The lists<BR>&gt; are Beta, QA, and Release. For the most part, they will overlap quite<BR>&gt; heavily, but I still see the need for keeping them separate.<BR>&gt; <BR>&gt; In the case of Beta and Release, we'll also want to ask people for<BR>&gt; specific information about their environment (hardware, software, etc.)<BR>&gt; that will help us to troubleshoot the issues and focus more energy on<BR>&gt; the worst problems.<BR>&gt; <BR>&gt; I'll start us off:<BR>&gt; <BR>&gt; - Which media did you download? (Minimal, Universal, LiveCD, LiveDVD)<BR>&gt; - Did the media pass MD5/SHA1 checks? (If you didn't check, say so.)<BR>&gt; <BR>&gt; - Does the media boot on your system?<BR>&gt; - If not, what errors were reported?<BR>&gt; - Did you use any command line options?<BR>&gt; - If so, which ones?<BR>&gt; <BR>&gt; - After boot, were all of your devices detected?<BR>&gt; - If not, what was not detected?<BR>&gt; - What driver does this device use?<BR>&gt; - Is the driver on the media? (Say "don't know" if you're unsure.)<BR>&gt; <BR>&gt; - Did previous releases work where this one is not?<BR>&gt; <BR>&gt; - What chipset is your motherboard? IDE? SATA?<BR>&gt; - Do you use external controllers for SATA/SAS/SCSI/etc.?<BR>&gt; - If so, which ones?<BR>&gt; - How much RAM is in your system?<BR>&gt; - Did you try to boot with "docache" enabled?<BR>&gt; - What video card(s) do you have?<BR>&gt; - Was it properly detected?<BR>&gt; - Did X start properly?<BR>&gt; <BR>&gt; This should be a pretty decent start and give everyone an idea of what<BR>&gt; we would be looking for with these checklists. What things do you think<BR>&gt; need to be checked for and what information do you think we would need<BR>&gt; to properly diagnose any issues?<BR>&gt; <BR>&gt; -- <BR>&gt; Chris Gianelloni<BR>&gt; Release Engineering Strategic Lead<BR>&gt; Games Developer<BR>&gt; -- <BR>&gt; gentoo-releng@g.o mailing list<BR>&gt; <BR></P><br /><hr />Express yourself instantly with MSN Messenger! <a href='' target='_new'>MSN Messenger</a></body>
