This test case ensures the proper installation and basic functionality of the
dbus interprocess communication mechanism.
- Install the
sudo dnf install dbus dbus-devel.
- Ensure the D-Bus daemon is running:
systemctl status dbus.
- Prepare a basic script or program to test the D-Bus functionalities.
How to test
- List all the D-Bus services currently running using:
dbus-send --print-reply --dest=org.freedesktop.DBus /org/freedesktop/DBus org.freedesktop.DBus.ListNames.
- Use the
dbus-monitortool to monitor D-Bus messages on the system bus or session bus.
- The list command should display all active D-Bus services.
dbus-monitorshould show live D-Bus messages as they occur.
- No errors or crashes should occur during the process.
For advanced testing:
- Test sending and receiving custom messages using D-Bus.
- Verify the proper functioning of D-Bus activation where services are started on-demand.
- Examine the behavior of D-Bus under high load or with large message payloads.
