QA:Testcase Basic Graphics Mode


The associated release criteria, Release_Criteria#basic-graphics-mode-behaviors, for this test case is overly general and must be modified to specific enough to be testable.

Associated release criterion

This test case is associated with the Release_Criteria#basic-graphics-mode-behaviors release criterion. If you are doing release validation testing, a failure of this test case may be a breach of that release criterion.


This test case will verify that release-blocking installers function as intended using the generic video driver option (“basic graphics mode”) on supported systems and classes of hardware.

Supported Systems and Hardware Classes






  1. Obtain access to supported system and hardware class to be installed.
  2. Prepare appropriate media for the selected ISO to be tested.

How to test

  1. Boot the system from the prepared optical, USB media or virtual device attachment.
  2. In the boot menu select the appropriate option to boot the installer.
  3. In the installer select the appropriate option to intall in basic graphics mode.
  4. Proceed with installation on the test system.
    Depending on installer choices this MAY destroy all the data on the test system.


If you choose to complete the installation of the test system any/all data on the system may be lost. Please do not install on a system whose contents you need to keep.

Expected Results

  1. Selection of basic graphics mode in the Anaconda installer is possible.
  2. Anaconda installer presents a usable graphical intallation environment.
  3. System under test can be installed normally.
  4. After reboot system boots into graphical environment.
  5. After login user is able to operate the graphical environment.
