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 livecd-tools and creating a Fedora USB installation stick via the command-line with livecd-tools' livecd-iso-to-disk on Fedora 16, 17, and with liveusb-creator on Fedora and Windows.

Who's available

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

  • A Fedora 16/17 installation. (or a windows installation)
  • Time
  • Usb key(s)
  • ISO images of latest Fedora 17 beta. ISO images are here

How to test?

 qemu -hda /dev/sdX  # add "-m 1G", for example, to fully boot vs just test that it will boot at all
