Contribute at the Fedora Audio, Kernel 5.11 and i18n test days

Fedora Linux Kernel 5.13 Test Week

Fedora test days are events where anyone can help make sure changes in Fedora work well in an upcoming release. Fedora community members often participate, and the public is welcome at these events. If you’ve never contributed to Fedora before, this is a perfect way to get started.

There are three upcoming test events in the next week.

  • Wednesday March 03, is to test the Pipewire Audio changes in Fedora.
  • Monday March 08 through March 15, this test week is focusing on testing Kernel 5.11.
  • Tuesday March 09 through March 15, is to test the Fedora 34 i18n features.

Come and test with us to make the upcoming Fedora 34 even better. Read more below on how to do it.

Audio test day

There is a recent proposal to replace the PulseAudio daemon with a functionally compatible implementation based on PipeWire. This means that all existing clients using the PulseAudio client library will continue to work as before, as well as applications shipped as Flatpak. The test day is to test everything works as expected. This will occur on Wednesday, March 03

Kernel test week

The kernel team is working on the final integration for kernel 5.11. This version was just recently released and will arrive soon in Fedora. As a result, the Fedora kernel and QA teams have organized a test week for Monday, March 08 through Monday, March 15. Refer to the wiki page for links to the test images you’ll need to participate. This document clearly outlines the steps.

i18n test week

GNOME is the default desktop environment for Fedora Workstation and thus for many Fedora users. A lot of our users use Fedora in their preferred languages and it’s important that we test the changes. The wiki contains more details about how to participate. The test week is March 09 through March 15.

How do test days work?

A test day is an event where anyone can help make sure changes in Fedora work well in an upcoming release. Fedora community members often participate, and the public is welcome at these events. If you’ve never contributed before, this is a perfect way to get started.

To contribute, you only need to be able to download test materials (which include some large files) and then read and follow directions step by step.

Detailed information about all the test days are on the wiki pages above. If you’re available on or around the days of the events, please do some testing and report your results.

  1. I love the change from kkc to ibus-anthy as anthy has great settings as compared to mozc or kkc. I have contributed to about 20 strings in Fedora website translation and would love to contribute more 😉 Great weblate infra.

    For the Kernel, im excited about the AMD improvements will be testing it and provide test results on bodhi.
    Great Work by JForbes and everyone at Fedora Project.

  2. Upcoming Fedora 33 should be 34

  6. Fedora 33 is great, but I have problem! My new printer works only in normal mode! Well not print on the internet? I have tried every thing that I know and it still doesn’t work!

    If anyone could test if the Rocksmith Real Tone cable gets correctly detected and used in Steam’s Rocksmith and Rocksmith 2014? That would be great. Could never get the game to work (well, the game works, also in pulseaudio the cable got detected but the game never found the device. I tried all website hints I could found but they never worked for me)
    Thank You!

    Will this update to Pipefire fix the audio in Firefox not going to USB headphones?

    Firefox is the only application I use that forces audio through the local speakers in my laptop.

    Even Microsoft Teams can get USB audio right.

    Why have Firefox audio channels broken??

      Have you created a bug? You must have a very special system as I have never had issues switching output devices with pulseaudio.
