Summary0005096: Tripwire unhappy with Selenium
DescriptionThe combo Selenium 3.4.3, chromedriver 2.29, chromium 59 on Tripwire, does not work. Nonetheless, Selenium does work on my local system with older versions of the three actors.

Those old working versions of mine are from the oldstable.

It crashes with the following message:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "wallet-webex/selenium/", line 322, in <module>
    ret = client_setup(args)
  File "wallet-webex/selenium/", line 49, in client_setup
    client = webdriver.Chrome(desired_capabilities=cap)

    self.start_session(desired_capabilities, browser_profile)
  File "/usr/local/lib/python3.5/dist-packages/selenium/webdriver/remote/", line 188, in start_session

selenium.common.exceptions.WebDriverException: Message: chrome not reachable
  (Driver info: chromedriver=2.29 (undefined),platform=Linux 4.7.0-1-amd64 x86_64)

Yes, PATH was correctly set to include /usr/lib/chromium.

Does someone really want to install software from oldstable?

Do we know what the result is with stable/testing/unstable? I'd rather go forward than backward.

Today Tripwire likes it, all the time. So I'm changing the status to 'feedback'. Some did upgrade packages in the system?

Ok, got the error again. I got it this way:

(1) if the test is launched manually (*), then it passes.

(2) if the test is launched by the script launch_selenium_test (**), then the test hangs

(3) once the test hangs from (2), then the manual invocation fails too.

(*) python3 path/to/wallet-webex/selenium/ --ext-unpacked=path/to/compiled/wallet-webex
(**) from deployment.git

44c9293 (@deployment.git) fixed this bug; the wallet was compiled with 'tsc' which was presumably generating a "wrong" extension.

Worth noting: using 'ulimit -v 4000000' also makes the test fail! This time it happens when the test waits for the pay button to be clickable
upon paying for an article.

Fixed wiht ulimit -v 6000000. However, why does it want this much memory? It's more than 5GB ...
