What to test?

Today's instalment of Fedora Test Day will focus on Automated Bug Reporting Tool (ABRT) and 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 - Richard Marko (rmarko), Michal Nowak (mnowak)


Prerequisite for Test Day

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. Or you can use a live image:

Live image

Optionally, you may download a non-destructive Fedora 16 live image for your architecture. Tips on using a live image are available at FedoraLiveCD.

  • abrt-addon-ccpp
  • abrt-addon-python
  • abrt-addon-kerneloops
  • libreport
  • libreport-cli
  • libreport-gtk
  • libreport-newt
  • libreport-python
  • libreport-plugin-mailx
  • libreport-plugin-logger
  • libreport-plugin-bugzilla
  • libreport-plugin-kerneloops
  • libreport-plugin-reportuploader

Use following command to install/udpate all of them:

 yum -y install 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

Testing

Follow each of these test cases:

  1. QA:Testcase_ABRT - default crash report
  2. QA:Testcase_ABRT_Logger - Logger plugin
  3. QA:Testcase_ABRT_Bugzilla - Bugzilla plugin
  4. QA:Testcase_ABRT_Mailx - Mailx plugin
  5. QA:TestCase ABRT BlackList - package blacklist
  6. QA:Testcase ABRT GPG check - reporting crashes of signed packages only
  7. QA:TestCase ABRT GPG Keys - additional keys for signing packages
  8. QA:Testcase ABRT Actions and Reporters - testing of action/reporting plugins
  9. QA:Testcase ABRT Cron - periodical plugins using Cron
  10. QA:Testcase ABRT Plugins - configuring plugins
  11. QA:Testcase ABRT CLI - CLI interface
  12. QA:Testcase ABRT kernel - kernel oops
  13. QA:Testcase ABRT python - python tracebacks
Important.png
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.
Note.png
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 result template to enter your result, as shown in the example result line.
