Prerequisite for Test Day

  • A system (real or virtual) you can install Fedora 41, and not mind if it breaks
  • A simple way to get podman 5.1 would be "sudo dnf install podman --enablerepo=updates-testing".
  • Ensure running " rpm -qa podman" gives "podman-5.1.0~rc1-1.fc41.x86_64"

How to test?

Install Fedora

Testing Podman from a live environment is difficult and will likely wind up with the system exhausting available RAM and failing in strange ways, so we recommend you install Fedora 41 for this TestDay, or Fedora 41 container using Podman 5.1

Update your machine

Run the tests

Visit the result page and click on the column title links to see the tests that need to be run: most column titles are links to a specific test case. Follow the instructions there, then enter your results by clicking the Enter result button for the test.

Reporting bugs

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