Today's instalment of Fedora Test Day will focus on Gnome Boxes. Gnome Boxes is intuitive application for managing virtual machines targeted towards typical desktop end-users, who just want to automatically install and run different operating systems on their hosts. Gnome Boxes is focused on usability and out of the box user experience with very little input from user.

Construct a table or list to allow testers to post results.  Each column should be a test case or configuration, and each row should consist of test results. Include some instructions on how to report bugs, and any special instructions. Here's an example, from a Palimpsest test day:
+
{{admon/important|Resources|Unless hosts are very powerful, you should not have more than 2 boxes running at a time.}}
  
If you have problems with any of the tests, report a bug to [https://bugzilla.redhat.com Bugzilla] usually for the component [https://bugzilla.redhat.com/enter_bug.cgi?product=Fedora&version=13&component=udisks udisks], or [https://bugzilla.redhat.com/enter_bug.cgi?product=Fedora&version=13&component=gnome-disk-utility 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, use the [[Template:result|result template]] to enter your result, as shown in the example result line.

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.

Contents

What to test?

Today's instalment of Fedora Test Day will focus on Gnome Boxes. Gnome Boxes is intuitive application for managing virtual machines targeted towards typical desktop end-users, who just want to automatically install and run different operating systems on their hosts. Gnome Boxes is focused on usability and out of the box user experience with very little input from user.

Who's available

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

Prerequisite for Test Day

  • CPU supporting virtualization, check using this command: egrep '(vmx|svm)' /proc/cpuinfo If you don't get vmx or svm in output, check if virtualization is enabled in BIOS.
  • Free space on HD
  • Various operating systems installation ISOs, CD/DVDs and USB sticks:
    • Fedora 16 and 17
    • Windows XP and 7
    • Debian, Ubuntu etc.
  • Copy ISOs to Download directory in your home.

How to test?

Install latest Fedora 17 prerelease

Update system
  • After you install Fedora 17 prerelease, make sure you have all the current updates for it installed, using the update manager or running yum update on installed system.

Install Gnome Boxes

Install Gnome Boxes by running: yum install --enablerepo=updates-testing gnome-boxes on installed system.

Test Cases

Important.png
SELinux
You need to switch SELinux on host to Permissive mode using command setenforce 0 after each boot.
Important.png
Resources
Unless hosts are very powerful, you should not have more than 2 boxes running at a time.

Test Results

If you have problems with any of the tests, report a bug to Gnome Bugzilla usually for the component gnome-boxes, or to RedHat Bugzilla for the component gnome-boxes for Fedora specific bugs (installer, integration, etc.). 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 enter your result, as shown in the example result line.
