You can then boot the live image and run the tests without worries of messing up with your OS.
You can also install the required kernel version on a Virtual Machine running an up to date Fedora release and do the test in the VM. In this case you can just add https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/jforbes/kernel-stabilization/[this] *Copr repository* on the Fedora distro running in your VM.
When you finish with the tests, remember to turn SELinux boolean selinuxuser_execheap back to default state, by issuing the command: *sudo semanage boolean -m --off selinuxuser_execheap*
What to do during Kernel Test Days
Using Koji
Using a Virtual Machine
Using a test day image
To submit results linked to your FAS username: edit the `.config` file with `submit=authenticated` and `username=<your FAS username>`
To submit results anonymously: edit the `.config` file with `submit=anonymous`
To run the performance test suites, use this command:
To run the basic set of tests, use this command:
this will download the same folder that you find in the test day image, with the testing scripts. When the download is finished, enter the kernel-tests folder:
The results of your test will be uploaded https://apps.fedoraproject.org/kerneltest/[here]
The main goal of a Kernel Test Day is to test a new kernel on many different machines as possible, so every new Kernel Test Day is announced some days in advance with a https://fedoramagazine.org/[fedoramagazine] post.
The first thing to do is to get the right kernel version to test. There are different ways to get the kernel and test it:
The expected result is that the tests pass. However, some tests may fail occasionally due to system load. Anyway, add whatever results you got from the tests on the dedicated result page of the Kernel Test day!
Thanks for helping the fedora team in testing the newest kernel on your machine!
