Description

This test case ensures the development release boots as a KVM guest in the latest stable release.

Setup

  1. Prepare a machine with the latest stable release (Fedora 21) installed
  2. Install Package-x-generic-16.pngvirt-manager (or other tool to control KVM virtual machines)

How to test

  1. Create a virtual machine and boot the current development release in it (use boot.iso, PXE or DVD.iso of Fedora 22). This can be accomplished using the virt-install command or by using the graphical utility virt-manager
  2. Hit run to boot the guest from the provided ISO disc
  3. Proceed with normal installation

Expected Results

  1. The installer successfully boots from the ISO image
  2. The installer is able to activate and use the virtual network device(s)
  3. The installer is able to activate and use the virtual storage device(s)
  4. The install completes successfully
  5. The system reboots successfully, recognizing filesystems created on the virt device(s)
