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

How to test

Please note that this test probably can't be done using live cd.
  1. Ensure you have the plugin installed with the following command:
    • su -c 'yum install abrt-addon-vmcore crash'
  2. Ensure that the system log watcher service is running - systemctl status abrt-vmcore.service
    • If you have to change anything, restart abrtd: su -c 'systemctl restart abrtd.service'
  3. TBD: how to make kernel crash?

Expected Results

  1. When rebooting after kernel panic ABRT should catch detect the new vmcore appearing in /var/crash, create a crash report and notify you via the notification area
