The Fedora team this week is hosting their usual Graphics Test Week again, this time for packages that will be making their way into Fedora 15 in just a couple of months. Today is the Nouveau graphics driver test day followed by the Radeon test today tomorrow and on Thursday it will be testing of Intel graphics.

It's basically a matter of checking to ensure basic functionality on a wide range of Intel/NVIDIA/AMD hardware is working properly for the open-source Linux GPU drivers. Testing is quite simple and there is also a LiveCD image available.

This Fedora 15 Graphics Test Week is even more important this time around to see how these open-source graphics drivers are playing with the GNOME 3.0 SHell / Mutter.

For those interested in helping out, stop by Adam Williamson's blog for the testing details.
