Things to test, roughly in dependency order:

* A fully updated Fedora 12 Rawhide machine.  See instructions below.

* Hardware virtualization support (e.g. Intel VT or AMD-V).  If unavailable, you can still help with testing QEMU support.

 +
* Up to 10-20Gb free disk space. Guest images take up a lot of space.
 +
* See the individual test area pages for specific requirements.
  
Perform each of the following test cases that you are able to with the resources available to you. Some of the tests depend on the others, so obviously if X fails to run with kernel mode setting for you, you will not be able meaningfully to test video playback or 3D application on top of KMS, for instance.

Testing requires the latest virtualization software included in Fedora Rawhide.  Update your system to the latest rawhide using one of the following techniques.
  
=== Report your results ===

If you have problems with any of the tests, report a bug to [http://bugzilla.redhat.com Bugzilla] usually for the component [https://bugzilla.redhat.com/enter_bug.cgi?product=Fedora&version=rawhide&component=xorg-x11-drv-intel xorg-x11-drv-intel]. If you are unsure about exactly how to file the report, just ask on IRC and we will help you. Follow the instructions on [[Xorg/Debugging|this page]] to ensure you include sufficient information in the report. Once you have completed the tests, add your results to the Results table below, following the example results as a template. The first column should be your name with a link to your User page in the Wiki if you have one, and the second should be a link to your Smolt hardware profile (see above for a link with instructions on submitting your hardware profile to Smolt). For each test case, if your system worked correctly, simply enter the word '''PASS'''. If you had trouble, enter the word '''FAIL''', with a footnote indicator, and put a link to the bug report in the comments column (as in the example line). If you could not perform one test (for example, you cannot perform the more advanced tests because the basic one fails, or you cannot perform the multihead test as you have only one display), enter the word '''N/A'''. In the comments column, you can enter the model name and PCI device ID (vendor ID is usually 8086) of your card, if you know it - you can usually find this information in the output of the command <tt>lspci -nn</tt>.
+
Note: if you are using the Live CD image, you will need to mount storage for guests either from the local disk or from NFS. If the latter, you will need to run <code>setsebool virt_use_nfs=on</code> in order for it to work with SELinux.

What to test?

Today's instalment of Fedora Test Day will focus on Virtualization improvements in Fedora 12. There is a large list of virtualization improvements coming in Fedora. To simplify things, testing will be divided up into a number of sections.

If you come to this page after the test day is completed, your testing is still valuable, and you can use the information on this page to test and provide feedback.

General Virt

KVM

libvirt

libguestfs, guestfish

Read more about this here: Features/libguestfs

Hardware Enablement

As Xen Guest (DomU)

What's needed to test

  • A fully updated Fedora 12 Rawhide machine. See instructions below.
  • Hardware virtualization support (e.g. Intel VT or AMD-V). If unavailable, you can still help with testing QEMU support.
  • At least one guest image installed before the test day (suggested reading - Virtualization_Quick_Start)
  • Up to 10-20Gb free disk space. Guest images take up a lot of space.
  • See the individual test area pages for specific requirements.

Prepare your system

Testing requires the latest virtualization software included in Fedora Rawhide. Update your system to the latest rawhide using one of the following techniques.

Note: if you are using the Live CD image, you will need to mount storage for guests either from the local disk or from NFS. If the latter, you will need to run setsebool virt_use_nfs=on in order for it to work with SELinux.
