This test case is intended to introduce a failure, and validate Anaconda is able to properly handle the failure and report the issue to bugzilla while running in Text mode. A valid bugzilla username and password are required for this test, please refer to BugsAndFeatureRequests.
Download and prepare any Fedora installation medium.
How to test
- If you're using a non-Live installation medium, boot the installer and add
inst.textto the boot options; otherwise for Live media you have to start the installer manually from terminal
- If you know how to make Anaconda crash, you can do so. Otherwise use Anaconda's fake exception handling trigger - switch to a different terminal and run the following command:
kill -USR1 `cat /var/run/anaconda.pid`Switch back to the installer, an error prompt should be displayed after a few seconds (you might need to hit refresh in a text mode).
- Check that a file with all the crash details has been created in
- Report the exception to Bugzilla using the error prompt.
- If you used the fake exception handling trigger, go to Bugzilla and close the newly reported bug as NOTABUG.
- The installer presents a failure prompt and allows you to report it to Bugzilla.
- Exception traceback is displayed.
- Crash details are saved into
- After reporting to Bugzilla, depending on the traceback you are either informed that a new bug was created, or that an existing bug was found that matches this failure. Either way, a bug number is provided.
- Details of the failure are attached to the bug report.
