Arriving after the date above?
If you come to this page after the test day is completed, your testing of Radeon is still valuable, and you can use the information on this page to test Radeon with your graphics card and provide feedback. If you are visiting after the release of Fedora 19, please wait for the next Radeon test day.

Contents

What to test?

Today's Fedora Test Day will focus on the radeon driver for ATI/AMD Radeon graphics cards.

If you come to this page after the test day is completed, your testing is still valuable, and you can use the information on this page to test with your graphics card and provide feedback.

Who's available

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

What's needed to test

  • An ATI Radeon (or FireGL) graphics adapter. To confirm whether you have supporting hardware, run the following command under root:
    /sbin/lspci -d 1002: | grep -iq VGA && echo "Join Radeon Fedora Test Day" || echo "Sorry, no Radeon graphics hardware found."
  • An updated Fedora 19 pre-release, or the special live image (see below)

How to test?

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 you can use a live image:

Live image

Optionally, you may download a non-destructive Fedora 19 live image for your architecture. Tips on using a live image are available at FedoraLiveCD.

Testing

Basic

Elementary functionality tests, which should pass on supported GPU.

Desktop

Basic desktop usage scenarios, which should pass on supported GPU.

Video

Tests focused on different video playback acceleration features. Some older GPUs may not support XvBA.

3D applications/Games

Following applications has been carefully selected to test and exploit various OpenGL features using different rendering engines. If one applications test fails, next may work. Working HW 3D acceleration is needed.

Please file bugs for any failures you find if running these tests. But remember, crashes, rendering issues and glitches bugreports are more important then performance issues. Use your common sense and your knowledge about your GPU limits before reporting performance issues.

Experimental

Some recommended test cases for people, who likes trying new technology (Wayland, OpenCL) or who are interested in particular scenarios, eg. Steam, Wine.

  • Hybrid graphics You will need a laptop with two GPUs. Intel and ATI (PowerXpress) or Intel and nVidia (Optimus).
  • Steam
  • WebGL
  • Wine - Install 'wine' and try to play your favorite game. Important: Always check if your game is supported, visit: http://appdb.winehq.org Lot of bugs are actually Wine bugs, not related to GPU drivers, so be careful

Report your results

If you have problems with any of the tests, report a bug to Bugzilla usually for the component xorg-x11-drv-ati. If you are unsure about exactly how to file the report, just ask on IRC and we will help you. Follow the instructions on this page to ensure you include sufficient information in the report. Once you have completed the tests, add your results to the Results table below, following the example results from Example user 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 model of your graphics adapter. For each test case, use the result template to enter your result, as shown in the example result line. If you could not perform one test (for example, you cannot perform the more advanced tests because the basic one fails, or you cannot perform the multihead test as you have only one display), enter the word N/A. In the comments column, you can enter the model name and PCI device ID (vendor ID is usually 1002) of your card, if you know it - you can usually find this information in the output of the command lspci -nn.

Long notes
Please try to avoid leaving long comments in the table, it makes it difficult to read. If you need to explain an issue in detail, please file a bug, and link to the bug.
