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.

Verification
Please check the SHA256SUM is correct before booting!

You may download a non-destructive pre-Fedora 18 live image for your architecture. Tips on using a live image are available at FedoraLiveCD.

Architecture SHA256SUM

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

Update your machine to Fedora 18

If you have already installed Fedora 18 prerelease, update to the latest packages.

Perform testing

Boot latest Fedora 18 into KDE 4.9 Plasma Workspaces.

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.

Regular tests

Here is the list of regular test. Some tests are optional as requires non-default settings and it's more difficult to set it up. The tests are divided into the four categories.

Basic desktop usage:

Hardware integration:

Essential apps:

  • kdepim
  • calligra
  • kde-telepathy
  • apper

Other features:

Tests without a test case are more freeform tests - try the basic usage and let us know on IRC. The tests are not limited on these proposed, feel free to contact us with any problem you encountered during the Test Day (and even after Test Day on #fedora-kde channel).

Unplanned testing

As well as running the formal test cases, you can help simply by running KDE 4 Plasma Workspaces and reporting any problems you come across in the course of your typical usage of desktop, even if this does not match up with any of the test cases. If you are unsure to what any discovered problem relates, please check in #fedora-test-day before you file a bug.

Test Results

If you have problems with any of the tests, try and report a bug. Bugs clearly related to KDE Plasma Workspaces and it's rendering should be reported to KDE Bugzilla. Bugs that are clearly issues in Fedora KDE integration should be reported to Fedora Bugzilla. If you are unsure, please report into Fedora Bugzilla or ask on #fedora-test-day or #fedora-qa. 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. If you are running Fedora in VM, please, at least state the name of VM hypervisor(kvm/VirtualBox...). However uploading Smolt profile is useful even for VMs. For each test case, use the result template to describe your result, following the examples in the Sample user row.
