I'm overdue for a blog about last weeks Fedora Test Day. Our focus this round was exercising Anaconda NetworkManager integration in Fedora 10 Beta. In preparation for the day, David Cantrell pulled together several fixes for issues discovered since the beta was released.

In addition to pulling an all nighter, David outlined expectations by way of a test matrix. Despite the presence of bug#465250, the following test matrix was used throughout the day to ensure all common methods of booting the installer and providing network configuration were exercised.

PXE Bootboot.iso
Anaconda NetworkManager Test Matrix
Boot argumentdhcpstaticdhcpstatic
Network device selection parameters
ksdevice=eth0
ksdevice=MACADDR
ksdevice=link
ksdevice=BOOTIF
Network device configuration parameters
ip=X.X.X.X
(also includes gateway=, dns= and netmask=)
ip=dhcp
Other parameters that require an active network connection
ks=URL
updates=URL
repo=URL


Thanks to all who helped gather test feedback for David last week (including johannbg). By populating the test matrix we can be sure that Anaconda and NetworkManager will be the best of friends for Fedora 10.

Stay tuned for another Fedora Test Day focusing on GlitchFreeAudio and SecurityAudit. Hope to see you there :)
