What to test?[edit]

This Fedora Test Day will focus on DeviceKit.

Who's available[edit]

The following cast of characters will be available to help with testing, workarounds, bug fixes, and general discussion ...

Prerequisities for the test day[edit]

  • Fully updated Rawhide
  • Free space for more partitions on a HD
  • FAS Account - you can create an account in 3 minutes if you don't have one
  • Your hardware profile uploaded to Smolt according to these instructions
Backup Your Data
We're going to do dangerous things to partition tables and partitions. Don't perform your testing on a disk with data you'd like to keep.

Optional accessories[edit]

  • USB flash disk / MP3 player / memory card reader with a card or two
  • External HD (connected via USB or FireWire)
  • DVD-RAM writer & media, internal or external
  • PCMCIA memory card reader with a card
  • RAID array
  • Encrypted partitions
  • Any other exotic storage device you have

How to test?[edit]

Update your machine[edit]

See the instructions on the Rawhide page on the various ways in which you can install or update to Rawhide.

Live Image[edit]

Optionally, you may download a non-destructive rawhide live image for your architecture:

Tips on using a live image are available at FedoraLiveCD.

Creating a LiveUSB of this rawhide image requires the latest version of syslinux, which is currently available in Rawhide and in the latest Windows liveusb-creator. Users of F10 and below can
# yum --enablerepo=rawhide update syslinux

Filing Bugs[edit]

All bugs will be tracked in Bugzilla. To file a bug against DeviceKit, click here


Perform each of the following test cases that you are able to with the resources available to you.

  1. QA:Testcase_DeviceKit_nautilus_gdu
  2. QA:Testcase_DeviceKit_gvfs
  3. QA:Testcase_DeviceKit_palimpsest
  4. QA:Testcase_DeviceKit_power

Test Results[edit]

Once you have completed the tests, add your results to the Results table below, following the example results from Sample User as a template. The first column should be your name with a link to your User page in the Wiki if you have one, and the second should be a link to your Smolt hardware profile (see above for a link with instructions on submitting your hardware profile to Smolt).

For each test case, if your system worked correctly, simply enter the word PASS. If you had any failures, enter the word FAIL, as a link to the bug report for the failure. If you could not meaningfully run the test due to limitations of your system or because of failures in more basic functionality, enter the word N/A. In the comments column, you can enter the any additional information worth noting during your testing (work-arounds, observations etc...).

User Smolt Profile nautilus-gdu gvfs palimpsest power Comments
Sample user HW PASS PASS PASS PASS Filed sample bug rhbug:1
James Laska HW FAIL (see comments) PASS (see comments)
  • nautilus-gdu - FAT formatting occasionally never finishes ... and chews up memory (using nautilus or gnome-disk-utility-format).
  • nautilus-gdu - gnome-disk-utility dialogs include dbus strings (filed enhancement gnomebug#575710)
  • nautilus-gdu - Failure while creating an ext3+LUKS partition gnomebug#575725
  • nautilus-gdu - Failure while trying to mount an encrypted ext3+LUKS partitions gnomebug#575728
  • palimpsest - Gets confused with too many partitions (See rhbug:488554)
Michal Nowak HW 2/5 PASS ratio 1/2 PASS ratio PASS N/A When playing with USB key, the g-d-u-f seemed to me fragile, a lot of problems I had to temporary "solve" via (un)plugging the USB key. Palimpsest needs some polishing like: SMART self-test happened (and probably passed) but now window reported this success back to me.
Zbysek MRAZ HW PASS FAIL FAIL - not able to handle any USB device. All edit options are inactive even running as root N/A 1. Find some FAT & cryptsetup issues alltogether with tbzatek
Adam Williamson HW FAIL(*) PASS FAIL(+) FAIL(o)
  • *: crashes on USB stick with partition but no filesystem or USB stick with no partition
  • +: 'Device is busy' trying to delete an existing unmounted LUKS-encrypted partition on a USB stick
  • o: Battery / AC switch isn't done right
Ondrej Hudlicky HW FAIL FAIL FAIL N/A
  • 490870 No support for root actions in nautilus
  • 490873 palimpsest: no option to mount unmounted volumes
  • 490881 palimpsest: limited function for root user
