What to test?

Today's instalment of Fedora Test Day will focus on:

  • Xfce 4.6 (in Rawhide).

Who's available

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

What's needed to test

  • Rawhide (tips on installing Rawhide below), or the live CD available for this test day (again see below).
  • Xfce installed (yum install @XFCE)
  • For the Fedora 10 to 11 upgrade test case, Fedora 10 with Xfce installed and updated to latest Fedora 10 update status
no animals will be hurt during testing

How to test

Update your machine

See the instructions on the Rawhide page on the various ways in which you can install or update to Rawhide.

Live Image

Optionally, you may download a non-destructive rawhide live image for your architecture:

Tips on using a live image are available at FedoraLiveCD.

Note: Creating a LiveUSB of this rawhide image requires the latest version of syslinux, which is currently available in Rawhide and in the latest Windows liveusb-creator. Users of F10 and below can yum --enablerepo=rawhide update syslinux


There is one specific test case: Fedora 10 to 11 upgrade for Xfce. This tests upgrading from Fedora 10 to Fedora 11 with Xfce installed. Please perform this test if you can.

Beyond this, please just install Xfce on Rawhide - yum install @XFCE - and check that everything within Xfce you expect to work, does work. In particular, check that all the configuration applets work correctly. As it's fairly obvious how to test these, we decided not to include specific test cases for each applet; just run each one, and check that changing the settings has the intended effect. If you find any problems, please say so in the IRC chat session.
