This page records desktop validation testing test results for the Fedora 13 Alpha RC3 release.

How to test[edit]

  1. Download the ISO images for testing: please use either the DVD installer image with the default package set, or the Desktop spin, first of all. Space is provided in the results matrix for recording tests on other desktops, but the results for the default desktop environment are most important. Deltaisos for DVD images are also available.
  2. Install, if appropriate (some tests may be intended to test the un-installed live environment).
  3. Perform one or more of the test cases and add your results to the table below.
Virtual machine testing
