What to test?

Today's instalment of Fedora Test Day will focus on:

Who's available

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

Prerequisites for Test Day

You will need a Fedora 11 Beta system with root access (as we are going to work with yum and rpm). You should have your favourite package set installed. We will provide a repo with F11 Snapshot1 packages with delta RPMs and presto metadata generated, so everybody can do Beta -> Snapshot1 upgrade. Unfortunately there is no live CD for this test day, as you need an installed system to properly test this feature.


cat <<EOF> /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-presto-testday.repo
name=PrestoTestDay F11 Snapshot1 with drpms


cat <<EOF> /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-presto-testday.repo
name=PrestoTestDay F11 Snapshot1 with drpms

Remove with caution
You will be removing packages, make sure not to remove any important ones like kernel, glibc and so on - it happened before!

How to test?

What do we want to test exactly? We want to ensure, that packages serching/installing/updating/uninstalling works, that it works in all the different ways users are using it and that Presto related tools also works.


Update F11 Beta system to F11 Snapshot1

  1. Start with the F11 Beta system
  2. Set-up our repo with pre-generated presto metadata
  3. Ensure you have yum-presto plugin installed and available
  4. Update the system - yum should be downloading *.drpm files instead of *.rpm ones
    • You may test it on a single package first (yum list updates, choose one and then yum update <chosen package>)

on command-line

See this test-plan: QA:Testcase_YumPresto_basics_cmd

with PackageKit

  1. rpm -q yum yum-presto PackageKit PackageKit-yum PackageKit-yum-plugin gnome-packagekit ...
  2. Try to search/install/upgrade/remove few packages (test it as a non root user) in gnome-packagekit (System -> Administration -> Add/Remove Software)

with other GUI tools

  1. rpm -q yum yum-presto yumex ...
  2. Try to search/install/upgrade/remove/group* few packages using your favourite GUI tool (e.g. yumex)

related tools

Note: you will need createrepo-0.9.7-4.fc11 or newer from koji (older ones had a bug).

See QA:Testcase_YumPresto_createrepo or test whatever else.


We will store results in the table below. This page is editable without a Fedora login for those who do not want to sign the CLA, but if you do have a FAS account, please log in before editing.

If you find a bug, please report it through Bugzilla and make it depend on bug PrestoTestDay (just put PrestoTestDay into the Blocks: field). If you do not have an account there, you may create one, or just ask somebody on the #fedora-qa to report the bug for you.
