Testing the Fedora 11 Installation Guide

Hi, folks!

Every release, the dedicated volunteers in the Documentation team
produce the Fedora Installation Guide, an exhaustive and detailed guide
to installing Fedora. For Fedora 11, they have asked us in the QA team
to co-ordinate 'testing' of the Installation Guide. By doing
installations following the instructions in the Installation Guide, we
can find issues in both the Guide and the installation process itself,
and thus improve both.

So, I have written up an installation guide 'Test Case' here:


As you can see, essentially what we'd like you to do is to take a look
at the Fedora 11 Installation Guide as it currently stands - it's at
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/install-guide/ - and try installing either
Fedora 11 Beta or current Rawhide according to the instructions found in
the Installation Guide. Report any problems you find - any bugs in the
installer itself, or errors or missing information or bits where what's
written in the guide doesn't correspond to what you see in the actual
installer - to Bugzilla.

As this is a wide-ranging case which doesn't involve any particular
component or developer, we aren't running a Test Day for this, but
instead would like it to be an ongoing process throughout the rest of
the Fedora 11 release cycle. Please, if you have the spare time and
resources, try and take part in this testing! Please discuss any
questions, problems or issues as a reply to this thread. Thanks!
