dir name to something without spaces, and see if that helps.

          Good point. I assumed 'UI' was part of the plugin. 'DART UI Fest' is the project (and therefore workspace dir) name

          Changed project name to DART_UI_Fest with upgraded plugin (1.14) and worked fine. Hopefully a simple fix in there for you for next release and a simple new regression test case.

          Cheers, Brad

          Fixed in 1.16

          Fix is needed in vncserver script, where quotes should be added around the filename to xauthority file when xauth is called. Or spaces in job names should be avoided.
