Contribute at the Fedora Test Week for Kernel 5.10

The kernel team is working on final integration for kernel 5.10. 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, January 04, 2021 through Monday, January 11, 2021. 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.

    Gdzie mogę zgłaszac błędy po polsku?

    • Let’s please remember to be gracious. It’s true that Fedora operates primarily in English, but we also have community members from all over the world.

    • You can file bugs in Red Hat Bugzilla, but I don’t know if there are any kernel developers who speak Polish so you might not get any help, unfortunately.

    Do I still need to manually enter my result to the web app if already uploaded it automatically?

    Any method to test notebook suspend / resume operations, in text mode only, provided by the kernel?
