Description

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


How to test

  1. Edit /etc/abrt/abrt.conf to enable and activate the Mailx plugin. This is in fact the default, but check in case. 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
# selected DB plugin
Database = SQLite3
# reporters association
CCpp = Mailx
  1. Edit /etc/abrt/plugins/Mailx.conf and make sure the configuration is valid. The default configuration:
# Configuration to Email reporter plugin
# Parameters
Parameters =

# Your Email
EmailFrom = user@localhost

# Email To
EmailTo = root@localhost

# Warning! enabling this may cause sending a lot of MB via email
SendBinaryData = no

should work. Only change the EmailTo address to a public address that would require forwarding through a real SMTP server if you have the 'mailx' configuration set so that such mails are correctly handled.

Restart ABRT:
# service abrt restart
  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, select Forward
  5. At the report window, click Apply

Expected Results

  1. A mail reporting the crash should be sent to the email address specified in /etc/abrt/plugins/Mailx.conf. If you left this set to root@localhost, you should be able to see the mail in the file /var/spool/mail/root in a default Fedora setup.
