The following cast of characters will be available for testing, workarounds, bug fixes, and general discussion ...
- Development - Mark McLoughlin
- Quality Assurance -
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 test areas below for area specific requirements
