How does someone test a build ISO?

Post by cra1g321 »

Hey i was wanting to know how people test a build of a operating system.
Do they just use it like they would with a normal OS,
Do they run all programs within the OS,
Do they have certain tasks to try and complete on the test OS like opening a certain filetype with certain software successfully.

Just a bit curious as i noticed the KDE version is getting tested
PC - Gigabyte 970A-DS3 AMD 970 , AMD Bulldozer FX-4 4170, Kingston HyperX Blu 4GB 1600MHz C9, Zotac Geforce 8800GT AMP Edition, OS's = Linux / WIN7

I believe Clem has a list of tests he performs on every ISO. I'm guessing he same is said for explorer.
I'm guessing the tests will be playing media, web browsing, all the mint tools, mint4win etc.
AMD Phenom 9550 Quad-Core Processor | ATI Radeon X1200 | Arch Linux | Gnome
2.66 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo | NVIDIA GeForce 9400 | Mac OS X 10.6.4 |
If your question is answered edit your topic title and add [SOLVED] to the beginning of it.

Yeah, there is a list of specific tests that are run and testing can go beyond these tests as well.
