View Full Version : Graphics Test Week starts Tuesday

21st February 2011, 06:36 AM
It's that time again - this week is Graphics Test Week. Tuesday 2011-02-22 is Nouveau Test Day (http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Test_Day:2011-02-22_Nouveau), Wednesday 2011-02-23 is Radeon Test Day (http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Test_Day:2011-02-23_Radeon) and Thursday 2011-02-24 is Intel (graphics) Test Day (http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Test_Day:2011-02-24_Intel).

Testing is very easy and can be done entirely with a live image, there's no need to install F15 or Rawhide; full instructions are available on the Wiki pages. QA folks and graphics developers will be in #fedora-test-day during the events. These test days are super-important this release because we'll be checking out the support for GNOME Shell, one of the major features of F15; we really need to get a good idea of the state of hardware support for the Shell, so PLEASE do come out and help test if you have any spare time this week! Also please help spread the word anywhere you can - your local enthusiast community, any news websites you know, particularly ones in non-English languages (as I'm not great at covering those).

There's a longer write-up on my blog (http://www.happyassassin.net/2011/02/20/its-graphics-test-week-again/). Please follow up if you have any questions or suggestions. Thanks!
