What does ‘testing’ means?¶
Testing means running an instance of freepto and checking if some well defined things happen or not.
These “things” should be clearly specified by developers.
How to test¶
There are two main ways to run freepto: inside a virtual machine, or booting it from a physical usb pendrive.
Usually virtual machine is easier; sometimes using a physical pendrive is needed. If so, it should be clearly specified by developers
If you want to test with virtualbox, you have to download the
.vdi image, NOT the
NOTE: this method is only supportetd on linux
.img and run
kvm -m 512 yourimage.img
Instead of “kvm”, different commands can be needed on different linux distributions
Sometimes persistence is needed to do a test, but most of the times it is not.
If it is NOT required, take the
.img and do
dd if=theimagetotest.img of=/dev/sdX
bash makefreepto -bri theimagetotest.img /dev/sdX
