This test case checks whether ABRT blacklisting of certain packages works correctly.

How to test

  1. Edit the config file /etc/abrt/abrt.conf and find the lines:
    # Blacklisted packages
    BlackList = nspluginwrapper,valgrind,strace,avant-window-navigator
  2. Add a package whose application you can conveniently crash to the list or crash one from the current list
  3. If changed anything, restart ABRT with the command su -c 'service abrtd restart'
  4. Run - e.g. run strace sleep 3m - and then kill the application from the newly blacklisted package with the command kill -SIGSEGV $(strace_pid)

Expected Results

  1. ABRT should ignore the crash of the blacklisted application
  2. Look to /var/log/messages for 'abrt[6443]: saved core dump of pid 6428 (/usr/bin/strace)' and 'Corrupted or bad dump /var/spool/abrt/ccpp-... (res:2), deleting'
