Can't make the date?
If you come to this page before or after the test day is completed, your testing is still valuable, and you can use the information on this page to test, file any bugs you find at Bugzilla, and add your results to the results section. If this page is more than a month old when you arrive here, please check the current schedule and see if a similar but more recent Test Day is planned or has already happened.

What to test?[edit]

Today's installment of Fedora Test Day will focus on upgrading from Fedora 23 to Fedora 24 Workstation with Gnome-software

Who's available?[edit]

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

Prerequisites for Test Day[edit]

  • A fully updated Fedora 23 Workstation installation, either on bare metal or in VM (please make sure you have no important data on that installation, things might go wrong -- don't do this on your production machine!)
  • Enough free space on HDD

How to test?[edit]

Follow the instructions from QA:Testcase_Workstation_Graphical_Upgrade.

Furthermore, try to explore and test different approaches and/or edge cases (for example, what happens if you don't have enough free disk space?).

Reporting bugs[edit]

If you have problems with any of the tests, have a look at the list of reported bugs in Bugzilla and in the results page. If you don't see it, please a new bug to Bugzilla, probably against gnome-software component. Add bug 1308538 to the Blocks: field. If you are unsure about exactly how to file the report or what other information to include, just ask on IRC #fedora-test-day or #fedora-qa and we will help you.

  1. Very slow after downloading before ask to reboot. Needs probably to display more info: download rate, number of packet, a percentage, the actual processing (downloading, preparing, installing, configuring)...

  1. Only a minor thing: During the download, in the Software app, the Installed tab shows the word "Installing" whereas the Updates tab shows "Downloading Fedora 24". Maybe the Installed tab should also use the word "Downloading"? (But I like the progress bar along the button in the Installed tab.) I think someone else mentioned that it would be nice to see more detailed progress info, just to comfort the user that the d/l didn't get silently stuck or hung. Upon post-upgrade reboot, Gnome Notification center showed that OS was updated, clicking on it => List of installed updates.

  1. RHBZ #1335414 The upgrade went fine. Initially, after enabling the copr, logging out and back in, gnome-software threw up a notification. On opening the app and clicking on "download", though, it threw an error - didn't give any details, though - looks like the bug that Kamil has filed already. I restarted and then it worked OK. The upgrade went OK - showed the percentage in the top left corner. Then it rebooted and everything seems OK now. The wiki page says it should notify the user about broken packages, but it didn't seem to tell me anything. I had vlc etc. from RPMFusion installed, and they're broken for F24 - they're not on the system any more, so I assume --allowerasing or something similar is enabled. The rest looks good - nothing broken, no real issues.
