QA:Testcase ABRT kernel addon
This test case tests the functionality of the ABRT feature.
How to test
- We will check that the dumpoops works and provides correct amount of crashes detected.
- Download files:
- Test that stand-alone detector tool is working properly:
$ dumpoops -s examples_oops1.test dumpoops: found oopses: 1 Version: 220.127.116.11-159.fc10.i686 #1 BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 00000000 ...
- And now test if ABRT's KernelOopsScanner is working
- Edit /etc/abrt/abrt.conf so it says:
10 = KerneloopsScannerThis makes abrtd scan /var/log/messages more often, every 10 secs. Then restart abrtd:
$ service abrtd restart
- cat the downloaded file to /var/log/messages e.g.:
cat examples_oops1.test >> /var/log/messages
- you'll need root privs for this
- Wait for abrt-applet (make sure it's running) to show the notification about the detected kerneloops
- Open the abrt-gui and check if you can see the oops
- After running dumpoops: oops1.test and oops3.test should contain one and three oopses respectively. not_oopsN.test should not be detected as containing oops.
- After finishing the second part: oopses detected and visible in abrt-gui
