How to check if data is normally distributed

Hi all,

I want to run a f-test on two samples to see if their variances are independent. Wikipedia says that the f test is sensitive to non normality of sample (<>. How can I check if my samples are normally distributed or not.

I read some forums which said I can use kstest and lillietest. When can I use either? I get an answer h=0. Does that mean my data is normally distributed?

You cannot tell from only 2 samples whether they are normally distributed or not. If you have a larger sample set and you are only testing them in pairs, then you could use the larger sample set to test for a particular distribution.

For example: (simple q-q plot)
