On the tests again!

Mageia 1 Beta 1 is just out and it’s now time for testing. Let’s improve the quality of our favourite distro!

We have organized 2 testing days on April 11th and 12th. We’re testing the Beta 1 ISOs; please focus on these areas:

  • the list of software packages included in ISOs and repositories: please file a bug report if you notice that a package is missing and include an explanation of why we should add it;
  • upgrading from Mandriva Linux 2010.1 and 2010.2: we want to have an easy upgrade from these to Mageia 1 Final release, so these tests are really important. Please have a look on the upgrade test page;
  • hardware detection: please test your hardware configuration and file a bug report for any problem you experience;
  • the installation process: please test the Mageia installer from Beta 1 ISOs, following this installation testing procedure;
  • Asian locales (and input methods) and localisation in general.

You will find all sorts of help on the various Mageia support channels:

Thanks in advance for your contributions.

    How to configure the bottom panel (dimensions) – doesn’t seem to work to right-click on it.

    I downloaded the beta iso, burnt it to DVD using k3b (which checks the validity first).
    When I tried booting from it, it stuck at a text help screen. I couldn’t get any further.
