What to test?

This week's instalment of Fedora Test Day will focus on:

Preparing for Test Day

Depending on the speed of your connection and the time available for testing, there are several methods available for

Live Images

  1. Please download a live ISO image for your architecture:
  2. Prepare your live image by following the instructions at FedoraLiveCD
  3. Or run the dowloaded ISO image in qemu:
     su -c 'qemu -cdrom Fedora-10-Beta-i686-Live.iso -m 512 -std-vga'

Install Media

  1. Consult the installation guide for quick start information to determine the best install method for your needs.
  2. Follow instructions for installing your system.
    • Alternatively, on an already installed system:
      1. Install snake:
        yum install snake
      2. Configure your system for installation:

How to test?

A wiki test results page for Live Images is in progress. Once completed, please add your findings and discuss any issues or concerns on IRC #fedora-qa.

Test anaconda networking boot parameters (details at Anaconda/Options):

  • ksdevice=
  • ks=
  • ip=

Test that networking data results match when doing graphical and/or text installs:

  • static IP
  • dynamic IP
  • ipv6?

Test network-based installs when booting from:

When booting a system via PXE:

  • networking is brought up in stage 1 and the source should be found just fine in stage 2

When booting via a boot.iso,

  • networking isn't brought up until stage 2.

Does updates= auto select networking or prompt?

Does ks= prompt for networking or auto select the "right" network?

Need help?

We'll have a host of QA and Development characters hanging out discussing bugs (aka "features"), expectations, and test areas. I've included details below for how you can contribute below.

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