== How To Test ==

Testing will require using a system running [[Releases/Rawhide|Rawhide]].  There are several methods available for updating your system to rawhide.  The following sections outline two methods.
 +
 
 +
=== Download Media ===
 +
 
 +
Some tests will require that you download a <code>boot.iso</code> from [[Releases/Rawhide|Rawhide]] or [http://fedoraproject.org/en/get-prerelease F-11-Beta] for your architecture.

=== Update your machine ===
+
=== Testing ===
  
See the instructions on the [[Releases/Rawhide|Rawhide]] page on the various ways in which you can install or update to Rawhide.
+
Perform each of the following test cases:
  
=== Live Image ===
+
''' Boot tests'''
  
Optionally, you may download a non-destructive rawhide live image for your architecture:
+
The following tests do not depend on having a running Beta or rawhide system.  They need only boot media (or PXE), whose images can be downloaded from daily rawhide, for instance.  In the case of Apple Macintosh hardware with Intel CPU, this is good because it is difficult to complete a successful install of Fedora 11 Beta; for instance: BZ 444490 or 494390.

If you have problems with any of the tests, report a bug to [https://bugzilla.redhat.com/enter_bug.cgi?product=Fedora&component=uefi&version=rawhide&short_desc=%5BUEFI%20Test%20Day%5D&cf_qa_whiteboard=TestDay 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, if your system worked correctly, simply enter the word '''PASS'''. If you had trouble, enter the word '''FAIL''', as a link to the bug report for the failure. If you could not perform one test (for example, you cannot perform the more advanced tests because the basic one fails, or you cannot perform the multihead test as you have only one display), enter the word '''N/A'''.  In the comments column, enter any additional information that is related to your testing.
  
Perform each of the following test cases that you are able to with the resources available to you.

What to test?[edit]

Today's installment of Fedora Test Day will focus on Features/EFI. The objective is to verify that affected components (ie, grub, kernel, efibootmgr) provide the expected UEFI functionality on appropriate hardware (ie, it locates devices, installs, and boots). Fedora 11's UEFI 2.1 implementation has been tested on Intel UEFI-capable systems only; those with access to other vendors UEFI-capable systems are actively solicited to validate their hardware.

Supported Architectures currently are X86 and X86_64. No Fedora 11 compose of IA64 is available.

Who's available[edit]

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

What's Needed To Test[edit]

Optional but recommended for testing Features/EFI:

  • FAS Account - you can create an account in 3 minutes if you don't have one. This account lets you make non-anonymous contributions to the Fedora wiki.
  • Your hardware profile uploaded to Smolt according to these instructions

Rawhide is raw
Rawhide is a development branch of Fedora. While changes to Fedora post-beta are limited, it is advised you back up your data before participating.

How To Test[edit]

Testing will require using a system running Rawhide. There are several methods available for updating your system to rawhide. The following sections outline two methods.

Download Media[edit]

Some tests will require that you download a boot.iso from Rawhide or F-11-Beta for your architecture.

Rawhide Fedora 11 Beta
i386 i386
x86_64 x86_64

Alternatively, you may download a efidisk.img from Rawhide or F-11-Beta for your architecture.

Rawhide Fedora 11 Beta
i386 i386
x86_64 x86_64

Testing[edit]

Perform each of the following test cases:

Boot tests

The following tests do not depend on having a running Beta or rawhide system. They need only boot media (or PXE), whose images can be downloaded from daily rawhide, for instance. In the case of Apple Macintosh hardware with Intel CPU, this is good because it is difficult to complete a successful install of Fedora 11 Beta; for instance: BZ 444490 or 494390.

  1. QA:Testcase_UEFI_boot.iso
  2. QA:Testcase_efidisk.img
  3. QA:Testcase_UEFI_pxeboot
  4. QA:Testcase_2TB_Storage_Device
  5. QA:Testcase_At_Least_10_Storage_Devices
Note.png
Updates required
Due to a bug in anaconda, the use of an updates image is required to complete an installation. Anaconda fixes for UEFI testing will be added to http://clumens.fedorapeople.org/updates.img. To use the updates.img, you must boot with the following option:
updates=http://clumens.fedorapeople.org/updates.img

Report your results[edit]

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.

Note.png
NDA Hardware?
If testing on hardware not yet released, you may desire to set the appropriate confidential privacy flag on your bug.

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, if your system worked correctly, simply enter the word PASS. If you had trouble, enter the word FAIL, as a link to the bug report for the failure. If you could not perform one test (for example, you cannot perform the more advanced tests because the basic one fails, or you cannot perform the multihead test as you have only one display), enter the word N/A. In the comments column, enter any additional information that is related to your testing.
