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 new features in Gnome 3.8. Read more.

Who's available

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

Prerequisite for Test Day

  • bootable USB key or CD/DVD disk with latest Fedora 19 live image or:
  • machine or VM with updated Fedora 19

Known issues

  • There are two entries for the live image in the boot menu. This is a result of using a special non-debug kernel in the live image to make it run smoothly. I've no idea why it results in two entries on the boot menu, but never mind. Just use the one that's selected and it'll boot fine.
  • It's known that the system doesn't wake up properly from the idle time out screen blank / lock at present. On the live image, pressing 'Esc' should wake it up. On an installed system, you can only escape by restarting GNOME Shell from a console. See bug #923364. To avoid this inconvenience, you can disable screen blanking and locking from the Power and Privacy panels in the control panel.
  • If you have an Intel chipset system and find it freezes - possibly with a kernel trace visible - repeatedly during testing, try using the kernel parameter intel_pstate=disable. See bug #923102.
  • There are known to be several problems in submitting crashes via the 'abrt' automated reporting tool. If you need to report a crash, someone in #fedora-test-day should be able to help you to report it manually.

How to test?

This Test Day has two parts. First part is covered by test cases and it's focused on initial setup and getting you familiar with basic functionality. Second is exploratory testing when you are free to use software how do you like. Don't worry and try to break Gnome in various ways which you expect to work.

Update your machine

If you're running Fedora 19, make sure you have all the current updates for it installed, using the update manager. Or:

Live image

Optionally, you may download a non-destructive live image for your architecture. Tips on using a live image are available at FedoraLiveCD.

Warning (medium size).png
Installation not supported
The Test Day live image contains the Fedora installer, but Fedora 19 is in a very early (pre-Alpha!) state right now, so installing it is strongly discouraged on anything but a disposable test system. Additionally, testing suggests installation is broken on these particular Test Day images.

Software Rendering

Computers with obsolete graphics with buggy 3D drivers and VM hypervisors like KVM or VirtualBox don't have complete 3D support yet. But you can run Gnome Shell using software rendering (llvmpipe driver) on the CPU.

  • You may need to uninstall your GPU driver by running yum remove xorg-x11-drv-nouveau for example to force enable llvmpipe driver. You will need to restart X by logging out and back in for this to take effect.
  • Of lesser interest, but still worth checking, is whether GPUs already on the hardware blacklist work with their native driver instead. This can be checked by commenting out the appropriate entry from /usr/share/gnome-session/hardware-compatibility and logging out and back in to Gnome.
Important.png
Check if Xorg uses software rendering, run: glxinfo and check output for string: OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe (LLVM 0x300). Or you can check if you are using software rendering in the Control Center -> Details (llvmpipe)

Test Cases

GNOME Shell

System Settings

Online Accounts

Applications

Test Results

If you have problems with any of the tests, report a bug to Bugzilla for the appropriate component. 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 lines.

  1. In most cases, after "switch users" gdm displays just gray background with no user list.
  2. In most cases, gdm darkens display by ~50% for no reason. Darkened display prevails even in the started user session unless it is brightened manually (by shortcut. May be HW related, Asus K50IJ)
  3. When adding/removing user in the control center module, the root user disappears from the list. Can be added back by lock/unlock
  4. Unintuitive UI for adding keyboard layouts. No way to reorder keyborad layouts once added.
  5. 6. shotwell keeps opening on first screen
  6. Tap to click and two fingers scroll shall be enabled by default as using touchpad without these two features is a pain
  7. AVC denial message observed during gdm keyboard configuration "type=AVC msg=audit(1363951875.563:297): avc: denied { unlink } for pid=8414 comm="systemd-localed" name="00-keyboard.conf" dev="dm-0" ino=170071 scontext=system_u:system_r:systemd_localed_t:s0 tcontext=system_u:object_r:xserver_etc_t:s0 tclass=file" RHBZ #924776
