This page records test results for the Fedora 16 Alpha RC1 Security Lab Spin.

How to test

  1. Download the ISO images for testing: FIXME: point to the current Security Lab SPIN ISO.
  2. Install, if appropriate (some tests may be intended to test the un-installed live environment).
  3. Perform one or more of the test cases and add your results to the table below.
  4. If a test fails, file a bug report. If the bug is in the default desktop, propose the bug as a blocker for the appropriate release (see blocker bug process). If the bug is in any other desktop, propose it as a nice-to-have bug for the appropriate release (see nice-to-have bug process).
  5. Don't install updates before performing any of the tests, as the updates available come from updates-testing and are not part of the proposed released package set. For this reason, we recommend leaving the update installation test for last.
Virtual machine testing
In most cases, testing in a virtual machine is OK.
Network Lab requirement
Some tests require a network lab with various services like SSH, HTTP, SMTP, DNS ..., and the firewall configured correctly to allow those services
