Contribute at the Fedora Linux Test Week for Kernel 6.3

Intel CL , Upgrade, Fedora 40

The kernel team is working on final integration for Linux kernel 6.3. This version was just recently released, and will arrive soon in Fedora Linux. As a result, the Fedora Linux kernel and QA teams have organized a test week from Sunday, May 07, 2023 to Sunday, May 14, 2023. Refer to the wiki page in this article for links to the test images you’ll need to participate. Please continue reading for details.

How does a test week work?

A test week is an event where anyone can help make sure changes in Fedora Linux 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 do the following things:

  • Download test materials, which include some large files
  • Read and follow directions step by step

The wiki page for the kernel test day has a lot of good information on what and how to test. After you’ve done some testing, you can log your results in the test day web application. If you’re available on or around the days of the event, please do some testing and report your results. We have a document which provides all the necessary steps.

Happy testing, and we hope to see you on one of the test days.

  7. I performed the tests the easy way (for me). I have a Samsung 128GB FIT USB drive/stick with Ventoy installed on it, so all I had to do to run the tests was to download the test image to that drive, then restart my PC to boot from the above-mentioned drive and choose the test image. After it booted, I checked that the running kernel was version 6.3.1, then I opened the Files app, navigated to the test directory, created the .config file (using the config-example.txt file), opened a terminal in that directory, then ran the test script. Since I provided my FAS username in the .config file, when the time came to provide my password (I had already installed my password manager of choice in Firefox and copied my password from my vault to the clipboard), all I had to do was paste it into the terminal, and submission succeeded. All in all, writing this description of what I did took about twice as long as doing it.
