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 new features in Gnome 3.10. Read more.

Who's available

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

  • Development - Matthias Claasen (mclasen)
  • Quality Assurance - Lukáš Brabec (lbrabec), Jan Sedlák (garretraziel), Alexander Todorov (atodorov)

Prerequisite for Test Day

  • bootable USB key or CD/DVD disk with latest Fedora 20 live image or:
  • machine or VM with updated Fedora 20

Known issues

It is probable that you won't be able to connect to your Facebook account, it is considered as a server-side problem (GNOME #707747).

How to test?

This Test Day has two parts. First part is covered by test cases and it's focused on initial setup and getting you familiar with basic functionality. Second is exploratory testing when you are free to use software how do you like. Don't worry and try to break Gnome in various ways which you expect to work.

Update your machine

If you're running Fedora 20, make sure you have all the current updates for it installed, using the update manager. Or:

Live image

Optionally, you may download a non-destructive live image for your architecture. Tips on using a live image are available at FedoraLiveCD.

Software Rendering

Computers with obsolete graphics with buggy 3D drivers and VM hypervisors like KVM or VirtualBox don't have complete 3D support yet. But you can run Gnome Shell using software rendering (llvmpipe driver) on the CPU.

  • You may need to uninstall your GPU driver by running yum remove xorg-x11-drv-nouveau for example to force enable llvmpipe driver. You will need to restart X by logging out and back in for this to take effect.
  • Of lesser interest, but still worth checking, is whether GPUs already on the hardware blacklist work with their native driver instead. This can be checked by commenting out the appropriate entry from /usr/share/gnome-session/hardware-compatibility and logging out and back in to Gnome.

Check if Xorg uses software rendering, run: glxinfo and check output for string: OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe (LLVM 0x300). Or you can check if you are using software rendering in the Control Center -> Details (llvmpipe)

Test Results

If you have problems with any of the tests, report a bug to GNOME Bugzilla for the appropriate component. 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. For each test case, use the result template to enter your result, as shown in the example result lines.
