[http://testdays.qa.fedoraproject.org/testdays/show_event?event_id=10 '''This page'''] provides a list of the tests to run, and lets you report your results. Clicking on a test name will show you the instructions for doing that test, and clicking 'Enter result' will let you enter your result for that test. For the ''Hardware name'', please enter the model number for your graphics adapter as precisely as you can. You can use the {{command|lspci -nn | grep VGA}} command to provide the PCI ID, if you are comfortable doing so.

''Basic'' tests are elementary functionality tests, expected to pass on all supported adapters. ''Desktop'' tests cover key desktop functions and again should work on all supported adapters. ''Video'' tests cover video playback: some functions may not be supported on older adapters. ''3D'' tests cover more advanced 3D functionality; some more advanced tests may fail on hardware that is not yet fully supported. Crashes, rendering issues and glitches bugreports are more important then performance issues. ''Experimental'' tests cover more unusual and experimental functionality.

=== Report your results ===
 
 
 
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=20&component=xorg-x11-drv-ati 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 [[Xorg/Debugging|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 <tt>lspci -nn</tt>.

DATE TIME WHERE
2013-10-23 ALL DAY #fedora-test-day webchat

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...

  • Development -
  • Quality Assurance -

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 20 pre-release, or the special live image (see below)

How to test?

Update your machine

If you're running Fedora 20, make sure you have all the current updates for it installed, using the update manager (and with the updates-testing repository enabled). Or you can use a live image:

Live image

Optionally, you may download a non-destructive Fedora 20 live image for your architecture. Tips on using a live image are available at FedoraLiveCD.

Testing

This page provides a list of the tests to run, and lets you report your results. Clicking on a test name will show you the instructions for doing that test, and clicking 'Enter result' will let you enter your result for that test. For the Hardware name, please enter the model number for your graphics adapter as precisely as you can. You can use the lspci -nn command to provide the PCI ID, if you are comfortable doing so.

Don't feel obliged to complete all the tests! They are listed in approximate order of importance, so if you only have time to do a few, start with the first section and work your way down. It's fine to skip any tests you can't complete, or aren't sure you understand - or you can ask in IRC for help.

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.

Basic tests are elementary functionality tests, expected to pass on all supported adapters. Desktop tests cover key desktop functions and again should work on all supported adapters. Video tests cover video playback: some functions may not be supported on older adapters. 3D tests cover more advanced 3D functionality; some more advanced tests may fail on hardware that is not yet fully supported. Crashes, rendering issues and glitches bugreports are more important then performance issues. Experimental tests cover more unusual and experimental functionality.
