From Fedora Project Wiki

This page is intended to record Fedora 11 Installation test results for the Fedora 11 RC3 milestone.

Latest Release Candidate?
If adding new test results, please refer to QA:Fedora_11_RC4_Install_Test_Results.


What To Test

This page tracks test results against Fedora 11 Release Candidate 3 builds. Test results against earlier Fedora 11 milestones can be found at.

Testing with Releases/Rawhide is recommended for tests that do not require the use of physical media (e.g. DVD or CD images).

Physical media can be found at

Delta ISOs from Preview and RC2 for i586 and x86-64 are also available: see this post.

Posting Test Results

Want to share information about something you tested?

  1. Select a test case that best matches your test environment.
  2. Edit this page adding your test result for the architecture tested: i386, x86_64 or ppc
  3. If a defect occurs, add a link to the reported bug using the syntax: <ref>[[rhbug:12345]] - failure to detect foo</ref>
One install, multiple results
One install may successfully execute multiple test cases. For example, booting a DVD to perform a DVD upgrade from the previous Fedora release actually executes 3 tests:
  1. QA/TestCases/BootMethodsDvd
  2. QA/TestCases/InstallSourceDvd
  3. QA:Testcase_Anaconda_Upgrade_New_Bootloader

Add or Remove a Test Case

  1. Please request review for your changes by publishing your test case for review to fedora-test-list.
  2. Once reviewed, make your changes to this document
  3. Finally, update QA:Fedora 11 Install Results Template with the same changes.


Please use the following format when posting results to this page
