If this page is more than a month old when you arrive here, please check the [[QA/Test_Days|current schedule]] and see if a similar but more recent Test Day is planned or has already happened.}}
=== What to test? ===
Today's instalment of Fedora Test Day will focus on '''Automated Bug Reporting Tool ([[Features/ABRT|ABRT]])''' and '''Unified Problem Reporting UI ([[Features/Unified Problem Reporting UI|libreport]])'''.
=== Who's available ===
The following cast of characters will be available testing, workarounds, bug fixes, and general discussion ...
* Development - Jiří Moskovčák (jmoskovc), Nikola Pajkovsky (npajkovs), Denys Vlasenko (dvlasenk), Karel Klíč (kklic), Michal Toman (mtoman)
* Quality Assurance - [[User:Rmarko|Richard Marko]] (rmarko), [[User:mnowak|Michal Nowak]] (mnowak)
=== Prerequisite for Test Day ===
* Physical machine or a virtual machine
* An updated [ Fedora 16 pre-release]
=== How to test? ===
==== '''Update your machine''' ====
If you're running Fedora 16, make sure you have all the current updates for it installed, using the update manager.
==== '''Live image''' ====
You may download a non-destructive Fedora 16 live image for your architecture. Tips on using a live image are available at [[FedoraLiveCD]].
Download the [ nightly Fedora 16 build] for your architecture (choose the desktop spin).
==== '''Get latest abrt/libreport packages''' ====
Use the following command to install/udpate all of them:
  yum -y install --enablerepo=updates-testing abrt abrt-addon-ccpp abrt-addon-kerneloops abrt-addon-python abrt-desktop abrt-gui abrt-libs abrt-cli libreport libreport-cli libreport-gtk libreport-newt libreport-python libreport-plugin-mailx libreport-plugin-logger libreport-plugin-bugzilla libreport-plugin-kerneloops libreport-plugin-reportuploader
Make sure '''abrtd''' and '''abrt-ccpp''' services are running:
# service abrtd start
Starting abrtd (via systemctl):                            [  OK  ]
# service abrt-ccpp start
Starting abrt-ccpp (via systemctl):                        [  OK  ]
* File {{filename|/proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern}} contains following output:
# cat /proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern
|/usr/libexec/abrt-hook-ccpp /var/spool/abrt %s %c %p %u %g %t %h %e 636f726500
==== Testing ====
Follow each of these test cases:
# [[QA:Testcase_ABRT]] - default crash report
# [[QA:Testcase_ABRT_Logger]] - Logger plugin
# [[QA:Testcase_ABRT_Bugzilla]] - Bugzilla plugin
# [[QA:Testcase_ABRT_Mailx]] - Mailx plugin
# [[QA:TestCase ABRT BlackList]] - package blacklist
# [[QA:Testcase ABRT GPG check]] - reporting crashes of signed packages only
# [[QA:TestCase ABRT GPG Keys]] - additional keys for signing packages
# [[QA:Testcase ABRT Actions and Reporters]] - testing of action/reporting plugins
# [[QA:Testcase ABRT Cron]] - periodical plugins using Cron
# [[QA:Testcase ABRT Plugins]] - configuring plugins
# [[QA:Testcase ABRT CLI]] - CLI interface
# [[QA:Testcase ABRT kernel]] - kernel oops
# [[QA:Testcase ABRT python]] - python tracebacks
{{admon/important|Close all fake bugs you create!|During certain test cases you will be required to simulate application crashes and report these crashes into Bugzilla. It is '''very important''' that after every such fake report you open the link provided by ABRT and '''close that bug''' as NOTABUG with comment like ''"ABRT testing bug"''. Otherwise you would overload package developers with fake bug reports. Thank you.}}
{{admon/note|Report SELinux denials against ABRT|If you encounter some SELinux (AVC) denials during testing, please report them against the '''abrt''' package, not '''selinux''' package. Thanks.}}
=== Test Results ===
If you have problems with any of the tests, report a bug to [ Bugzilla] usually for the component [ abrt], or [ libreport] for bugs in the libreport library. If you are unsure about exactly how to file the report or what other information to include, just ask on IRC and we will help you. Once you have completed the tests, add your results to the Results table below, following the example results from the first line as a template. The first column should be your name with a link to your User page in the Wiki if you have one. For each test case, use the [[Template:result|result template]] to enter your result, as shown in the example result line.
