Default Fedora 16 Final RC1 desktop validation: help required!

Hey, everyone. It was a hard slog, but we finally managed to do an F16
RC1 build yesterday. We only have a few days before the go/no-go meeting
on Tuesday so we could really do with your help to get through
validation as fast as possible. If RC1 proves to pass validation we have
until Tuesday to do it, but really it'd be great if we could complete
validation over the weekend, so if any further issues are found, we have
a fighting chance to re-spin and re-validate on Monday.

The RC is available here:

http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/stage/16.RC1/

The desktop validation page, with all the tests, results matrix, and
testing instructions, is here:

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Test_Results:Fedora_16_Final_RC1_Desktop

Please, if you have any spare time at all this weekend, grab the DVD or
live image for your desktop and help us fill out the validation matrix!

If you hit a bug which is clearly a 'fail' - the test just doesn't pass
at all - if you're testing GNOME Shell, GNOME fallback, or KDE, file a
bug and mark it as blocking 'F16Blocker'. (If you don't have the
privileges to do this, mail me the bug ID and I'll do it). If you're
testing any other desktop, file a bug and mark it as blocking
'F16-accepted'. Then report your result for the test as {{result|fail|
username|bugid}}.

If you hit a bug while doing a test but it doesn't really mean the test
is completely failed - just some issue that happened to come up while
you were doing the test - file the bug, and report your result for the
test as {{result|warn|username|bugid}}. use your judgment as to whether
the bug should be proposed as a blocker or nice-to-have or not proposed
at all, depending on how serious it seems.

We fixed quite a lot of desktop issues for RC1. For Desktop, we fixed
the issue with clutter-dependent apps crashing when hardware 3D
acceleration is not available and the subsequently-discovered issue
where clutter-based video playback and capture fails when hardware 3D
isn't available. For KDE, we fixed the two issues which prevented KDE
running properly in a VM with either qxl or cirrus drivers: KDE should
now work fine inside KVMs. For Xfce, we took a bunch of the
NTH-nominated fixes. So, I'm hoping this means we've already had quite a
lot of testing with the TCs, and the RCs should be pretty good.

Thanks everyone!

Hi again, everyone. We did an RC2 spin yesterday to fix a single bug:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=744463

so aside from that bug, all other RC1 testing is valid. RC2 is at:

http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/stage/16.RC2/

and the test results page is at:

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Test_Results:Fedora_16_Final_RC2_Desktop

There's also a silent re-spin of the RC2 lives going on because we
discovered they were built using the wrong livecd-tools, so the images
will be replaced over the next few hours. That change again fixes just a
single bug:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=748344

and is only relevant if you're booting a live image via EFI.
