Atlassian advises the following approach:

Follow the instructions for setting up selenium but use the following script as part of instead :



cat >/etc/yum.repos.d/centos-$centosVersion.repo <<EOF
name=CentOS - Base

name=CentOS - Updates


yum -y --enablerepo=centos-base install firefox

yum -y install xorg-x11-server-Xvfb xterm xorg-x11-server-utils xorg-x11-fonts-ISO8859-1-75dpi xorg-x11-fonts-Type1

/usr/bin/killall Xvfb

#Start virtual screen
Xvfb :100 -ac -screen 0 1024x768x24 &

echo "export DISPLAY=:100.0" >> /home/bamboo/.bashrc

source /home/bamboo/.bashrc

At the moment the bamboo studio standard AMI cannot run selenium/webdriver tests because firefox does not start up and the test times out. see
