As per the Fedora 22 schedule [1], Fedora 22 Alpha Test Compose 5 
(TC5) is now available for testing.

** PLEASE NOTE **: This will likely be a short-lived compose - while 
it was spinning we discovered the likely cause of the bug that causes 
live image boots to often fail with a kernel crash, and I have already 
requested TC6 with the fix for that bug. So go ahead and test TC5 if 
you like, but be aware that TC6 will likely appear in 6-8 hours. If 
you have limited test time or bandwidth, you might want to wait for 
that one!

TC5 live images are likely to suffer from the bug, which means they 
will likely sometimes or often fail to boot, with a kernel NULL 
pointer de-reference visible if you boot without 'rhgb quiet'. See 
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1195899 .

Content information, including changes, can be found at 
https://fedorahosted.org/rel-eng/ticket/6102#comment:5 . Please see 
the following pages for download links and testing instructions. 
Normally dl.fedoraproject.org should provide the fastest download, but 
download-ib01.fedoraproject.org is available as a mirror (with an 
approximately 1 hour lag) in case of trouble. To use it, just replace 
"dl" with "download-ib01" in the download URL.





Workstation and Desktop:








Ideally, all Alpha priority test cases for each of these test pages 
[2] should pass in order to meet the Alpha Release Criteria [3]. For 
the Fedora 22 cycle we are also trying to run the Beta and Final tests 
at this time, to try and identify later release blocker bugs as early 
as possible.

Help is available on #fedora-qa on irc.freenode.net [4], or on the 
test list [5].
