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 with the command su -c 'yum install abrt-plugin-mailx'
  2. Edit /etc/abrt/abrt.conf to activate the Mailx plugin. A sample config is noted below
...
CCpp = Mailx, Bugzilla, Logger
Python = Mailx, Bugzilla, Logger
...
  1. 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
Enabled = yes

# In abrt.conf, plugin takes one parameter: subject (in "" if you need to embed spaces).
# If it isn't specified, then a default subject is taken from this file
Subject = "[abrt] crash report"

# Your Email
EmailFrom = user@localhost

# Email To
EmailTo = root@localhost

# Warning! enabling this may cause sending a lot of MB via email
SendBinaryData = no
  1. Restart ABRT with the commandsu -c 'service abrt restart'
  2. Make sure the sendmail service is running with the command su -c 'service sendmail start' (or, if you use a different MTA, ensure it is running)
  3. Ensure that the abrt and abrt-applet processes are both running
  4. Kill a running process with the command kill -SIGSEGV (pid). It must be a process that is part of a signed Fedora package
  5. Click on the panel applet to start abrt-gui
  6. Select the entry matching the recently crashed application, click Report, choose Mailx reporter
  7. 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.
