Kernel 5.1 Test Week starting 2019-05-13

Monday, 2019-05-13 through Friday 2019-05-18 is the Kernel 5.1 Test Week!

Test Days/Weeks are planned events when a specific feature is tested and the community tries to report issues. Kernel being one of most crucial bit of the system, testing it for a significant amount of time is very necessary!

Why Test Kernel?

The kernel team is working on Kernel 5.1.  This version was just recently released, and will arrive soon in Fedora.
This version will also be the shipping Kernel for Fedora 29, 30 and upcoming pre-release Fedora 31. So it’s to see whether it’s working well enough and catch any remaining issues.
It’s also pretty easy to join in: all you’ll need is an iso (which you can grab from the wiki page).

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.

This instalment 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.

Test Day: Fedora Silverblue

Why test Fedora Silverblue

Fedora Silverblue is a new variant of Fedora Workstation with rpm-ostree at its core to provide fully atomic upgrades. Furthermore, Fedora Silverblue is immutable and upgrades as a whole, providing easy rollbacks from updates if something goes wrong. Fedora Silverblue is great for developers using Fedora with good support for container-focused workflows.

Additionally, Fedora Silverblue delivers desktop applications as Flatpaks. This provides better isolation/sandboxing of applications, and streamlines updating applications — Flatpaks can be safely updated without reboot.

Fedora Kernel and i18n Test Day: PICT College

Planning

We met for 2 meeting instances to plan this college meetup, once on 30th August 2018 and then again on 3rd September 2018 in Red Hat office. This event was planned as an alternative to the September Fedora Pune Meetup. We decided to do something different this time by executing a recent Fedora 29 test day with a room full of students of Computer department in the PICT college of Pune. Professor Mayur was our point of contact in the college and we had shared the Fedora 29 image under test with him. He ensured students have it installed on their respective systems before the actual test day. Pravin Satpute from Red hat helped us with coordination with the college. Kaushik Banerjee arranged for few Fedora and Red Hat badges to distribute among the attending students. The event took place on Friday, 7th September 2018.
