This test case tests the functionality of ABRT Knowledgebase


At the moment there are knowledgebase entries for the following software:

  • NVIDIA graphics driver
  • Adobe Flash Player
  • ATI Catalyst graphics driver
  • VLC Media Player
  • Google Chrome Web Browser
  • Chromium Web Browser
  • Skype
  • locally built software (in /home/ or /usr/local/)
  • Broadcom-STA Driver
  • VirtualBox

You need to enable rpmfusion first, to be able to install the listed software: rpmfusion free for F19 In case of problems with rpmfusion, refer the configuration page

You need to operate on problems with these in order to test the feature.

How to test

  1. Make some of the software mentioned above crash, e.g.
    killall -11 vlc
    killall -11 chrome
  2. Try standard reporting process

Expected Results
