This page is intended to record QA/TestPlans/Fedora12Install test results for the FIXME milestone.


What To Test

This page tracks test results against Fedora 12 Release Candidate builds. Test results against earlier Fedora 12 milestones can be found at Releases/12/Schedule.

Testing with Releases/Rawhide is recommended for tests that do not require the use of physical media (e.g. DVD or CD images).

Physical media can be found at FIXME

This is the explanation of priority for test cases.

Tier1 is intended to verify that installation is possible on common hardware using common use cases. Verification includes:

  • Common boot media
  • Common Installation source
  • Installation using defaults installation options
  • Default Partitioning

Tier2 takes a step further to include more use cases. Tier2 verification consists of:

  • All boot media
  • All installation sources
  • All kickstart delivery methods
  • Some architecture specific verification

Tier3 captures the remaining identified use cases:

  • More exhaustive partitioning schemes
  • More complex networking scenarios
  • More architecture specific verification
  • Network device
  • Storage device
  • Upgrade testing
