What to test?
Today's instalment of Fedora Test Day will focus on the MDraid
The following cast of characters will be available for testing, workarounds, bug fixes, and general discussion.
What's needed to test
- An NVIDIA graphics adapter. To confirm whether you have supporting hardware, run the following command:
/sbin/lspci -d 10de: | grep -iq VGA && echo "Join Nouveau Fedora Test Day" || echo "No nVidia graphics hardware found."
- Rawhide (tips on installing Rawhide below), or the live CD available for this test day (again see below).
- Your hardware profile uploaded to Smolt according to these instructions
- Make sure to back up your existing xorg.conf file, if you have one, so you can recover if the nouveau driver causes you trouble
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:
Follow each of these test cases:
- QA:Testcase_nouveau_rendercheck (requires 15 minutes)
Multihead test case:
You will need two or more monitors to perform the multihead test.
Report your results
If you have problems with any of the tests, report a bug to Bugzilla usually for the component xorg-x11-drv-nouveau. If you are unsure about exactly how to file the report, just ask on IRC and we will help you. Follow the instructions on this page to ensure you include sufficient information in the report. Once you have completed the tests, add your results to the Results table below, following the example results from Adam Williamson as a template. 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, with a footnote indicator, and put a link to the bug report in the comments column (as in the example line). 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, you can enter the model name and PCI device ID (vendor ID is usually 10DE) of your card, if you know it - you can usually find this information in the output of the command lspci -nn.
