Description

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


How to test

  1. Ensure you have the plugin installed:
    yum install abrt-plugin-mailx
  2. Edit /etc/abrt/abrt.conf to enable and activate the Mailx plugin. A sample config is noted below
    ...
    EnabledPlugins = Mailx, SQLite3, CCpp, Logger, Kerneloops, KerneloopsScanner, KerneloopsReporter, Bugzilla, Python
    ...
    CCpp = Mailx, Bugzilla, Logger
    Python = Mailx, Bugzilla, Logger
    ...
  3. Edit /etc/abrt/plugins/Mailx.conf and make sure the configuration is valid. The default configuration noted below 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.
    # Configuration to Email reporter plugin
    # Your Email
    EmailFrom = user@localhost
    # Email To
    EmailTo = root@localhost
    # Warning! enabling this may cause sending a lot of MB via email
    SendBinaryData = no
  4. Restart ABRT:
    # service abrt restart
  5. Make sure sendmail service is running:
    # service sendmail start
  6. Ensure that the abrt and abrt-applet processes are both running
  7. Kill a running process: kill -SIGSEGV (pid). It must be a process that is part of a signed Fedora package
  8. Click on the panel applet to start abrt-gui
  9. Select the entry matching the recently crashed application, click Report
  10. At the report window, click Send

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 or via command mail as a root.
