Prerequisite for Test Day
- A system (real or virtual) you can install Fedora to, and not mind if it breaks
- A Fedora 38 image: download Workstation or Server or KDE and other spins
- For Previous Test Cases: download Fedora 38
- Make sure to use the latest version of dnf for F38 is installed
How to test?
Upgrade Fedora with dnf system upgrade:
Use these commands to first ensure you have latest packages, install system upgrade, download and reboot with the new version. Example upgrade to Fedora 39.
sudo dnf upgrade --refresh sudo dnf install dnf-plugin-system-upgrade sudo dnf system-upgrade download --releasever=39 sudo dnf system-upgrade reboot
Another test option is to use gnome-software, good if you can test in this way too!
Run the tests
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.
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.
Anaconda will display an error dialog allowing you to report the problem to Bugzilla. This will also automatically attach logs, error message and traceback to the report -- this way of reporting bugs is preferred.
The results will transferred once the test day is over
