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 installment of Fedora Test Day will focus on Virtualization in Fedora 18. Test cases will cover basic virtualization functionality, as well as tests for new features in Fedora 18.

Who's available

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

What's needed to test

Areas to test

News tests and features

FIXME: test cases coming soon

Previous test cases

Some test cases used in previous test days. Still useful to test for regressions!

General Virt

Spice

libvirt

Hotplug

virtio-scsi

libguestfs and tools

You will need Fedora 18 (host) and at least one guest (but the more the merrier).

Install libguestfs:

# yum install '*guestf*'

and run through the tests here: http://libguestfs.org/guestfs-testing.1.html

In Fedora 18, we are using libvirt to launch the appliance, and sVirt + SELinux to make everything much more secure. Therefore it's better (though not required) if you can run these tests with SELinux set to enforcing.

GuestOS compatibility

  • GuestOS compatibility
    — test installation of as many different guest operating system as as possible. (You will need a KVM bare metal host & lots of disk space)
