QA:Testcase ABRT Mailx plugin
This test case tests the functionality of the ABRT feature using the Mailx plugin.
How to test
- Ensure you have the plugin installed with the command
su -c 'yum install abrt-plugin-mailx'
/etc/abrt/abrt.confto activate the Mailx plugin. A sample config is noted below"
- CCpp = Mailx, Bugzilla, Logger
- Python = Mailx, Bugzilla, Logger
/etc/abrt/plugins/Mailx.confand 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
- Restart ABRT with the command
su -c 'service abrt restart'
- 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)
- Ensure that the abrt and abrt-applet processes are both running
- Kill a running process with the command
kill -SIGSEGV (pid). It must be a process that is part of a signed Fedora package
- Click on the panel applet to start abrt-gui
- Select the entry matching the recently crashed application, click Report, choose Mailx reporter
- At the report window, click Send
- 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/rootin a default Fedora setup or via command mail as a root.
