DNF 2.0 Test Day: 2017-05-09

Tuesday, 2017-05-09, is the DNF 2.0 Test Day! As part of this planned Change for Fedora 26, we need your help to test DNF 2.0!

Why test DNF 2.0?

DNF-2 is the upstream DNF version, the only version actively developed. Currently the upstream contains many user requested features, increased compatibility with yum and over 30 bug fixes. To DNF-1 back porting of patches from upstream is difficult and only critical security and usability fixes will be cherry-picked to Fedora.

Fedora Media Writer Test Day: 2017-04-20

Thursday, 2017-04-20, is the Fedora Media Writer Test Day! As part of this planned Change for Fedora 26, we need your help to test Fedora Media Writer!

Why test Fedora Media Writer?

Today’s installment of Fedora Test Day will focus on Fedora Media Writer. Fedora Media Writer, is used for creating bootable flashdrives on different operating systems and architectures. The tool is intended to be provided as the primary download option for Fedora 25, with the aim of lowering the barrier for potential users to try and install Fedora. In this test day, we aim to test both Fedora 25 and Fedora 26 Pre-Release boot-media creation on Windows, OS X, and Fedora, specifically targeting creation of ARM-bootable media.

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.

Fedora Activity Day, Bangalore 2017

The Fedora Activity Day (FAD) is a regional event (either one-day or multi-day) that allows Fedora contributors to gather together in order to work on specific tasks related to the Fedora Project.

FAD in Bangalore

On February 25th 2017, a FAD was conducted in one of the admirable university of Bangalore: University Visvesvaraya College of Engineering (UVCE). It was not a typical “hackathon” or “DocSprint” but a series of productive and interactive sessions on different tools.

Heroes of Fedora (HoF) – F25 Beta

This installment of the Heroes of Fedora series will focus on work done on Fedora 25 Alpha release.

This installment of the Heroes of Fedora series will focus on work done on Fedora 25 Beta release.

Hello fellow testers, and welcome back to the Heroes of Fedora – F25 Beta edition! In this post we’ll look at who-did-what during the push to F25 – Beta! Before we begin however, something has come to our attention that we need to clear up! Since Fedora 24 Alpha, we have no longer used the TC (Test Candidate) system and have switched to using nightly-test-validation to document testing on branched releases. When this change occurred early in the F24 – Alpha release cycle, the program we have used to generate test statistics was not aware of the change and some of the data it reported back for F24 – Alpha, Beta, Final and F25 – Alpha was erroneous. This has been noted and fixed, so the results from now on should be accurate.  We’re sorry for this error and will make sure that this does not affect the stats into the future.

With that out of the way, let’s move on to our Heroes of Fedora F25 – Beta!

Test Day: Better Switchable Graphics Support

Thursday, November 3rd, 2016, is the Better Switchable Graphics Support Test Day! As part of this planned Change for Fedora 25, we need your help to test Better Switchable Graphics Support!

Why test Better Switchable Graphics Support?

All modern laptops have a graphics processing unit (GPU) integrated into their processor (the integrated GPU). Some models also have a more powerful, dedicated GPU (dGPU), also called switchable graphics. The goal of this feature is to improve Fedora’s support for such laptops.

We need your help to test Switchable Graphics Support!

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. Be sure to join us in channel on Thursday!

Wayland By Default Test Day 2016-10-13

Today, Thursday, 2016-10-13, is the Wayland by Default Test Day! As part of this planned Change for Fedora 25, we need your help to test Wayland by Default! Using Wayland instead of X gives a better basis for isolating applications from each other and the rest of the system.

testdaywaylandWhy test Wayland By Default?

Systems using certain graphics hardware or graphics drivers (matrox, qxl) may have problems running the Wayland session. In these (rare) cases, users may have to configure gdm to use X11 (although automatic fallback should work most of the time). If we don’t manage to close all the feature parity gaps entirely, users relying on those features may have to choose the X11-based session.
