Setting up Selenium on Bamboo OnDemand

I followed the instructions on Confluence:

I placed the in /mnt/bamboo-ebs

I edited /mnt/bamboo-ebs/bin/ and added the following line



I created a snapshot

I added the custom capability (e.g. selenium=true) to the agent image

-------------------- IT DIDN'T WORK --------------

Nothing is added to the bamboo users home directory

looks like firefox etc has been installed - yum.log suggest so (Jan 04 08:37:29 Installed: firefox-3.6.26-1.el5.centos.i386).

But if I do a `which firefox` then, it shows up as /usr/bin/firefox - which has a created date feb 2012

If I look deeper, I can see updates to /usr/lib/firefox-3.6

Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong? Where can I see logs?

Thanks Lucas

Turns out that I had installed everything ok.. Our test code was the problem.

Hi Tony,

The "/usr/bin/firefox" may be a symlink to the real Firefox location. You can assure whether Firefox was correctly installed or not by the following command:

rpm -ql $(rpm -qa | grep -i firefox)

This will return where Firefox was installed.

I hope it helps!

Best regards,
Lucas Timm
