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 two upcoming test days this week. The first, on Tuesday March 12, is to test the Kernel 5.0. Wednesday March 13, the test day is focusing on Fedora IoT Edition. Come and test with us to make the upcoming Fedora 30 even better.
Kernel test day
The kernel team is working on final integration for kernel 5.0. This version was just recently released and will arrive soon in Fedora. This version will also be the shipping kernel for Fedora 30. As a
result, the Fedora kernel and QA teams have organized a test day for
Tuesday, March 12. Refer to the wiki page for links to the test images you’ll need to participate.
Fedora IoT Edition test day
Fedora Internet of Things is a variant of Fedora focused on IoT ecosystems. Whether you’re working on a home assistant, industrial gateways, or data storage and analytics, Fedora IoT provides a trusted open source platform to build on. Fedora IoT produces a monthly rolling release to help you keep your ecosystem up-to-date. The IoT and QA teams will have this test day for on Wednesday, March 13. Refer to the wiki page for links and resources to test the IoT Edition.
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 both 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.
Hello, I will be testing the IoT version if the link to the test results pages works, I need to see what I should be testing for.
The results page is http://testdays.fedorainfracloud.org/events/62 and is also updated in the wiki. Its a bunch of basic test cases. You can also test Rpi3 with wired and wireless settings both.
Thanks, I don’t have a recent RPI to test with but I will do a couple of VM’s and run through some of the tests anyway.
I’ll like to contribute for tetsting.I am a Fedora QA but worked very less in Fedora.My expertise in in QA and automation.
Thanks for testing, I will try to see what the results are
I’d like to contribute via VirtualBox by testing Kernel 5.0. But, I couldn’t find kernel-5.0.0-…-fc29 on the linked pages.
You can add the Copr repo on your fedora distro you have in your VM.
see here: https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/jforbes/kernel-stabilization/
once you added the repo, you can do:sudo dnf upgrade && sudo dnf install kernel-5.0.0-200.fc29.x86_64 (in case of 64 bit arch) and will install the kernel to test. Reboot and test.
Thanks for the summary, @Yosenkrantz! I’ve been looking around and couldn’t find anything resembling that. I vote for it to be added to the test page wiki.
