Contribute at the Fedora Test Week for Kernel 5.7

The kernel team is working on final integration for kernel 5.7. 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 from Monday, June 22, 2020 through Monday, June 29, 2020. Refer to the wiki page for links to the test images you’ll need to participate. Read below for details.

How does a test week work?

A test week 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 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 day of the event, please do some testing and report your results. We have a document which provides all the steps written.

Happy testing, and we hope to see you on test day.

    Does this mean it will come to the current release of Fedora 32 or next release of 33?

  2. espirtusanti

    I use my own 5.7.2 kernel on Fedora 30 without problems.

  3. Lyes Saadi

    Will kernel headers be built as well?

  4. leslie Satenstein

    I decided to go the ISO route, and I will install the test ISO that is made available.
    My use is as a normal desktop user (Gnome, KDE). I will be trying those two interfaces and will follow up with I3 or other.

    I will be testing directly to hardware, and not via a VM interface

    I am so excited I have been using Linux as a desktop since RH 6. First time I actually tested. I hope my results help!

  9. Thank you that you send me something positive.
    Fedora = users, free users who believe in respect, and code.
    If IBM will not respect us, we will not respect IBM.
