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.

Prepare Your System

Live image

Please check the SHA256SUM is correct before booting!

You may download a non-destructive pre-Fedora 17 live image for your architecture. Tips on using a live image are available at FedoraLiveCD.

Post-live image updates
If you are using the live image, please run this commands in terminal: su -c 'yum update' . Please logout and login again before you start testing.

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

Update your machine to Fedora 17

If you are already running or want to try the pre-release of Fedora 17, install Fedora 17 Alpha and then update to the latest packages.

Test Cases

Where to specify the language on live cd?
Since GDM currently has no language or session choosers, you need login to the system and select system->system settings, then choose the language either in User Accounts or Region and Language.

Nice to test

Bugs you might hit or additional situations that are nice to test:

Test Results

If you have problems with any of the tests, report a bug to Bugzilla usually for the component anaconda. 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 the test case you followed. Use the result template to enter your results in the third column, as shown in the example result line.
