yes, I could do this with jenkins (with xdotool)

but I do have to, after having looked at my options, I think I want to go for testing isos first, simply because I test other Debian installations from isos too. (And there's a iso for every type of d-i test I do, but not a netboot.tar.gz...)


For that I will still have to patch the grub.cfg.

I'd like to mount the iso file, copy the files somewhere, patch them and mount from that "cd", I just don't know how to do this... basically my question is: how do I tell qemu to launch grub with that cfg?
