Sorry for the short notice everyone, but this week is Graphics Test Week again. It’s time to make sure the major graphics drivers are in shape for Fedora 16. Tomorrow, 2011-09-06, is Nouveau Test Day. Wednesday, 2011-09-07, is Radeon Test Day. And Thursday, 2011-09-08, is Intel graphics Test Day. All the events take place in #fedora-test-day on Freenode IRC.
As always, the more testing we can get, the better. Fedora graphics developers and QA team members will be on hand to help with testing and debugging. If you’ve been to a graphics Test Day before it would be great to check in and see if any bugs you hit have been resolved, or if things are still working well. If you’ve never done one before, please come along and add your hardware to the repertoire!
The testing is easy and there are full instructions on the wiki pages. You don’t need a Fedora account to do the testing or to file the results, but you will need a Bugzilla account to file bugs.
If you can’t make the day for your graphics card, don’t worry – you can come along on either of the other days too, or do the testing later and add your results to the wiki page. Even filed ‘late’ they will still be useful!
To join in, just visit the page for your graphics card and follow the test instructions, then add your results to the table at the bottom of the page – there are instructions on how to do it. You can join #fedora-test-day to chat with the QA team and the developers.
Please come along and help us make sure Fedora 16′s graphics experience is second to none!
