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' as well as Package-x-generic-16.pngmailx package.
  2. Kill a running process with the command kill -SIGSEGV (pid). It must be a process that is part of a Fedora package. Alternatively you can use an existing crash you may have from previous testing
  3. Click on the panel applet to start abrt-gui
  4. Select the entry matching the recently crashed application, click Open, choose Mailx reporter
  5. Finish the reporting

Expected Results

  1. An email reporting the crash should be sent to root@localhost unless specified otherwise.
  2. In terminal, make sure echo $USER says you are root and then run command mail -- you should see new mail starting "[abrt] ..."
