What's needed to test

Use caution
Remember, rawhide is a development branch. Use an installation you don't mind getting broken.

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. Or:

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. And install to disc

Architecture MD5SUM
i386 f5852f27e324fb87f4d060abf44d16dc
x86_64 195e48300a94c65289ffdb20d4eeb2d4

Latest syslinux package?
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 upgrade to the latest syslinux package using
yum --enablerepo=rawhide update syslinux


Follow each of these test cases:

Report your results

  • For First two tests (Personal, Tuned): During each of the tests for additional information please run the following script [1] as root.
  • If you have problems with any of the tests, report a bug to Bugzilla.
  • If you are unsure about exactly how to file the report, just ask on IRC and we will help you. Once you have completed the tests, add your results to the Results table below.
  • The first column should be your name with a link to your User page in the Wiki if you have one
  • and the second should be a link to your Smolt hardware profile (see above for a link with instructions on submitting your hardware profile to Smolt).
  • For each test case, primarly see instruction in testcase (most of them generate some outoputs which is important, so please upload file into right column in table). Except test of bluetooth, there should be only PASS or FAIL (in case FAIL please report bug and add link)
  • Upload the files generated as you ran the test cases. You will get an error page after each file upload - don't worry, this is normal. After performing the upload, go to the File list page and you will see your upload at the top of the list. The URL to use when you add it to the table is the one labelled '(file)'.
