[edit] Test Cases

[edit] Test Results

If you have problems with any of the tests, report a bug to Bugzilla usually for the component preupgrade. If you are unsure about exactly how to file the report or what information to include, just ask on IRC and we will help you. Once you have completed the tests, add your results to the Results table below, following the example results from the first line as a template. The first column should be your name with a link to your User page in the Wiki if you have one, and the second should describe the hardware (monitor, and optionally printer, scanner and colorimeter) you used to test. For each test case, if your system worked correctly, simply enter the word {{result|pass}}. If you had trouble, enter the word {{result|warn}}<ref>xxx</ref> or {{result|fail|bug number}}, with a footnote indicator, and put a link to the bug report in the References column (as in the example line). For tests you could not perform, enter a dash.

  1. VM ran out of space in /var/cache/yum; preupgrade correctly detected this; retry with a larger VM succeeded
  2. 2.0 2.1 2.2 The preupgrade/anaconda process completed and rebooted automatically, but with NetworkManager stopped; I had to manually start it before I could access the Internet

  1. changed default /images/install.img as noted by Epico. Cross preupgrade from f12.i686 to f14.x86_64. fedora icon with 13 displayed in GUI. Confusing. Had three 250GB disk with only SCSI ID diff...Had to guess in anaconda which was to be target. Had prob with restart of preupgrade. Will file bug report.

These were all done in KVM virtual machines with 1GB of ram and what appears to be plenty of space in /boot so my tests might have been skewed, but I didn't encounter any issues.
