This page records base validation testing test results for the Fedora 18 Alpha RC2 release.
How to test
- Download the ISO images for testing: please use either a DVD installer image, or a live image. Tests in this page should not be desktop dependent, so which live image you select should not matter. Delta_ISOs for installer images are also available here. Some tests may specify use of either a traditional installer image (the DVD image, or a net install image) or a live image; please follow these specifications.
- Perform one or more of the test cases and add your results to the table below.
- If a test fails, file a bug report, and propose the bug as a blocker for the appropriate release (see blocker bug process). If you notice a problem during a test which does not constitute a complete failure of the test, you should still file a bug report, but it may not be appropriate to propose it as a blocker. Use your judgment in deciding this, with reference to the Fedora_Release_Criteria, which these tests are intended to verify. If you are unsure, err on the side of proposing the bug as a blocker.
- Don't install updates before performing any of the tests, as when you are testing pre-releases, available updates are not part of the proposed released package set.
