It's Fedora Graphics Test Week

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.
