What to test?

Today's installment of Fedora Test Day will focus on widespread testing of Fedora Virtualization in general, with a particular emphasis on some:

Who's available

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

Prerequisite for Test Day

You will primarily be concerned with testing Fedora 11 as a virtualization host. You will need:

  • A fully updated Fedora 11 Rawhide machine. For information on installing and upgrading to rawhide, see Releases/Rawhide.
  • Hardware virtualization support (e.g. Intel VT or AMD-V). If not, you can still help with testing QEMU support.
  • At least one guest image installed before the test day.
  • Up to 10-20Gb free disk space. Guest images take up a lot of space.
  • To test device assignment, Intel VT-d or AMD IOMMU support.
  • To test kvm-autotest, DVD ISOs downloaded for Fedora 8
  • To test Fedora 11 guest installs, DVD ISOs downloaded for Fedora 11 Preview Release

How to test?

Jump on IRC, pick some areas to test from the table below, add yourself to the table and file bugs as you see them.

Coming soon ...
Stay tuned for test cases for each of the test areas.
