|Tue Apr 13, 2010||ALL DAY||#fedora-test-day)|
What to test?
Today's installment of Fedora Test Day will focus on the Nouveau graphics driver for NVIDIA graphics cards.
If you come to this page after the test day is completed, your testing of Nouveau is still valuable, and you can use the information on this page to test Nouveau with your graphics card and provide feedback.
The following cast of characters will be available for testing, workarounds, bug fixes, and general discussion.
- Development - Ben Skeggs (IRC: darktama)
- Quality Assurance - Adam Williamson (IRC: adamw), Chris Campbell (IRC: Tech33)
What's needed to test
- An NVIDIA graphics adapter. To confirm whether you have supporting hardware, run the following command:
/sbin/lspci -d 10de: | grep -iq VGA && echo "Join Nouveau Fedora Test Day" || echo "No nVidia graphics hardware found."
- An updated Fedora 38 pre-release, or the special live image (see below)
- Your hardware profile uploaded to Smolt according to these instructions
- Make sure to back up your existing
xorg.conffile, if you have one, so you can recover if the nouveau driver causes you trouble
How to test?
Update your machine
If you're running Fedora 38, make sure you have all the current updates for it installed, using the update manager. If you have any problems running the test, please also install these updated builds from Koji and re-test before reporting a failure:
Or you can use a live image:
Optionally, you may download a non-destructive Fedora 38 live image for your architecture. Tips on using a live image are available at FedoraLiveCD.
Follow each of these test cases:
- QA:Testcase_nouveau_rendercheck (requires 15 minutes)
- QA:Testcase_nouveau_glx (highly experimental, expected to fail in many cases, don't be surprised!)
Multihead test case:
You will need two or more monitors to perform the multihead test.
Report your results
If you have problems with any of the tests, report a bug to Bugzilla usually for the component xorg-x11-drv-nouveau. If you are unsure about exactly how to file the report, just ask on IRC and we will help you. Follow the instructions on this page to ensure you include sufficient information in the report. Once you have completed the tests, add your results to the Results table below, following the example results from Adam Williamson 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 trouble, enter the word FAIL, with a footnote indicator, and put a link to the bug report in the comments column (as in the example line). If you could not perform one test (for example, you cannot perform the more advanced tests because the basic one fails, or you cannot perform the multihead test as you have only one display), enter the word N/A. In the comments column, you can enter the model name and PCI device ID (vendor ID is usually 10DE) of your card, if you know it - you can usually find this information in the output of the command lspci -nn.
