This test case tests Package-x-generic-16.pngkernel using the kernel regression test suite. For details about the test suite, see


  1. Ensure the Package-x-generic-16.pnggcc, Package-x-generic-16.pnggit and Package-x-generic-16.pngpython3-fedora packages are installed. For submission of test results make sure you have the package python3-fedora installed.
  2. $ sudo dnf install gcc git python3-fedora
  3. Clone the kernel-tests repository:
    $ git clone
  4. You need Package-x-generic-16.pngmake, Package-x-generic-16.pnglibtirpc, Package-x-generic-16.pnglibtirpc-devel and Package-x-generic-16.pngpolicycoreutils-python-utils in order to run the tests, if it is not already installed.
    $ sudo dnf install make libtirpc libtirpc-devel policycoreutils-python-utils
  5. Allow testsuite to make their heap memory executable
    $ sudo semanage boolean -m --on selinuxuser_execheap
  6. cd into the kernel-tests directory
    $ cd kernel-tests
  7. Configure automatic submission of the test results and your FAS username:
    $ cp config.example .config
    $ nano .config

    Look for the line with "submit=" and set it to "submit=anonymous". Optionally, if you use the proprietary Nvidia driver, look for the line "thirdparty=y" and uncomment it.
    Note: usually we would advise setting 'submit' to 'authenticated', but this is not working as intended. See this bug report. Submitting anonymously is the workaround for now.

How to test

  1. Run the default test suite:
    $ sudo ./
  2. Optionally, run the performance test suite:
    $ sudo ./ -t performance
  3. Turn SELinux boolean selinuxuser_execheap back to default state.
    $ sudo semanage boolean -m --off selinuxuser_execheap

Expected Results

  1. Both runs of the test suite should result in PASS.
