This test case tests the functionality of the ABRT kerneloops feature.

How to test

  1. Ensure you have will-crash-0.5 installed
    • su -c 'yum install will-crash-0.5'
  2. Ensure you have the plugin installed with the following command:
    • su -c 'yum install abrt-addon-kerneloops'
  3. Ensure you have kernel-devel package installed
    • su -c 'yum install kernel-devel-uname -r'
  4. Ensure that the system log watcher service is running - systemctl status abrt-oops.service
  5. Make sure /etc/libreport/events.d/koops_event.conf contains
EVENT=post-create analyzer=Kerneloops
        # >> instead of > is due to
        abrt-action-analyze-oops &&
        dmesg >>dmesg &&
  1. Run the following command:
    • su -c 'will_oops'
  2. Observe whether a crash notification appears
