Created attachment 660030 [details]

build log and emerge --info (compressed because it exceeds attachment limit, use 'xzless' to read it)

current tests are pretty basic and  for package maintainers mostly to sanety-check the kernels.

initrd assembled for test is built from host binaries, often compiled with -match=native (as I see in the flags)

but qemu, which runs the tests can't emulate some instructions in software mode, thus this test often fail.

it should work fine on systems/chroots where's no -march binaries/libraries copied into dracut.

dracut also supports --sysroot option, so tests could use unpacked arball with generic binaries as sysroot, but it's not implemented yet.

I'll leave this open for now.
