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

How to test

Ensure you have the plugin installed:

yum install abrt-plugin-logger

Edit /etc/abrt/abrt.conf and list the Logger plugin in EnabledPlugins, CCpp and Python lines (which will enable and activate it). For example:

EnabledPlugins = Logger, SQLite3, CCpp, Kerneloops, KerneloopsScanner, KerneloopsReporter, Bugzilla, Python #, Mailx
CCpp = Bugzilla, Logger
Python = Bugzilla, Logger

Make sure you have abrt-plugin-logger installed. Install this plugin if it's missing.

Restart ABRT:

# service abrt restart

And final steps are:

  1. Ensure that the abrt and abrt-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 abrt-gui
  4. Select the entry matching the recently crashed application, then click on Report
  5. At the report window, click Send

Expected Results

  1. After you click Send, a notification window should report, among other things: "Logger: Report was stored into: /var/log/abrt-logger"
