This test case tests the functionality of the ABRT kerneloops feature.

How to test

This test abuses syslog a bit - don't forget to restart it at the end of the test case.
  1. Ensure you have the plugin installed with the following command:
    • su -c 'yum install abrt-addon-kerneloops'
  2. Ensure that the system log watcher service is running - systemctl status abrt-oops.service
  3. Download the following file:
  4. Make sure /etc/libreport/events.d/koops_event.conf contains
    • EVENT=post-create analyzer=Kerneloops abrt-action-analyze-oops
    • EVENT=report_Kerneloops analyzer=Kerneloops reporter-kerneloops
    • If you have to change anything, restart abrtd: su -c 'systemctl restart abrtd.service'
  5. Append oops1.test to /var/log/messages with the following command:
    • su -c 'cat oops1.test >> /var/log/messages'
  6. Observe whether a crash notification appears

Expected Results

  1. ABRT should catch kernel oops appearing in /var/log/messages, create a crash report and notify you via the notification area

Now restart rsyslog service so writing to /var/log/messages works correctly again. Use the following command to restart the service: su -c 'systemctl restart rsyslog.service'.
