I first had to create a FAS account as I hadn't yet taken all the steps to become a packager. I got side-tracked by an incorrect error message in FAS and had some problems before I could report that. Then I had to create a Smolt profile. SmoltGUI crashed but I could work around the crash by changing the locale. Smolt using two kinds of UUIDs caused some confusion. I could eventually go through the test cases for Intel graphics a week after the actual test day. See also the next question: > 4. Were you able to locate and download installation media for testing? > Did it function as expected? Live CD images were linked from the wiki pages. I had no problems downloading them. I eventually managed to make a working live USB stick from the one for the Intel test day, after I transferred it to my work computer where I had Fedora 10 and could install the latest Syslinux from Rawhide. It wasn't possible to do this on Fedora 9. The live USB stick I made from the CD image for the Nvidia test day was more dead than live. It wouldn't boot, so I couldn't participate in that test day. > 5. What follow-up actions do you expect after the Test Day? Are your > expectations currently being met? I expected that someone would attempt to fix the bugs I reported. No such attempts have been mentioned in Bugzilla so far. I suppose I'll se whether they've been fixed when I upgrade to Fedora 11. Perhaps there would have been more interest in my reports if I had submitted them during the actual test day. > 6. Would you participate again in future Fedora Test Days? If they cover some functionality that's particularly important to me or some less than common hardware that I have. Björn Persson
