Re: [orca-list] Orca ff3 testing platform

Hi Chris:

We develop primarily on Solaris Express x86 and Ubuntu Feisty, and we regularly grab the FF3 nightly builds.

Hope this helps,

Many of the problems cited in messages on this list seem to relate back to machines running different variants of linux and I suppose solaris. So during this period of ff3 testing would it be helpful for users and developers to decide on a common platform? Once the testing phase were reasonably stable on the given platform, testing could be expanded to alternative distros.

This is obviously not a complete solution because it does not take into account the variation in hardware, but it would reduce the vagueries introduced by software differences. lorenzo's experience is a perfect example of what I am talking about. He thought that upgrading to Feisty was a good thing because he would receive the advantages the 2.18 gnome packages. But the ff3 developers are apparently testing on some other software platform. I don't want to open up the "which is the best distro" debate, but I would like to see a particular one endorsed for ff3 and orca testing. If making such a policy statement would place the orca team in an uncomfortable position, we could at least have some informal feedback on this list from testers' experiences using a variety of distros.
