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 [on Fedocal] 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 Virtualization in Fedora 39. We will be interested covering the regular virt-install, KVM, Boxes, Vbox.

Who's available[edit]

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

What's needed to test[edit]

For starters, your physical machine should have:

  • Hardware virtualization support (e.g. Intel VT or AMD-V) (see Is My Guest Using KVM?).
  • Up to 10-20Gb free disk space. Guest images take up a lot of space.
  • Get the packages with: dnf groupinstall virtualization

As for getting the latest virt packages, you have a few options:

Fedora 39 on a physical machine[edit]

The preferred testing platform is a fully updated Fedora 39 machine. You have a few options for getting the Fedora 39 bits:

Install with CD/DVD[edit]

You can download the latest Fedora 39 composes here:

Run Fedora 39 in a VM with nested virtualization[edit]

Do you have a new machine with a ton of ram and storage space, running Fedora 37/38? Nested virt might be an option! This allows you to create KVM guests inside a Fedora 39 VM.

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.

If you don't see it, please file a new bug to Bugzilla. 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.

Test Results[edit]

The results will be transferred after the test day is over.
