Description

This test case tests whether basic X initialization is successful with the Intel video driver, with kernel mode setting enabled. You must be using a video adapter supported by the driver, and Fedora 11 or later (or Rawhide from any time after mid-February 2009).


How to test

  1. Ensure the 'nomodeset' kernel parameter is not enabled in your bootloader configuration
  2. Ensure the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf does not exist, or is a known-good configuration file that uses the 'intel' driver
  3. Shut your system down entirely, then start it up again

Expected Results

  1. (KMS) The boot process should be in graphical mode as soon as initrd has loaded (very shortly after the bootloader)
  2. (KMS) The boot process (and, later, X) should use the correct native resolution for your monitor
  3. (Plymouth) Progress animations should be displayed throughout boot, then cross-fade into the GDM login screen. If using the special live CD for the Test Day on this topic, Plymouth will not work, you will see a text-mode progress bar at the bottom of the screen, but it should be in native resolution
  4. (Plymouth) No flickering or mode changes should occur from initrd right through to GDM
  5. The system should boot successfully to the normal graphical login screen
