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.
The following cast of characters will be available testing, workarounds, bug fixes, and general discussion ...
- Development / general help - Daniel Berrange (danpb on FreeNode)
- Development / general help - Richard W.M. Jones (rwmjones on FreeNode)
- Development / general help - Cole Robinson (crobinso on FreeNode)
What's needed to test
- A fully updated Fedora 18 Beta machine.
- Hardware virtualization support (e.g. Intel VT or AMD-V) (see How_to_debug_Virtualization_problems#Is_My_Guest_Using_KVM.3F Is My Guest Using KVM?). 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.

libguestfs and tools
You will need Fedora 18 (host) and at least one guest (but the more the merrier).
# 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
— test installation of as many different guest operating system as as possible. (You will need a KVM bare metal host & lots of disk space)
