What to test?

This week's instalment of Fedora Test Day will focus on:

Preparing for Test Day

Depending on the speed of your connection and the time available for testing, there are several methods available for

Live Images

  1. Please download a live ISO image for your architecture:
  2. Prepare your live image by following the instructions at FedoraLiveCD
  3. Or run the dowloaded ISO image in qemu:
     su -c 'qemu -cdrom Fedora-11-Alpha-i686-Live.iso -m 512 -std-vga'

Install Media

  1. Consult the installation guide for quick start information to determine the best install method for your needs.
  2. Follow instructions for installing your system.
    • Alternatively, on an already installed system:
      1. Install snake:
        yum install snake
      2. Configure your system for installation:

How to test?


Perhaps we should script all the changes and let the tester just run the script

su -c 'chmod +x /home/<user>/Download/ && /home/<user>/Download/ 

Draft Continue

Have to hear from Harald how he wants it should be something like this..

Use a live cd or make a default all install.

Open a terminal window and run:

su -c 'yum -y install bootchart'

Open /sbin/bootchartd with your favourite text editor and change line 121


local exit_proc="gdmgreeter gdm-binary kdm-greet kdm ldm"


local exit_proc="firefox"

Or open up a terminal window and run

su -c 'sed 's/gdmgreeter\ gdm-binary\ kdm-greet\ kdm\ ldm/firefox/g' File > File 

Open /etc/bootchartd.conf with your favourite text editor and change line 13





Or open up a terminal window and run

su -c 'sed 's/0.2/20/g' File > File 

Auto logon?

Perhaps Harald wants the user auto logon and auto start firefox ??


  1. TODO

We need to figure out were we want the tester to upload the bootchart.. We need to coordinate with the kernel guy's and rel-eng to provide the kernel with debug turned off and rel-eng to build a testable test images for that test day..

Please record information about you and your bootup time in the table below.
