QA:Testcase Basic Package installs

Release relevance

This Testcase applies the following versions of Rocky Linux: 8, 9

Associated release criterion

This test case is associated with the Release_Criteria#packages-and-module-installation release criterion. If you are doing release validation testing, a failure of this test case may be a breach of that release criterion.


The associated release criteria, Release_Criteria#packages-and-module-installation, for this test case is overly general and must be modified to specific enough to be testable.


Installing several packages should work without any issues.

Please also test these usecases (it's basically the fun of learning to install software, it's even good if it's done differently each other time):

  • httpd
  • httpd with php and ssl
  • nginx
  • nginx with php and ssl
  • mysql-server
  • mysql-server with secure setup
  • mariadb-server
  • postgresql-server
  • postgresql-server with secure setup
  • compiling packages with:
    • cmake
    • g++
  • ipa-server
  • ipa-server with dns


Obtain access to a suitable system where any of the tested packages can be installed without any issues.

How to test

  1. Install a list of packages or usecases

Expected Results

Installs work without any issues.
