Call for testing: Fedora 28 blocker / FE updates
by Adam Williamson
Hi folks! I'm not doing a full blocker status mail right now (it's Saturday...), but we do have several updates intended to fix proposed or accepted blocker or FE issues ATM. It'd be great if we could get testing on these updates so they're ready to go (or, of course, if you find issues, we know *not* to send them out). Here they are: 1.
This is for shim-signed, part of UEFI booting, especially Secure Boot booting. If you have an SB-enabled setup, please check you can boot with the packages from this update, and +1 it if so. 2.
This is the GNOME 3.28.0 mega-update. It's proposed as an FE. It'd be really useful to have lots of testing of it by Monday so we can make an informed decision about whether it's safe to pull it in. Note, there's a live image available for testing that includes the bits from this update (thanks Kalev):
This one should prevent anaconda from automatically quitting after a Workstation live install. To test it, boot a recent Workstation live, then update these packages before running an install. At the end of install, you should see the 'Install complete' screen that requires you to click 'Quit' before anaconda will close - it shouldn't just automatically close anaconda (and auto-suspend the system, if you hadn't moved the mouse for 20 minutes!) like before. 4.
This is related to this Change:
If you have a Thunderbolt port and some kind of Thunderbolt accessory, you should be able to test according to the 'How To Test' section of the Change page. 5.
This is for MATE. It's related to getting the correct desktop background in. I'm not sure whether this update alone should result in the correct background being included, or whether further changes are needed after it lands. See
for more details. 6.
I believe this relates to upgrades from Fedora 27 to Fedora 28 for x86_64 systems with the i686 nss-pem package installed (a common reason for this is if you have 32-bit wine installed), so that's basically the scenario to test: try that upgrade with and without updates-testing enabled. 7.
This is just rebuilds of a bunch of different packages against OpenCV 3.4. There's no reason any of them should fail...if you happen to use any of the packages in the update, please just check it still works at least as well as before, and +1 the update.
