Contribute at the Fedora Linux Test Week for Kernel 6.8

fedora 41 freeipa hsm

The kernel team is working on final integration for Linux kernel 6.8. 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, March 24, 2024 to Sunday, March 31, 2024. The wiki page in this article contains 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 ensure 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 week 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 week 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.

    Never received the Fedora Badge for running the kernel test.

    • I don’t think anyone has. As far as I know, the badges automatic awarding system is out of order (it has been for quite a while) and it requires a complete rewrite to work on the new systems. It would require a great deal of time and effort to rewrite it and no one has sufficient spare time (Akash started working on it, but other priorities came up).

        Ah ok makes sense.

        Thanks for the info!
