  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. Start gnome-abrt (either from cmdline or from application menu).
  6. Select the entry matching the recently crashed application, then choose Analyze.
  7. At reporting step, choose Mailx as a reporting event
  8. Use Preferences button in the same window to configure the plugin, set your email as the recipient.
  9. Proceed to reporting using "Forward"/"Apply" buttons.
