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.

How to test

  1. Boot the installer by any available means (CD, DVD, boot.iso or PXE). Add a traceback keyword to the kernel boot line.
  2. After a few initial steps (language/keymap choice, network activation) you should be presented with a failure dialog. Select Debug
  3. Execute some commands in debug mode

Expected Results

  1. The installer presents a failure dialog and offers an option to save the failure report.
  2. Debug shell appears on tty1
  3. Commands are executed successfully in debug shell
