This test case tests the functionality of the ABRT feature using the Mailx plugin.

How to test

  1. Ensure you have the plugin installed with the command su -c 'dnf install libreport-plugin-mailx'
  2. Ensure you have sendmail installed with the command su -c 'dnf install sendmail'
  3. Ensure that the abrtd and abrt-applet processes are both running
  4. Turn on the mailx workflow
    sudo sed -i 's/# EVENT/EVENT/' /etc/libreport/workflows.d/report_mailx.conf
  5. Kill some running process: kill -SIGSEGV (pid) or run will_segfault. It must be a process that is part of a signed Fedora package
  6. Start gnome-abrt (either from cmdline or from application menu)
  7. Select the entry matching the recently crashed application, then choose Report
  8. At reporting step, choose Send the problem data via email as a reporting event
  9. Update Subject, Sender and Recepient
  10. Proceed to reporting using "Forward"/"Apply" buttons
  11. If reporting is unsuccessful, please include the reporting log in your abrt bug report. Reporting log can be cut and pasted from the GUI report window, or retrieved from event_log file in problem data directory (e.g. /var/tmp/abrt/ccpp-2011-03-04-15:46:26-22496/event_log)

Expected Results

  1. Check the the email if the message from ABRT has arrived (might take a few minutes).
