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.

How to test?

Test Day EC2 Images

Fedora EC2 images for test day are publicly accessible, but not broadly advertised. To launch an instance, log into the AWS Management Console.

  • Choose the EC2 tab.
  • In the left pane, select the US-East-1 region.
  • In the main window, select launch instance.
  • Click on the "Community AMIs" tab.
  • Enter one of the ami IDs below into the text box and follow the prompts to launch the image:
    • Fedora 16 x86_64: FIXME: AMI ID
    • Fedora 16 i386: FIXME: AMI ID

Testing the Images

  • Launch one of the mentioned AMIs on EC2.
  • Log in as 'ec2-user' using the ssh key you specified on launch
  • sudo su should work without requiring a root password
  • Ensure that SELinux is enabled and functional using: cat /etc/selinux/config and cat /selinux/enforce
  • Ensure that your instance has network connectivity:
    • Check if your DNS is resolving: nslookup
    • Check the network settings: ifconfig and ping -c 4
  • Run some test-cases.

Test Cases

The first column should be your name with a link to your User page in the Wiki if you have one, and the second should be a link to the Smolt profile of the system you tested. For each test case, use the result template to enter your result, as shown in the example result line.
