Ubuntu – How to best retest a bug in a newer or development release


I have reported a bug that occurs in Karmic on launchpad, and I have been asked to re-test it on lucid or maverick. How can I do this best?

Best Answer

For testing Maverick, testdrive is easiest. It'll automatically download the latest Maverick daily and run it in a Virtual Machine.

sudo apt-get install testdrive virtualbox-ose
