Use caution
Remember, rawhide is a development branch. Use an installation you don't mind getting broken.

How to test?

Update your machine

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

Live Image

Optionally, you may download a non-destructive rawhide live image for your architecture. Tips on using a live image are available at FedoraLiveCD. And install to disc

Latest syslinux package?
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 upgrade to the latest syslinux package using
yum --enablerepo=rawhide update syslinux


Follow each of these test cases:

Report your results

  • Purpose of first two tests is to install rawhide in minimal variant - one result for each architecture is enough
  • Third test case is to detect unnecessary dependencies in packages you use regularly. Consult your findings on IRC before reporting a bug
  • If you are unsure about exactly how to file the report, just ask on IRC and we will help you. Once you have completed the tests, add your results to the Results table below.
  • 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, primarly see instruction in testcase
