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 instalment of Fedora Test Day will focus on Kernel 4.20

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 test day image or Fedora 29 or 30 Workstation/Server installation, either on bare metal or VM (please make sure you have no important data on that installation, things might go wrong -- don't do this on your production machine!)
  • The 4.20 kernel for F29 from koji or copr if not using the test day image. (koji is recommended for secure boot users). This kernel should install fine on F28 and F29 systems.
  • Enough free space on HDD

How to test?[edit]

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, have a look in the results page. Please include the vulnerability output at the end of the test suite in the comments.

If you don't see it, please file a new bug to Bugzilla, probably against kernel component.  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. I've never done anything in a test day before. When I say the extras that had to be installed, I decided not enough space for more rarely to be used devel software., and simply installed 4.20.2. booted and worked a while, then on a mount(.nfs) command in vtty3 root login I got a screenful+ of call trace I had to kill bash on vtty3 to restore its use.
