[edit] What to test?

Today's instalment of Fedora Test Day will focus on the Intel graphics card driver.

If you come to this page after the test day is completed, your testing is still valuable, and you can use the information on this page to test with your graphics card and provide feedback.

[edit] Who's available

The following cast of characters will be available for testing, workarounds, bug fixes, and general discussion...

[edit] How to test?

[edit] Update your machine

If you're running Fedora 23, make sure you have all the current updates for it installed, using the update manager. Or you can use a live image:

[edit] Live image

Optionally, you may download a non-destructive Fedora 23 live image for your architecture. Tips on using a live image are available at FedoraLiveCD.

[edit] Testing

Follow each of these test cases:

Multihead test case:

You will need two or more monitors to perform the multihead test.

[edit] Report your results

If you have problems with any of the tests, report a bug to Bugzilla usually for the component xorg-x11-drv-intel. If you are unsure about exactly how to file the report, just ask on IRC and we will help you. Follow the instructions on this page to ensure you include sufficient information in the report. Once you have completed the tests, add your results to the Results table below, following the example results 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 be a link to your Smolt hardware profile (see above for a link with instructions on submitting your hardware profile to Smolt). For each test case, if your system worked correctly, simply enter the word PASS. If you had trouble, enter the word FAIL, with a footnote indicator, and put a link to the bug report in the comments column (as in the example line). If you could not perform one test (for example, you cannot perform the more advanced tests because the basic one fails, or you cannot perform the multihead test as you have only one display), enter the word N/A. In the comments column, you can enter the model name and PCI device ID (vendor ID is usually 8086) of your card, if you know it - you can usually find this information in the output of the command lspci -nn.

[edit] Long comments

  1. Intel GMA 3100: All tests were ok, The compositing one had a little problem, nothing to worry about (When the compositing was activated, Gnome's top panel dissapeared and after clicking sometimes in the blank space it reappeared) As additional information I want to add that the computer has F13 Installed but I used the F14 Live CD to make the tests, also I believe it's important to mention that in KDE i can't have fully transparent panels or good performance of the Kwin Effects (Computer goes slow when enabling them) and in VMWare Player I can't run Windows 7 with Aero because as Vmware says "The system doesn't have 3D Graphics Support" or something like that. These KDE Problems are not present in other distros I've been trying out with the same machine (Kubuntu, Mandriva, OpenSUSE) Just to mention ones... P.S. I wasn't able to start Gnome Shell.
  2. After the graphical boot loader screen ("Automatic boot in X seconds..."), the screen switches into low-res text mode with a gray background for 1-2 seconds, then to a high-res text mode with a black background for 1-2 seconds, and then into the graphical animated screen. I would not call this flicker-free (especially the gray background yields a very noticeable flicker).
  3. I run this test twice, once with a beamer, then with an LCD display as second display (primary display was the laptop screen). With the beamer, it automatically displayed the same contents on both screens (in gnome-display-properties, the screens were on top of each other), which is nice if you have to give a talk. However, after I moved one of the two screens, the two screens showed different contents and I could not restore the original situation where the two screens showed the same content. With the LCD screen, I did not succeed in having both screens display the same content. Also, I could not make the top panel move to the other screen - it always displayed on the second LCD screen.
  4. There is no name in the top-right corner. Instead, I switched users by using the menu: System -> Log out liveuser -> Switch user. So I am not sure whether this is "fast" user switching, but graphically speaking, everything worked fine.
  5. The system is generally unstable after resume (various things fail in non-reproducible ways: when playing a movie, sound doesn't come back or the video image is frozen; sometimes I get many squashfs IO errors and things don't run anymore). But the graphics seem to work OK.
