Can't make the date?
If you come to this page before or after the test day is completed, your testing is still valuable, and you can use the information on this page to test, file any bugs you find at Bugzilla, and add your results to the results section. If this page is more than a month old when you arrive here, please check the current schedule and see if a similar but more recent Test Day is planned or has already happened.

What to test?

Today's installment of Fedora Test Day will focus on GNOME 3. This is the first of three Fedora 15 Test Days focusing on GNOME 3. The goal of these events is to test as much as possible of the functionality of GNOME 3 to ensure that it works correctly and provides the necessary basic features for a day-to-day usable desktop.

Warning (medium size).png
Big changes ahead
Remember, this ain't your momma's GNOME - the overall user experience of GNOME 3 is very different from GNOME 2. It's fine to ask about the changes and make feature requests, but before filing a bug on something that's 'missing' from GNOME 2, please ask in #fedora-test-day to make sure it's not an intended change. There should always be someone there who can answer your question. Thanks!

Who's available

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

Prerequisite for Test Day

Important.png
Smolt not working?
Smolt was broken in Rawhide until very recently. A fixed build is available and included in the Test Day live images. To upgrade Package-x-generic-16.pngsmolt in an installed Rawhide system, run:
mkdir smolttemp
cd smolttemp
koji download-build --arch noarch 216715
su -c 'yum localinstall smolt-1.4.3-2.fc15.noarch.rpm smolt-firstboot-1.4.3-2.fc15.noarch.rpm smolt-gui-1.4.3-2.fc15.noarch.rpm'
  • For most testing, a graphics adapter capable of compositing: we are aiming to support all NVIDIA GeForce adapters, all Intel adapters except for GMA 500 (Poulsbo) and pre-i915 (i8xx) adapters, and all ATI/AMD Radeon adapters. If you are using an unsupported adapter, you can still help us with fallback testing - see below.
Important.png
Unsupported adapters
Some adapters are known to be currently not working or problematic with the Shell. NVIDIA GeForce 400 series (Fermi / NVC0) adapters currently have no acceleration support and should fall back to compatibility mode (see the fallback testing section below). GeForce FX adapters may exhibit poor performance. Interaction may fail with GeForce 2 / GeForce 4 MX adapters, making the desktop effectively unusable.
Important.png
Shell will not work in VirtualBox or virt-manager / KVM
Virtual machines without 3D acceleration pass-through support will not be suitable for most testing: the Shell will not run in these configurations. Also, even though some VirtualBox editions have passthrough support, the current Fedora implementation does not support it, so Shell will not work in VirtualBox either. If you are using a virtual machine, you can still help us with fallback testing - see below.

Also helpful, if you have or can get them:

  • Additional displays (monitors, TVs...)
  • As many storage devices as you can access
  • Optical media (burned, commercially pressed, and blank burnable, CDs, DVDs and Blu-Rays)
  • Graphics adapters, virtual machines, or driver configurations not capable of compositing, to test fallback support (see below)

How to test?

As this event comes before the release of Fedora 15 Alpha, you will need a Rawhide installation or live image to perform the testing.

Live image

Important.png
Getting the right Live image
The live images for the Test Day are in progress. The x86_64 and i686 images are uploaded now, but please check the SHA256SUM is correct before booting! If you downloaded a nightly live image as linked from this page before the date of the Test Day, please discard it and test with the dedicated images linked below.

You may download a non-destructive Rawhide live image for your architecture. Tips on using a live image are available at FedoraLiveCD.

Architecture SHA256SUM
i686 European Mirror 7a64b577dbb59a2848d42536bccc2e278086ec0b3092e59f93cb6c9cb42f2426
x86_64 European Mirror efda505e3b9deb900116aa6249da293853cedbd1e596d83ae3b4dc5800b4a184

Post-live image updates

The following updates that fix known bugs are available beyond what is included in the live image:

Using the live image is the easiest way to participate in testing for most people, but alternatively you can:

Update your machine to Rawhide

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. For now, you will also need to add a repository definition to /etc/yum.repos.d for the Koji Rawhide repo and update using that, as Rawhide proper does not yet have all the necessary packages. You may need to remove some packages for the upgrade to proceed, and you should remove Package-x-generic-16.pngat-spi2-atk and all packages ibus-* as they cause significant issues (crash when typing in any GTK+ 3 application including the Shell itself, and inability to type in dialog boxes) if installed. Using the live image is easier and highly recommended.

Perform testing

Please perform as many of the test cases listed as you have the time and the resources to complete, and fill out your results in the table below. You do not need a Fedora account to fill in the table.

Fallback testing

This test case will test that GNOME falls back correctly to a 'classic' environment if your hardware does not support the GNOME Shell. If your hardware starts GNOME Shell correctly, please leave the fallback test column empty, and fill in the other test result columns. If your hardware is unable to start GNOME Shell, but falls back correctly to a classic environment, please mark the fallback test in the results table as 'pass', and leave the other test columns empty. If your hardware is unable to start GNOME Shell, and does not fall back correctly to a classic environment, please mark the fallback test in the results table as 'fail', file a bug against Package-x-generic-16.pnggnome-session, and leave the other test columns empty.

Regular tests

Unplanned testing

As well as running the formal test cases, you can help simply by running GNOME 3 and reporting any problems you come across in the course of your typical use, even if they do not match up with any of the test cases. Please remember, though, that just being different from GNOME 2 is not necessarily a problem, and check in #fedora-test-day before you file a bug.

NOTE: There are updated control-center packages if you experience crashes in the "Region and Language" panel

Test Results

If you have problems with any of the tests, try and report a bug. Most bugs in this event should be reported to GNOME Bugzilla. Bugs that are clearly issues in Fedora GNOME integration should be reported to Fedora Bugzilla. You will need an account to report bugs, but creating one is easy, and we will help you do this if you ask in IRC.

If you are not sure of the appropriate component, please check in IRC before filing, there are many possibilities. 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, use the result template to describe your result, following the examples in the Sample user row.

  1. 10. Mute did nothing. It doesn't work "normally" in gnome on my laptop - I had to map a different key for this action.
  2. https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=641360
  3. 9. Supports reordering of icons, but always adds as favorite on reordering. This is annoying. Bug/feature?.
  4. 5. If I change background, this dropdown is not visible. I have to close app and start it again to change options.
  5. When playing [video] video hanged

  1. no visual feedback for mute (like vol-up and vol-down have), I also would expect that second press of "mute" button will "unmute" sound, but it doesn't. Pressing "vol-up" or "vol-down" does it.
