Simple: list here the tests that you've done on the images you've downloaded. Help us make the Jessie release 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.

As we build images during release day, they will appear in the following locations:

Please do not publicise this too widely, 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!

Our preferred list of tests to be run is below. Please take a 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 a time in UTC and INPROGRESS. Once you're done, change INPROGRESS to SUCCESS or FAILURE. Let's try to avoid duplication of effort!

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

Finally

List of wanted tests

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 achived and post often...

Errata

(Collected from the notes above)

i386 Mac netinst doesn't ask for extra CDs, but will work with a mirror (783562) - design flaw rather than a bug as such.

powerpc startup text still talks about choosing desktop on the boot command line, needs updating (783569)

[1] powerpc brings up warning about 'quik' needing to be on partition2, should be at partition managment stage not after installing base system, configureing package manager, then selecting and installing software (hours later!)

[2] installation failed at end of installation of 'quik boot loader' syslog entries:

Non-install media issues

(Please file bugs if someone hasn't already)

Can't install both Gnome and XFCE at the same time. Problem is reported in syslog as failure to install gnome-core; is actually believed to be a conflict between evince and evince-gtk. (783571)

Gnome in an i386 kvm fails to start in fallback mode - known issue (776911)

Summary of these issues added to https://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/errata .
