Anaconda BlivetGUI Test Day: 2017-04-06

Thursday, 2017-04-06, is the Anaconda BlivetGUI Test Day! As part of this planned Change for Fedora 26, we need your help to test Anaconda BlivetGUI!

Why test BlivetGUI?

We’ll be testing the new, detailed, bottom-up configuration screen that has been long requested by users. Inclusion of blivet-gui into Anaconda finally makes this a reality. On the other hand, it adds a new option without changing the existing advanced storage configuration so users that prefer the top-down configuration can still use it. We hope to see whether it’s working well enough and catch any remaining issues.

We need your help!

All the instructions are on the wiki page, so please read through and come help us test! As always, the event will be in #fedora-test-day on Freenode IRC.

    I just checked it out. I agree that this has been an insanely important missing feature in Anaconda since they changed the look and feel of it. I’m glad they’re finally including it.

    I didn’t get a chance to test it on a dual-boot system, which is where I think it will really shine… but from what I’ve seen so far, two huge thumbs up.
