As per the Fedora 22 schedule , 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
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
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
 should pass in order to meet the Alpha Release Criteria . 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
Help is available on #fedora-qa on irc.freenode.net , or on the
test list .
