Who's available

The following cast of characters will be available for testing, workarounds, bug fixes, and general discussion ...

Prerequisite for Test Day

  • Rawhide fully updated (some tips below). Remember, Rawhide is an unsupported development branch: use an installation you don't mind getting broken
  • FAS Account - you can create an account in 3 minutes if you don't have one
  • Selinux enabled. If you need to run in permissive mode please file a bug against selinux

no animals will be hurt during testing

How to test?

Update your machine to latest Rawhide or F10

See the instructions on the Rawhide page on the various ways in which you can install or update to Rawhide.

For encrypted root partitions, you have to use patched plymouth packages.

Installation

  • Install the Crash Catcher RPM package. Your browser should offer the option of installing the package when you click on it (Package will be provided later today)
  • Restart the computer to launch the daemon and load the necessary dbus configuration files
  • check if the daemon is really running, if not for some reason, run crash-catcher
  • run cc-applet (as an ordinary user)

Test

Follow the test case.

Results

  • If you found any bug (i.e. the test case does not complete as expected, or you encounter some buggy behaviour while carrying it out), then file a ticket via the Trac system on FedoraHosted
  • If you have suggestions, ideas or criticisms that are not simple bugs, send them to the crash-catcher mailing list
  • If you have questions or problems during the test process, please ask in the #fedora-qa IRC channel

Enjoy it!
