#28 Fedora 29 Silverblue Test Day
Opened 6 months ago by sinnykumari. Modified 5 months ago

During Fedora 28, we tested Silverblue(FAW) as part of Fedora 28 Cloud/Atomic Test Day.

With F29 approaching, it will be nice to plan in advance a Test Day for Fedora 29 Silverblue. We have a QA ticket opened by @sumantrom to have a Test Day for Fedora Silverblue.

This ticket is to come up with a date when we can have Test Day and Test cases which we want to get tested by community during F29 Silverblue Test Day.

According to current F29 schedule -
- Preferred target for Beta Release 2018-09-18
- Final Freeze 2018-10-09
- Preferred target for GA 2018-10-23


From both Silverblue regular and APAC meeting, we agreed upon having Fedora 29 Silverblue Test Day on 20th September.
It works for QA as well and has been added to QA Calendar

@sumantrom and @siddharthvipul1 will co-ordinate on writing content for Fedora Silverblue Test Day. Sumantro will help in getting Test Day article published in Fedora Magazine which we are planning to get published on 16th September. Vipul will help in getting Test Day article published in Communityblog which we are planning to get published on 19th September.

Silverblue Test Day wiki page is up https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Test_Day:2018-09-20_Silverblue_Testday now. Link of latest Silverblue media to be tested will be added before Test Day.

Some initial Silverblue Test cases has been created at http://testdays.fedorainfracloud.org/events/47 . @mclasen , @otaylor and others, can you please review them and see if existing test cases are ok? Also, can we have additional test cases (if any) listed in comment so that @sumantrom and other QA members can get additional test cases created as well?

I'm currently testing

  1. Rebase from Silverblue 28 to 29 and rollbacks. 28 to 29 currently does not work.
  2. AMD old-ish (Sea Islands) GPU usage. I've run into some things that should probably be tested on the latest AMD cards; I've got work-arounds for mine. The symptom is that you can log in with Wayland but not with GNOME on Xorg - X crashes.
  3. OpenCL. A lot of the issues are probably upstream in freedesktop.org packages but some of it is Fedora. The test case is to install pocl and the Mesa OpenCL libraries and run clinfo and clpeak.

Hey!

I will be more than happy to write test cases and get more coverage!
Thanks, Sinny for starting this thread. The announcement is now public

Thanks

I'm currently testing

Rebase from Silverblue 28 to 29 and rollbacks. 28 to 29 currently does not work.
AMD old-ish (Sea Islands) GPU usage. I've run into some things that should probably be tested on the latest AMD cards; I've got work-arounds for mine. The symptom is that you can log in with Wayland but not with GNOME on Xorg - X crashes.
OpenCL. A lot of the issues are probably upstream in freedesktop.org packages but some of it is Fedora. The test case is to install pocl and the Mesa OpenCL libraries and run clinfo and clpeak.

The system is now up and running Silverblue 29 Beta 1.3, installed with Anaconda.

Some suggested tests that might be good to add to the list:

  • Start from an f28 Silverblue install and rebase to f29 by running rpm-ostree rebase fedora/29/x86_64/silverblue

  • Start from an 28 Silverblue install, update it with rpm-ostree upgrade and then rebase to f29

  • Repeat the same with a non-standard partition setup

  • For the "update notification" test notice that gnome-software now does automatic updates for Flatpaks by default. We should update the test description to factor that in, and test the various settings that exist around that - whether to do automatic updates or not, and whether to notify about them or not.

I was doing that until the 1.3 beta showed up. I never did get Silverblue
29 to come up that way on my workstation. There were display issues. Those
went away when I installed from the Silverblue 29 ISO.

@sinnykumari updated the test cases to the event.

@sumantrom Thanks, can you update test rpm-ostree upgrade to rpm-ostree upgrade and rebase becasue we are performing both of them in test on a F28 silverblue machine?

Is there going to be a beta 1.4 ISO? I've already tested with the beta 1.3.

right now beta 1.3 is what we're going to suggest people use. There is a beta 1.5 running. If that completes successfully then we'll use that. https://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org/compose/29/Fedora-29-20180919.1/

Thanks! I've got it and will do a test install in a VM - my hardware is tied up troubleshooting the Silverblue 28 - 29 rebase display issues.
