If you come to this page before or after the test day is completed, your testing is still valuable, and you can use the information on this page to test, file any bugs you find at Bugzilla, and add your results to the results section. If this page is more than a month old when you arrive here, please check the current schedule [on Fedocal] and see if a similar but more recent Test Day is planned or has already happened.

What to test?

Today's installment of Fedora Test Day will focus on Virtualization in Fedora 34. We will be interested covering the regular virt-install, KVM, Boxes, Vbox.

Who's available

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

What's needed to test

For starters, your physical machine should have:

  • Hardware virtualization support (e.g. Intel VT or AMD-V) (see Is My Guest Using KVM?).
  • Up to 10-20Gb free disk space. Guest images take up a lot of space.
  • Get the packages with: dnf groupinstall virtualization

As for getting the latest virt packages, you have a few options:

Fedora 34 on a physical machine

The preferred testing platform is a fully updated Fedora 34 machine. You have a few options for getting the Fedora 34 bits:

Install with CD/DVD

You can download the latest Fedora 34 composes here:

  • Workstation live .ISO:
  • Server DVD:
  • cloud image:

Run Fedora 34 in a VM with nested virtualization

Do you have a new machine with a ton of ram and storage space, running Fedora 33/32? Nested virt might be an option! This allows you to create KVM guests inside a Fedora 34 VM.

Run the tests

Visit the result page and click on the column title links to see the tests that need to be run: most column titles are links to a specific test case. Follow the instructions there, then enter your results by clicking the Enter result button for the test.

Reporting bugs

If you have problems with any of the tests, have a look in the results page.

If you don't see it, please file a new bug to Bugzilla. If you are unsure about exactly how to file the report or what other information to include, just ask on IRC #fedora-test-day or #fedora-qa and we will help you.

Test Results

The test results will be transferred after the test day is over.
