QA:Testcase ABRT CLI
This test case tests the functionality of the ABRT feature.
How to test
- We will check that the abrt-cli works and provides meaningful information
- After running previous ABRT test cases you probably have a bunch of crash reports in cache. If not do some crashing:
kill -SIGSEGV (pid)
- Mind abrtd daemon is running
- First investigate them via abrt-gui — which packages crashed, when, version, etc.
abrt-cli --get-list-fullin terminal to show all crashes.
abrt-cli --get-listto show unreported crashes.
abrt-cli --report <uuid>to report the crash. You can also refer to a crash using its ordinal number, prefixed by the at sign. Enter
abrt-cli --report @0to report the first crash from the list,
abrt-cli --report @1to report the second one et cetera.
ABRT analyzes the crash and creates a report about it. This might take a while. When the report is ready, abrt-cli opens text editor with the content of the report. You can see what is being reported, and you can fill in instructions on how to reproduce the crash and other comments.
When you are done with the report, save your changes and close the editor. You will be asked if you want to report using some reporter plugin. Respond Y to report or N to skip reporting.
When reporting via Bugzilla plugin, abrt-cli should ask for login and password when those are not set in /etc/abrt/plugins/Bugzilla.conf or ~/.abrt/Bugzilla.conf
abrt-cli --report-always <uuid-or-@x>to report the crash without confirming, using all reporters associated with the crash
abrt-cli --delete <uuid-or-@x>to delete item with chosen UUID or ordinal number
- Option --get-list-full shows all crashes
- Option --get-list shows all not-yet-reported crashes
- Option --report shows crash report and asks for confirmation before sending it
- Option --report-always sends crash report
- Option --delete deletes crash
