Description

This test case logs the results of a basic 'rendercheck' test on the nouveau driver. You must be using a card supported by the nouveau video driver.

Setup

  1. Ensure the 'nomodeset' and 'nouveau.modeset=0' kernel parameters are not set in your bootloader configuration
    • You can see your current kernel options by running cat /proc/cmdline
  2. Ensure the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf does not exist, or is a valid file that uses the nouveau driver
  3. Shut your system down entirely, then start it up again
  4. If using a live image to test, ignore the above steps and simply boot the system from the live image with default options
  5. Ensure the rendercheck tool is available. If you are using the Test Day live CD it will be available automatically. For other situations a package is available here

How to test

  1. From a console, run the following command: rendercheck -t fill,dcoords,scoords,mcoords,tscoords,tmcoords,blend,composite -f a8r8g8b8,x8r8g8b8,a8 > renderchecklog
  2. It will take some time - from 15 minutes to several hours - to complete (it is complete when it returns to a prompt). When it does, compress the resulting renderchecklog file (e.g. gzip renderchecklog) and upload it to the Wiki via the Upload file link in the left hand link bar
  3. Add a link to your upload in the appropriate box in the Wiki page Test Results section

Expected Results

  1. The renderchecklog file should contain a record of the complete rendercheck session
