Description

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


How to test

  1. Install the Package-x-generic-16.pngsendmail package: su -c 'yum install sendmail'. If you prefer to use a different MTA, ensure it is configured to allow local mail delivery
  2. Ensure you have the plugin installed with the command su -c 'yum install abrt-plugin-mailx' as well as Package-x-generic-16.pngmailx package.
  3. !!!FIXME!!! Open /etc/abrt/abrt_event.conf to see if there's similar line: !!!
  4. Open /etc/abrt/plugins/Mailx.conf and make sure the configuration is valid:
    Enabled = yes
    EmailFrom = user@localhost
    EmailTo = root@localhost
    SendBinaryData = no
  5. Restart ABRT with the commandsu -c 'systemctl restart abrtd.service'
  6. 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)
  7. Ensure that the abrtd and abrt-applet processes are both running
  8. Kill a running process with the command kill -SIGSEGV (pid). It must be a process that is part of a signed Fedora package. Alternatively you can use an existing crash you may have from previous testing
  9. Click on the panel applet to start abrt-gui
  10. Select the entry matching the recently crashed application, click Open, choose Mailx reporter
  11. Finish the reporting

Expected Results

  1. An email 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 by running the command mail as a root
