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

How to test

  1. Ensure you have the plugin installed with the command su -c yum install abrt-plugin-logger
  2. Edit /etc/abrt/abrt.conf and be sure the Logger plugin is enabled in the CCpp and Python sections. For example:
CCpp = Bugzilla, Logger
Python = Bugzilla, Logger
  1. Restart ABRT with the command su -c service abrt restart
  2. Confirm that the abrt and abrt-applet processes are both running
  3. Kill a running process with the command kill -SIGSEGV (pid). It must be a process that is part of a signed Fedora package
  4. Click on the panel applet to start abrt-gui
  5. Select the entry matching the recently crashed application, then click on Report, select Logger plugin.
  6. At the report window, click Send

Expected Results

  1. After you click Send, a notification window should report: "Logger: Report was stored into: /var/log/abrt-logger"
  2. The crash information should in fact be added to that file
