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 NetworkManager. For Fedora 23, we update it to a new stable release, including a lots of fixes and a handful of new features. Let's make sure we didn't miss out regress anywhere and NetworkManager is easy and flawless to use.

Who's available

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

Prerequisite for Test Day

Latest NetworkManager 1.0.6 snapshot (NetworkManager-1.0.6-0.2.20150813git7e2caa2.fc23) is needed

Testing in various setups is welcome, may require additional setups, e.g.:

  • IPv6-enabled and legacy-free networks (no IPv4)
  • Wireless access points with various security mechanisms (WPA, WEP, ...)
  • Multiple links to the same network, wireless & wired
  • Server setups, bonding, teaming, bridging, vlans (possibly stacked)
  • Other tools that namange networking installed for testing interoperability: libvirt, Docker, VMWare, VirtualBox, systemd-networkd, ...
  • A Mobile broadband connectivity dongle
  • Bluetooth DUN & PAN enabled dongle or a phone
  • VPN servers, concentrators
  • Different desktop environemnts installed, to test integration: GNOME, KDE, Xfce, ...

How to test?

Install a suitable Fedora 23 snapshot and verify that networking works fine for you. You may follow the test cases below.

If you discover a bug, you might be asked to raise your logging level in NetworkManager.conf or with nmcli so that we could get a trace of what went wrong.

Test Cases

You're encouraged to test whichever setups you're generally using and let us know how well does the new NetworkManager works for you.

Here's some existing test plans that may help you with deciding what to test:

Wireless
