Description

Check that the abrt handles Python exceptions.


How to test

  1. First, confirm in /etc/abrt/abrt.conf that the Python addon is enabled. For example,
    EnabledPlugins = Python
  2. Next, ensure that /etc/abrt/abrt.conf has at least one reporter defined for the Python addon. For example,
    Python = Logger, Mailx
  3. Restart service
    service abrtd restart
  4. Find a python .py file in system originally installed via RPM. For this test, we will choose /usr/share/doc/smolt-1.?/lite2my.py which is provided by the Package-x-generic-16.pngsmolt package. First, save a back-up of the file:
    cp /usr/share/doc/smolt-1.?/lite2my.py /tmp/
  5. Now, edit the file /usr/share/doc/smolt-1.?/lite2my.py to contain some invalid Python code. For example,
    #!/usr/bin/python
    
    "11" + 11
  6. Next, execute the modified file using python. For example, in terminal type:
    python /usr/share/doc/smolt-1.?/lite2my.py
  7. Revert the modified python file
    cp /tmp/lite2my.py /usr/share/doc/smolt-1.?/lite2my.py

Expected Results

  1. Python traceback should be generated
  2. ABRT catches it, check the report via abrt-gui whether the trace in report window is the same as in terminal
