Can't make the date?
If you come to this page before or after the test day is completed, your testing is still valuable, and you can use the information on this page to test, file any bugs you find at Bugzilla, and add your results to the results section. If this page is more than a month old when you arrive here, please check the current schedule and see if a similar but more recent Test Day is planned or has already happened.

What to test?

Today's instalment of Fedora Test Day will focus on Fedora EC2 Images

Who's available

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

Prerequisite for Test Day

  • Free time
  • An Amazon EC2 account.
    • Note: If you do not have an EC2 account, you can contact Robyn (rbergero at fedoraproject dot org), or rbergeron on IRC (on freenode) to have temporary test day credentials issued to you.
  • Internet connectivity for connecting to EC2 images.
  • Standard Fedora repositories must be available.

How to test?

Test Day EC2 Images

Fedora EC2 images for test day are publicly accessible, but not broadly advertised. To launch an instance, log into the AWS Management Console.

  • Choose the EC2 tab.
  • In the left pane, select the US-East-1 region.
  • In the main window, select launch instance.
  • Click on the "Community AMIs" tab.
  • Enter one of the ami IDs below into the text box and follow the prompts to launch the image:
Region Architecture Root store AMI ID
us-east-1 i386 EBS-backed ami-2f69a446
us-east-1 x86_64 EBS-backed ami-d96ea3b0
us-west-1 i386 EBS-backed ami-6d4d1128
us-west-1 x86_64 EBS-backed ami-7f5a063a
eu-west-1 i386 EBS-backed ami-c4fbc9b0
eu-west-1 x86_64 EBS-backed ami-d6fbc9a2
ap-southeast-1 i386 EBS-backed ami-c01b6192
ap-southeast-1 x86_64 EBS-backed ami-201b6172
ap-northeast-1 i386 EBS-backed ami-e6bb0fe7
ap-northeast-1 x86_64 EBS-backed ami-32bb0f33

Testing the Images

  • Launch one of the mentioned AMIs on EC2.
  • Log in as 'ec2-user' using the ssh key you specified on launch
  • 'sudo yum update' (this should work without requiring a root password)
  • Is selinux enabled and functional?
  • Use yum to install a workload that you are familiar with, are there any problems installing standard F16 packages?

Test Results

If you have problems with any of the tests, report a bug to Bugzilla.

Need help?

If you are unsure about exactly how to file the report or what other information to include, just ask on IRC and we will help you. Once you have completed the tests, add your results to the Results table below, following the example results from the first line 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 the Smolt profile of the system you tested. For each test case, use the result template to enter your result, as shown in the example result line.
