What I hope to do is better QA testing for next release (OM Lx 3.02 afaik) so we don’t get caught with a bunch of “this doesn’t work” stuff 5 days before release date. This testing is on hardware on 2 different computers a desktop (self assembled) and an ASUS X550C notebook. Used for this .iso # 946 (latest at the moment).
Some of the stuff I’m going to mention needs to have bug reports filed. I really could use help checking everything I’ve found. Obviously other people will find other issues I missed, can’t see, or am to dumb to realize, if so report them in this thread and if warranted file a bug report (and note bug URL here). If anyone can help solve any issues, well that would be just wonderful.
This report is meant to be in addition to existing open bug reports of which there are 102 open bugs against Lx 3 at the moment (April 22, 2017). See more here.
My procedure to follow this. Also go through Application Launcher (Kickoff in my case I think) and see that everything at least opens and in a lot of cases do more to see that basic things work. Then do spot checking in LXQT and check to see that it works overall. I haven’t checked every thing under “CLI Core Applications” thinking developers/power users will catch any of that.
Samba - no windows on this computer - so I don’t test this - there is a bug:
samba 4.3.8 - this security update borks a lot of stuff In Progress
Skrooge - crashes, doesn’t even start - this is in application menu so should work right? This needs a bug report. - Fixed by crisb 4/26.
Grub2 - On system with 3 ext4 OS’s I install from iso # 946 with f2fs and other systems are not recognized by os-prober even after updating system - April 26: This started working correctly again on my computer so is no longer an issue here…
Drakconf - anything I use works - that’s rpmdrake, drakrpm-edit-media, and rarely drakdisk don’t use any of the rest - KDE Partition Manager is fine so I don’t need drakdisk actually
Auto update - does this mean updating from icon in menu panel with Discover - that works except for testing repos
Discover - Where are applications? - I don’t care for Discover and will be reluctant to file a bug report on this, perhaps someone else will do so
Plasma Desktop - some flashing screens and dialog windows - but no segfault error messages - It’s like some things maybe work to fast for graphic hardware or software?
Lxqt Desktop - OK - But sometimes hangs and won’t logout and if that happens an attempt to login to Plasma fails - this looks to be a pain in the tucus to document - need more testing, input from other users before bug report
KDE config apps - SystemSettings and anything I tried worked
OM-Welcome will not start from Application Menu - In Progress
k3b - Missing whatever provides ‘cdrskin’ which it now uses instead of ‘cdrecord’ ie. missing dependency - this needs bug report if there isn’t one - Fixed by crisb 4/26.
KMail - I’m having trouble with gmail account authentication -
cyrus-sasl-2.1.27 breaks kmail smtp authentication
This is by no means meant to be an exhaustive list and some other users will have other issues to report. Again if needed file a bug report.
