Testing the Fedora 11 Installation Guide

Every release, the dedicated volunteers in the Documentation team produce the Fedora Installation Guide, an exhaustive and detailed guide to installing Fedora. For Fedora 11, they have asked us in the QA team to co-ordinate ‘testing’ of the Installation Guide. By doing installations following the instructions in the Installation Guide, we can find issues in both the Guide and the installation process itself, and thus improve both.

So, I have written up an installation guide ‘Test Case’.

As you can see, essentially what we’d like you to do is to take a look at the Fedora 11 Installation Guide as it currently stands, and try installing either Fedora 11 Beta or current Rawhide according to the instructions found in the Installation Guide. Report any problems you find – any bugs in the installer itself, or errors or missing information or bits where what’s written in the guide doesn’t correspond to what you see in the actual installer – to Bugzilla.

As this is a wide-ranging case which doesn’t involve any particular component or developer, we aren’t running a Test Day for this, but instead would like it to be an ongoing process throughout the rest of the Fedora 11 release cycle. Please, if you have the spare time and resources, try and take part in this testing! Please discuss any questions, problems or issues in the forum thread. Thanks!
