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 testing

  1. feedback on modularity
  2. serious regressions to YUM v3
  3. user experience issues (inconsistencies, awkward behavior)
  4. any performance issues

Who's available[edit]

The following cast of characters will be available testing, workarounds, bug fixes, and general discussion. In case of problem related to test day organization/wiki/whatever, please reach out to sumantrom.

Prerequisite for Test Day[edit]

How to test?[edit]

Install Fedora 29[edit]

Testing DNF from a live environment is difficult and will likely wind up with the system exhausting available RAM and failing in strange ways, so we recommend you install Fedora 29 for this Test Day.

Update your machine[edit]

Make sure you have all the current updates installed, using the update manager. Note that a clean installed Fedora 29 system will have DNF 3.5.1, while after update from updates-testing (which is enabled by default), you should have DNF 3.6.1 from this update. We are interested in tests with both versions. If you find an issue with one version, it would be very useful to check if it also happens with the other.

Run the tests[edit]

Visit the result page and click on the column title links to see the tests that need to be run: most column titles are links to a specific test case. Follow the instructions there, then enter your results by clicking the Enter result button for the test.

Reporting bugs[edit]

If you have problems with any of the tests, report a bug to Bugzilla usually for the component dnf. If you are unsure about exactly how to file the report or what other information to include, just ask on IRC and we will help you.

  1. I got intermittent failures. I tried using the --best and the --alloweraseing when appropriate, but that did not work the failure type changed. I have saved text files showing the failures. I will attach them if I can find a place to do so.
  2. Intermittent failure. I don't know if the problem is with dnf or with the repos. Some times when I run updates it fails sometimes it doesn't (I started this testing yesterday).
  3. This ran fine.
