Description

This test case tests whether basic X initialization is successful with the Nouveau driver.


How to test

  1. Ensure the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf does not exist, or is a valid file that uses the nouveau driver. If you are using the live image, ignore this step
  2. Shut your system down entirely, then start it up again
  3. If using the Test Day live CD, just boot from the live CD, ignoring the above steps
  4. Observe whether the system successfully reaches the graphical login screen

Expected Results

  1. The system should boot successfully to the normal graphical login screen, at the optimal resolution for your monitor, with no graphical artifacts (missing cursor, wrong colors etc)
