What to test?

Today's instalment of Fedora Test Day will focus on Fedora 13's disk management improvements.

If you come to this page after the test day is completed, your testing is still valuable, and you can use the information on this page to test with your system and provide feedback.

Who's available

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

What's needed to test

  • A computer with some hard disks. We're particularly interested in more 'exotic' configurations - LVMs, RAID, SAN, NAS, fibre channel, SCSI, whatever you've got
  • An updated Fedora 13 pre-release, Rawhide (tips on installing Rawhide below), or a nightly live image

How to test?

Update your machine

If you're running Fedora 13, make sure you have all the current updates for it installed, using the update manager. If you want to try Rawhide, 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. Live images can be found here.


Follow each of these test cases that are possible with the hardware you have available:

Report your results

If you have problems with any of the tests, report a bug to Bugzilla usually for the component udisks, or gnome-disk-utility for bugs in the Palimpsest graphical front end itself. If you are unsure about exactly how to file the report or what other information to include, just ask on IRC and we will help you. Once you have completed the tests, add your results to the Results table below, following the example results from the first line 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 the Smolt profile of the system you tested. 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 References column (as in the example line). For tests you could not perform, enter a dash.
