This test case tests the functionality of the ABRT feature using the Logger reporting plugin.

How to test

  1. Ensure you have the plugin installed with the command su -c 'yum install abrt-plugin-logger'
  2. Edit /etc/abrt/abrt_event.conf and be sure you have there e.g. EVENT=report_Logger abrt-action-print -o "${Log_File:-/var/log/abrt.log}"
  3. If changed the file, restart ABRT with the command su -c 'service abrtd restart'
  4. Confirm that the abrtd and abrt-applet processes are both running
  5. Kill a running process with the command kill -SIGSEGV (pid). It must be a process that is part of a signed Fedora package
  6. Click on the panel applet to start abrt-gui
  7. Select the entry matching the recently crashed application, then click on Open, select Logger plugin.
  8. Finish the wizard and save the report to predefined log file (usually /var/log/abrt.log).

Expected Results

  1. After you finish the steps in wizard at the last screen you should see "The report was stored to /var/log/abrt.log"
  2. Open the log file and see if your crash is in it.
