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.

What to test?

Today's instalment of Fedora Test Day will focus on Jenkins. Read more

Who's available

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

Prerequisite for Test Day

Either of following:

  • bootable USB key or CD/DVD disk with latest Fedora 21 live image
  • machine or VM with updated Fedora 21

Known issues

  1. Fedora doesn't yet have all core plugins which come by default with upstream Jenkins (rhbz#1147838)
  2. Attempt to download jenkins-cli.jar or slaves.jar from http://localhost:8080/jnlpJars/jenkins-cli.jar ends with "ERROR 500: Server Error" (rhbz#1147831)
  3. /var/log/jenkins/jenkins.log contains error message "SEVERE: Failed Inspecting plugin /var/lib/jenkins/plugins/jenkins-icon-shim.jpi due to bug in jenkins-icon-shim package (rhbz#1147821)
  4. JENKINS_HOME is owned by root (rhbz#1147846)
  5. Building of "Maven project" always ends with exception (rhbz#1147899)
  6. Jenkins doesn't handle plugins from RPM very well (rhbz#1147902, rhbz#1147908)

How to test?

There are two options. Either you can stick with prepared test cases (below), or you can simply try to use Jenkins and experiment. The second option is probably better for people already familiar with Jenkins. In either case, please report all bugs in, component "jenkins". Please always attach Jenkins log file /var/log/jenkins/jenkins.log, if possible. Thanks.

Update your machine

If you're running Fedora 21, make sure you have all the current updates for it installed, using the update manager. Also please make sure that you have latest Jenkins and its dependencies installed. Latest version in Fedora repositories is 1.581:

su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing jenkins-javadoc-plugin-1.2-1.fc21 jenkins-junit-plugin-1.1-1.fc21 jenkins-external-monitor-job-plugin-1.2-1.fc21 jenkins-ant-plugin-1.2-1.fc21 jenkins-executable-war-1.29-3.fc21 jenkins-mailer-plugin-1.11-1.fc21 js-yui2-2.9.0-6.fc21 stapler-adjunct-timeline-1.4-3.fc21 jenkins-1.581-2.fc21'

Live image

The live images are suitable for writing to a USB stick or to a DVD media. They can be used for installing Fedora from scratch, and may also be used to test Fedora directly from the USB stick / DVD media without writing anything to your hard drive. More information on how to use the images is available at FedoraLiveCD.
