Bookworm Image Testing Coordination

Release testing

Simple: list here the tests that you've done on the images you've downloaded. Help us make this release (Bookworm d-i Alpha) the best one ever!

We need to know, for each test:

Thanks for your help! :-)

We will be co-ordinating on IRC (#debian-cd on irc.debian.org) to ensure that we cover the stuff we want, and to avoid duplication of efforts.

How to download test images

As we build images during release day, they will appear ready for download.

Please do not publicise locations of these images, and if you're reading this page to get early access to our images BE AWARE that anything found there is not considered to be a released image and may be replaced without warning.

Remember to verify physical install media before you start testing it!

http locations

Downloading via rsync

rsync can be used to speed up downloads if you already have a partial or previous image.

List of tests

Our preferred list of tests may be found in the tables below. Please claim an unclaimed test and run it. First priority: if you have uncommon (i.e. non-x86) hardware, please start testing that first! Otherwise, pick the first one that's not already claimed. If there's nothing that suits, please make up another test and add that then run it.

To claim a test, edit this page and add your name/nick next to it with CLAIMED. Once you're done, change CLAIMED to PASSED or FAILED. Let's try to avoid duplication of effort!

When editing the wiki page PLEASE PLEASE ensure that nobody else is already editing this page - co-ordinate in IRC first! (Hint watch IRC for a little while to see the work flow)

If you do need to list a failure report, please file a bug against installation-reports immediately and tell us more on irc. It's possible that we may need to rebuild some of the CDs or DVDs based on feedback here; other bugs found may just end up being listed in errata. Either way, we need to know ASAP.

Specific things we want to check for:

Boot time

debian-installer

After installation

List of wanted tests

DI Images

If the field isn't specified please decide what option to use yourself and note it down for reporting.

If you are able to test more than one combination please pick the most obscure first. Likewise, if you can use IPV6 please do so as most people will typically use IPV4 with DHCP clients.

The aim is to get the best spread of all possible options so if you can test an encrypted file system on top of SW RAID and LVM please do!

We'll try and keep track of test coverage achieved and post often...

DI Image Errata

Please log issues as they arrive here (and bug number when it's filed!) but don't forget to TELL US in IRC as soon as you find a problem! irc.debian.org/#debian-cd

UNTESTED IMAGES

We build these but do not have the ability to test them as we do not have the required hardware available...

We would greatly appreciate install / test reports using these images, either in irc (#debian-cd) or email debian-cd@lists.debian.org
