Description

This test case tests the functionality of the Crash Catcher feature using the Logger plugin.


How to test

  1. Edit /etc/crash-catcher/crash-catcher.conf to enable and activate the Logger plugin. A sample config is noted below
# Enable GPG check
EnableOpenGPG = no
# GPG keys
OpenGPGPublicKeys = /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora
# blacklisted packages
BlackList = bash, bind, apache2
# enabled plugins
EnabledPlugins = SQLite3, CCpp, Mailx, Logger
# selected DB plugin
Database = SQLite3
# reporters association
CCpp = Logger, Mailx
  1. Ensure that the crash-catcher and cc-applet processes are both running
  2. Kill a running process: kill -SIGSEGV (pid). It must be a process that is part of a signed Fedora package
  3. Click on the panel applet to start cc-gui
  4. Select the entry matching the recently crashed application, select Forward
  5. At the report window, click Apply

Expected Results

  1. A crash log should be reported by the Logger plugin into /var/log/crash-catcher-logger
