Description

This test case tests whether any automatic error catching systems report errors in a typical system boot.


How to test

  1. Boot a clean live image of the Fedora version you wish to test
  2. Note whether any errors are reported by the default automatic error reporting tools (as of Fedora 12, these are abrt and SELinux's setroubleshoot)
  3. Perform a default installation from the live image (changing no options and entering typical information into free text fields)
  4. Boot the installed system and again check whether there are any errors reported by automatic tools
  5. Install from a DVD image of the Fedora version you wish to test, completely replacing the previous installation
  6. Boot the installed system and check once more for errors reported by automatic tools

Expected Results

  1. No errors should be reported by automatic error checking tools whether booting live, booting a system installed from a live image, or booting a system installed from the DVD image
