  1. A correct checksum must be published for each official release image https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA:Testcase_Mediakit_ISO_Checksums
  2. There must be no file conflicts (cases where the files in some packages conflict but the packages have explicit Conflicts: tags are acceptable) or unresolved package dependencies during a media-based (DVD) install https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA:Testcase_Mediakit_Repoclosure https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA:Testcase_Mediakit_FileConflicts
  3. Where platform support exists, all dedicated installer images (except efidisk.img, which offers no options) must boot to the graphical boot menu and allow the user to select install options. If no option is selected, the installer should load after a reasonable timeout
  4. The installer must boot (if appropriate) and run on all primary architectures, with all system firmware types that are common on those architectures, from default live image, DVD, and boot.iso install media when written to an optical disc and when written to a USB stick with at least one of the officially supported methods
  5. The boot menu for all installation images should include an entry which causes both installation and the installed system to use a generic, highly compatible video driver (such as 'vesa'). This mechanism should work correctly, launching the installer and attempting to use the generic driver
  6. The installer must be able to use at least one of the HTTP or FTP remote package source options
  7. When booting from a DVD ISO image, the installer must be able to use the DVD local package source options
  8. The installer must be able to complete an installation using the text, graphical and VNC installation interfaces
  9. The installer must be able to install each of the release blocking desktops, as well as the minimal package set, with each supported installation method
  10. The installer must be able to complete an installation using any locally connected storage interface (e.g. PATA, SATA, SCSI etc...) with the default file system
  11. The installer must be able to complete an installation using automatic partitioning to any sufficiently large target disk, whether unformatted, empty, or containing any kind of existing data
  12. The installer must allow the user to select which of the disks connected to the system will be affected by the installation process. Disks not selected as installation targets must not be affected by the installation process in any way
  13. The rescue mode of the installer must start successfully and be able to detect and mount an existing default installation
  14. The installer must be able to download and use an installer update image from an HTTP server
  15. The installer must be able to report failures to Bugzilla and local disk, with appropriate information included
  16. In most cases (see Blocker_Bug_FAQ), a system installed according to any of the above criteria (or the appropriate Beta or Final criteria, when applying this criterion to those releases) must boot to the 'firstboot' utility on the first boot after installation, without unintended user intervention, unless the user explicitly chooses to boot in non-graphical mode. This includes correctly accessing any encrypted partitions when the correct passphrase is supplied. The firstboot utility must be able to create a working user account
  17. Following on from the previous criterion, after firstboot is completed and on subsequent boots, a system installed according to any of the above criteria (or the appropriate Beta or Final criteria, when applying this criterion to those releases) must boot to a working graphical environment without unintended user intervention. This includes correctly accessing any encrypted partitions when the correct passphrase is supplied
  18. When booting a system installed without a graphical environment, or when using a correct configuration setting to cause an installed system to boot in non-graphical mode, the system should boot to a state where it is possible to log in through at least one of the default virtual consoles
  19. It must be possible to run the default web browser and a terminal application from all release-blocking desktop environments. The web browser must be able to download files, load extensions, and log into FAS
  20. The installed system must be able to download and install updates with yum and the default graphical package manager in all release-blocking desktops
  21. The default desktop background must be different from that of the two previous stable releases
  22. Any component which prominently identifies a Fedora release version number, code name or phase (Alpha, Beta, Final) must do so correctly
  23. A system logging infrastructure must be available and enabled by default. It must provide at least basic local file-based logging of kernel messages, and allow other components to write log messages. This must be done in accordance with relevant standards accepted by the Project
  24. It must be possible to trigger a system shutdown using standard console commands, and the system must shut down in such a way that storage volumes (e.g. simple partitions, LVs and PVs, RAID arrays) are taken offline safely and the system's BIOS or EFI is correctly requested to power down the system
