Fedora Tested Laptops packages and live CD bootstrapping

Installation Instructions

This repository is only to test changes that might break on deployed machines!

You can install the fedora-laptop-testing package to try out the test suite. On fedora the following commands should do the trick:

# dnf copr enable benzea/hwtesting # dnf copr enable gicmo/power # dnf install fedora-laptop-testing

It is a good idea to uninstall it again once you are done with testing as the package modifies some settings.

After installation run:

# systemctl enable fedora-laptop-testing # touch /var/lib/fedora-laptop-testing/job-start

to enable the service and then reboot the machine. You should be presented with a logged in GNOME desktop showing the test progress and prompting for user interaction. At the end fedora-laptop-testing-upload will be run for you to upload the results to the server. The service will disable itself again.

For now results can be seen on

Running on EPEL7

To install on EPEL7/RHEL7:

# curl -o /etc/yum.repos.d/benzea-hwtesting-epel-7.repo # curl -o /etc/yum.repos.d/gicmo-power-epel-7.repo # curl -o /etc/yum.repos.d/avocado-el.repo # yum install # yum install fedora-laptop-testing

Then run as usual. This adds the above repositories and also



  • The package modified the system. It for example adds a new user, modifies the GDM configuration and overrides the avocado configuration. It is not advisable to keep this package installed on a production machine.
  • The service will try to the kdump service. Ideally you should add e.g. crashkernel=256MB to your kernel command line for this to work.
  • If Avocado >= 50 is available and the kernel crash dump is generated then testing will be resumed and the crash dump uploaded (if found in /var/crash)
