Details
The result column titles are variants in Pungi/productmd parlance. For each variant, the checksums for all images in that variant can be checked; the maximum size for all images in that variant which have a maximum size can be checked; and repoclosure and fileconflicts can be checked for any DVD image in that variant. Any failure for any tested image should be filed as a bug and reported as a failure here. Please provide the bug ID and a short note of exactly which image(s) failed as a comment.

Default boot and install (x86_64)[edit]

Note.png
Single test table
In all of these tests, the test case used is QA:Testcase_Boot_default_install. That is where the links point. The same test needs to be run for multiple images, target platforms, and install media. Note that the non-installer-based ARM disk images are covered by the later #ARM disk images section. The VM columns are for results from testing in a virtual machine. The CD/DVD columns are for results from testing on a real system with the image written to a real CD or DVD. The USB columns are for results from testing on a real system with the image written to a USB stick.
Note.png
Expected coverage
For Beta, we expect a reasonable sampling of tests across the table, with at least some testing for VM and USB boot method, both firmware types, and each major class of deliverable (netinst, live and DVD). For Final, we expect full coverage for Basic / Final rows with VM and USB boot method. Optical boot testing from physical media in Final is optional (but blocking if issues are found) for supported images.

  1. Resizing VM window bounces you back to the greeter (VirtualBox), beta 1.2 didn't have this problem. No option during install to set a machine name or enable the root account, is this really intentional?

Cloud[edit]

Cloud Provider Setup[edit]

Expand one of the sections below for instructions on getting set up to run these testcases on a specific provider. More information can be found in the Fedora Cloud guide.

Amazon EC2

  1. Get an AWS account (the approval process can take hours)
  2. Make sure that your security group allows for SSH (default tcp port 22)
  3. Log in to the AWS Management Console
  4. Obtain the AMI id of the image you want to test. For officially released images, check http://cloud.fedoraproject.org/. If you're doing validation testing, there should be some tables of AMI IDs above; if not, try looking through the messages published by the AMI publisher
  5. Search for and select the desired AMI on the IMAGES/AMIs section of the EC2 console
  6. Launch an instance with the AMI under test

Amazon provided this information on various instance types that may be useful to test, in August 2019. Note that you can use 750 hours per month on a t2.micro instance (which is Xen-based) for free for the first year; other instance types, and t2.micro after the first year, cost money. To avoid costs, you can contact the the Infrastructure team and request access to Fedora's AWS account for testing purposes, per this SOP.

x86 platforms

  • Xen domU with only PV interfaces (e.g., M3 instances)
  • Xen domU with Intel 82599 virtual functions for Enhanced Networking (e.g., C3 instances running in a VPC)
  • Xen domU with Enhanced Networking Adapter (e.g., R4 instances)
  • Xen domU with NVMe local instance storage (e.g., virtualized I3 instances)
  • Xen domU with more than 32 vCPUs (e.g., c4.8xlarge)
  • Xen domU with four NUMA nodes (e.g., x1.32xlarge)
  • Xen domU with maximum RAM available in EC2 (x1e.32xlarge)
  • KVM guest with consistent performance (e.g., c5.large)
  • KVM guest with burstable performance (e.g., t3.large)
  • KVM guest with local NVMe storage (e.g., c5d.large)
  • KVM guest with 100 Gbps networking and Elastic Fabric Adapter (c5n.18xlarge)
  • KVM guest on AMD processors (e.g., m5a.large)
  • KVM guest on AMD processors with maximum NUMA nodes (e.g., m5a.24xlarge)
  • Bare metal Broadwell (i3.metal)
  • Bare metal Skylake (m5.metal)
  • Bare metal Cascade Lake (c5.metal)

Arm platforms

  • KVM guest on Arm with 1 CPU cluster (a1.xlarge)
  • KVM guest on Arm with 2 CPU clusters (a1.2xlarge)
  • KVM guest on Arm with 4 CPU clusters (a1.4xlarge)

Openstack

  1. Use your own OpenStack deployment
  2. Provide or create an SSH keypair
  3. Make sure that your security group allows for SSH (default tcp port 22)
  4. Log in to the Horizon dashboard
  5. Find the image URL at http://cloud.fedoraproject.org/ or as provided in release candidate documents.
  6. Add the image to OpenStack, either using the OpenStack web dashboard (see step 4 here) or with glance image-create --name "Fedora version" --disk-format qcow2 --container-format bare --is-public true --copy-from url
  7. Launch the instance (in the dashboard, under the "Images" heading, click the "Launch" button for the appropriate image

Local testing

  1. You can deploy the cloud image locally either using the well-known virt-install tool or a Fedora-specific testcloud tool. See Local cloud testing with virt-install or Testcloud quickstart guide, respectively.
  2. Once logged in the virtual cloud instance, you can perform the tests below.

  1. RHBZ #2063483
  2. MATE provides its own launcher to launch yelp.
  3. RHBZ #2066111
  4. yelp is installed but you have no way to get to it because the launcher has "OnlyShowIn=GNOME;Unity;" in it. If you edit the launcher and comment that line out, it's all good and working fine.

  1. Technically at 2.6G this is a fail but the media size is reasonable, the size limit should be changed to 3G at least.
  2. RHBZ #2063469
  3. RHBZ #2041845
  4. This persists from my beta 1.2 testing.
  5. As reported against beta 1.1 & 1.2, it is daft that all the security apps appear duplicated in the system menu as well as being neatly organized under the "Security Lab" menu. Fortunately one command "sudo sed -i 's/Categories=System;/Categories=/' /usr/share/applications/security*.desktop" can do an in place edit and clean up the mess. This really needs to be fixed.
