Test the basic hardware functionality of the Raspberry Pi 3.
This testcase needs to be completed on the Raspberry Pi 3 hardware. To test the serial console you will need a TTL to USB adapter. To test the display you will need an HDMI cable, monitor and USB keyboard.
How to test
For details on how to use the serial console, refer to this page .
Write the image to be tested using the arm-image-installer with the '--addconsole' option or if writing the image using another tool you will need to manually uncomment the 'uart=1' line in /boot/config.txt. Use minicom or screen to connect the serial console.
sudo minicom -D /dev/ttyUSB0
Power on the Raspberry Pi and complete initial-setup.
Connect a monitor using the HDMI cable and boot the Raspberry Pi 3. Boot the image to be tested on the Raspberry Pi 3 and complete initial-setup.
Get a list of available networks:
nmcli device wifi list
Connect to an available network (replace $SSID)
nmcli device wifi connect $SSID --ask
Test connectivity by performing some basic network tasks such as checking for an update ( rpm-ostree upgrade ), adding a layered package or downloading a large file.
Make sure the bluetooth service is running
systemctl status bluetooth
Connect to the bluetoothctl tool

- When using a serial console or display, the output should not be garbled and display boot messages ending with initial-setup.
- Wifi device should be available and allow connection to AP. It should be possible to perform basic network tests.
- Bluetooth should allow device pairing and provide working functionality.
