'''Downloading via rsync:'''

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

* Rsync server: 'cdimage.debian.org::cdimage/.stretch_release/debian-cd/'
* Listing isos 'n that server: rsync -rdt cdimage.debian.org::cdimage/.stretch_release/debian-cd
* Syncing an image to a local file, first rsync source then destination file: rsync -zavP cdimage.debian.org::cdimage/.stretch_release/debian-cd/amd64/iso-cd/debian-9.0.0-amd64-netinst.iso debian-9.0.0-amd64-netinst.iso

problem!

=== #1 guided partitioning can show issues on setups with very small disks ===

Test run 023: 16GB VM image with separate /, /home, /var and /tmp at
suggested sizes. Installation fails (out of disk space on /)

|| /target || 3.1G ||
|| /target/home || 8.9G ||
|| /target/tmp || 316M ||
|| /target/var || 1.3G ||
  
Changing the sizes of / (sawpped size with /home) fixed the issues

=== #2 multi-arch amd64/i386/source DVD not big enough ===

This DVD image just doesn't contain enough packages to be useful for a
graphical installation on its own. Dropping it for this release, as
it's just not useful any more.

=== #3 multi-arch netinst fails to start i386 in UEFI mode when selecting "graphical install" option ===

On the amd64/i386 multi-arch netinst image, testing showed problems
trying to boot via UEFI on an i386 virtual machine. This still needs
testing on real i386 hardware to verify the problem.

=== #4 KDE live desktop unstable on some (tested) hardware ===

There is a segmentation fault in kmanage - the first obvious symptom
will be a failure to atuomatically log in. A workaround is to switch
to VT1 and wait for the desktop to start there. This has been
reproduced on hardware (using Intel graphics?), but not when testing
in a virtual machine.

=== #5 Live images isolinux menu display problems ===

When booted in BIOS mode using isolinux, some of the localisation
options from the "Debian Live with Localisation Support" submenu are
displayed incorrectly. They may appear intermittently and then disappear.
They can still be selected and used - be careful when selecting one.

=== #6 Live images are not configuring UTF-8 console correctly ===

After boot, X-based terminal programs will display non-ASCII
characters correctly, but the Linux console is not. The system is
configured to use UTF-8 locales, but the console is defaulting to
ISO-8859-15. There is a quick workaround: "dpkg-reconfigure
console-setup" and select "UTF-8".


See https://bugs.debian.org/864955

Release testing

Simple: list here the tests that you've done on the images you've downloaded. Help us make this release (Stretch 9.0) the best one ever!

We need to know, for each test:

  • architecture
  • type of hardware (make, model etc. if relevant)
  • image used (full filename please!)
  • installer display type (text/gui/serial/?)
  • how you booted it (ISO / USB stick / network etc.)
  • language / kb layout etc. chosen
  • network / no network connected
  • filesystem layout choices
  • choice of desktop
  • did all go OK? If not, we need to know today - tell us on IRC

  • anything unexpected?

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.

Where to download from

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!

Downloading via rsync:

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

* Rsync server: 'cdimage.debian.org::cdimage/.stretch_release/debian-cd/' * Listing isos 'n that server: rsync -rdt cdimage.debian.org::cdimage/.stretch_release/debian-cd * Syncing an image to a local file, first rsync source then destination file: rsync -zavP cdimage.debian.org::cdimage/.stretch_release/debian-cd/amd64/iso-cd/debian-9.0.0-amd64-netinst.iso debian-9.0.0-amd64-netinst.iso

List of tests

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

  • Make sure that the boot menu comes up where applicable:
    • syslinux for i386 (CD boot)
    • syslinux for i386 (USB boot)
    • syslinux for amd64 via BIOS (CD boot)
    • syslinux for amd64 via BIOS (USB boot)
    • grub for i386 via UEFI (CD boot)
    • grub for i386 via UEFI (USB boot)
    • grub for amd64 via UEFI (CD boot)
    • grub for amd64 via UEFI (USB boot)
  • Make sure that the boot menu is functional:
    • is it visible properly (i.e. no graphics corruption etc.)?
    • can you scroll up and down?
    • can you select submenus?
  • On other platforms without menus, check that the image boots and displays startup text:
    • yaboot on powerpc
    • etc...

debian-installer

  • Check that the selected installation type starts up:
    • Text mode
    • Graphics mode (where appropriate)
    • Serial mode (where appropriate)
    • With speech assistance (where appropriate)
  • Select your own language and preferred keyboard layout etc.
    • feel free to try other langauges and layouts if you're comfortable with them; we really want to get good coverage of the common choices. will be covered already!
  • Choose whether to connect your test machine to the network or not. We want to test installation using:
    • just the contents of the CD images
    • with networking, but no extra mirrors specified (i.e. security.d.o only)
    • with access to a package mirror
    • If you do allow a net connection, note whether IPv4 and/or IPv6 worked correctly. Feel free to try a static networking setup instead of the default DHCP.
  • Set up user accounts as you normally would for any installation.
  • Try a variety of different filesystem layouts:
    • auto layout
    • guided
    • manual
  • Please try some different filesystems, and ideally some software RAID and LVM options too. Be aware that if you want to test encryption, it will take a *long* time to write random data to initialise things, so only set up a small LVM area unless you want to block the installation for (potentially) many hours!
  • Go through tasksel and pick a semi-random selection of the available tasks.
    • Make sure that there are appropriate tasks listed:
      • The desktop task will only appear if you have enough of the task available (i.e. a full CD/DVD etc. or you've added a network mirror)
      • "Standard system utilities" should always appear.
      • Note down what you selected, and make sure it all installs OK.
  • Finalising the installation: make sure that the appropriate bootloader installs correctly and let it reboot.

After installation

  • Check the machine boots ok and the selected desktop (or console-only system) starts correctly when you log in.
  • If you have a desktop, check it contains a reasonable-looking (if minimal!) set of programs.
  • If you have lots of time: while here, try to launch each application from the default menus and ensure they start; on the desktop's default panels (if any), check that all widgets are functioning. These bugs should be filed against the applications themselves.

Finally

  • Report back...!

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...

After boot, X-based terminal programs will display non-ASCII characters correctly, but the Linux console is not. The system is configured to use UTF-8 locales, but the console is defaulting to ISO-8859-15. There is a quick workaround: "dpkg-reconfigure console-setup" and select "UTF-8".
