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 libreport-plugin-mailx'
  2. Ensure that the abrtd and abrt-applet processes are both running
  3. Kill a running process with the command kill -SIGSEGV (pid). It must be a process that is part of a signed Fedora package
  4. Click on the pop-up notification to start abrt-gui
  5. Select the entry matching the recently crashed application, click Open
  6. At reporting step, choose Mailx as a reporting event
  7. Use "Preferences" button in the same window to configure the plugin, set root as the recipient
  8. Proceed to reporting using "Forward"/"Apply" buttons
  9. If reporting is unsuccessful, please include the reporting log in your abrt bug report. Reporting log can be cut and pasted from the GUI report window, or retrieved from event_log file in problem data directory (e.g. /var/spool/abrt/ccpp-2011-03-04-15:46:26-22496/event_log).

Expected Results

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