Hi folks! As some of you know, part of the release validation process is
to make sure the fixes for blocker and freeze exception bugs are tested
and confirmed, and give karma to the updates so they can be pushed to
For F22 Beta, the following updates for blocker/FE bugs have been
included in Beta RC2, and we need to confirm the fixes and provide
karma. It would be great if folks could help with this. Of course not
everyone will have the necessary configuration or Cloud accounts or
whatever to test every fix, don't worry! Just do whatever you can if you
have some time to help out.
This one fixes https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1197894 . You
can give it +1 karma if you test a 22 Beta RC2 Cloud image - see the
test cases at
and find that it boots successfully and the root partition is resized to
fit the space available.
This one fixes https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1210428 .
It's another Cloud issue: to test this one, you need to deploy a cloud
instance and then reboot it. If that works (and the resize still
happens), you can +1 the update.
This one fixes https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1164492 . You
can give it +1 karma if you boot the 22 Beta RC2 Workstation live image
(any arch) and confirm that the libvirt default NAT network
configuration is *not* set up: that is, there's no virbr0 interface, and
the package libvirt-daemon-config-network is not installed.
This one fixes https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1210483 .
Testing the blocker fix requires you to have an Active Directory domain
controller available (you'd have to install Fedora 22 Beta RC2 Server
and then enrol the newly installed system in the AD domain using realmd
- test cases at
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Test_Results:Fedora_22_Beta_RC2_Server#Domain_joining_tests:_Active_Directory - but if you have a FreeIPA domain you could at least check this realmd build works OK for enrolling in that domain.
This fixes https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1209602 and also
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1207872 (an FE bug), both
related to deployment of the database 'Server Role'. To test it, install
Fedora 22 Beta RC2 Server (DVD, or if you use the netinst, ensure you
get that version of rolekit from updates-testing) and then try to deploy
the database server role...which I can't find any instructions for ATM,
but sgallagh might be able to provide some. Then check you can log into
the deployed pgsql instance with the password from the role config.
This fixes https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1210861 , an FE
issue. You can +1 it so long as the F22 Beta RC2 KDE live image seems to
be basically working fine and this update doesn't seem to cause any
issues - kwin is involved in just about anything you do in KDE,
obviously, so as long as the KDE validation tests are good we can be
pretty confident this is fine.
This fixes https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1204677 , an FE
security issue. I don't know the details of how to verify the security
fix is good, but you can give it a general +1 if zip file manipulation
in dependent packages seems to be working. "sudo repoquery
--whatrequires libzip" will list packages with a direct dep on libzip.
This fixes https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1207079 , another
FE issue. Test for this one is pretty simple: make sure you get a
screenshot when you press the 'Print Screen' key in 22 Beta RC2 KDE.
This fixes https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1204796 , another
FE security issue, also in KDE. Going by the bug description, to verify
the fix you'd need to check what was logged in the file
'WebpageIcons.db' somehow (I'm assuming it's a simple DB mapping URLs to
favicons), but you can give it a general +1 if web browsing with
Konqueror works OK in 22 Beta RC2 KDE.
Again, whatever help folks can provide on testing these would be great -
thanks! And of course, we need all the help we can get filling out the
Beta RC2 test matrices, see
https://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/test-announce/2015-April/001040.html for all the details on that.
