View Full Version : Fedora 14 final validation testing: please help!

23rd October 2010, 01:08 AM
Hi, everyone. This is another call for contributions to the validation testing for Fedora 14 Final.

Validation testing is a set of planned tests to try and ensure the release meets the basic release criteria. We have installation and desktop validation tests.

Testing is pretty easy: you look at the results page, there's a table of tests and results. You find a test with no result, do the test (the test page will have instructions), and fill in the result. See, I said it was easy. :)

Some of the installation tests require specific hardware, but many of them don't, and none of the desktop testing does.

Right now we're testing the RC1 images - that's Release Candidate 1, it's the first build done after all known release blockers are closed. If no release blocking bugs are identified in this build, it will be released as Fedora 14 Final. The validation test result pages are here:


and you can get the images here:

Please fill in your results on the wiki pages, don't post them here - do feel free to ask questions and so on here, but there's a thread in the F14 forum for general RC1 discussion already:


thanks, everyone!
