Do you have a nVIDIA graphics card? Do you want to help ensure users have a smooth experience if they choose to use the proprietary or open source drivers?
We are looking for committed volunteers to test nVIDIA with proprietary and open source
drivers. The goal of this testing is to catch regressions early in the cycle, and fix bugs before they reach a major audience. It is for Ubuntu 18.04 (Bionic) or Ubuntu 18.10 (Cosmic), in laptop or PC machines.
If you want to be part of the team you will need:
- A computer with a nVIDIA graphics card
- A spare partition on that system (Only If you wish to run the install test)
- If you don’t have a spare partition you can easily create one.
- An Internet connection
The cycle starts at 08/29/2018 and finishes 2 weeks later at 09/12/2018
Later In this post you will find the setting up instructions. Additionally, for testing details instructions and how the QA tracker works, you can visit:
QA Tracker details
and follow the detailed instructions.
Thanks for helping to make Ubuntu even better!
== Setting Up Instructions ==
- If you wish to test the installation process, we suggest you to have a spare partition, because the program involves fresh installations of Ubuntu. If you don’t have a spare partition, you can create one following this steps: Resize partition instructions. If you don’t want to test the installation process, you should run the test that involves booting a live session.
- I know some of you have several systems, but our tracker has some limitations that prevent to provide two results for the same account. To avoid creating too much trouble, just select one of your systems and test ALWAYS with that system.
- You have to have an account in Launchpad. We are going to use it to generate data (it will be publicly available). If you don’t have a launchpad account, follow these steps:
- Go to Launchpad.
- Click on “Log In/register”
- Enter your email address and select “I do not have an Ubuntu One account”
- Enter the data and verify your email.
- With your launchpad credentials, you have to login into the tracker: http://xorg.qa.ubuntu.com
- Once you’re done with the tracker, add yourself to the list of participants in this page.
- You’re all set!
