What to test?

Today's instalment of Fedora Test Day will focus on:

Who's available

The following cast of characters will be available for testing, workarounds, bug fixes, and general discussion ...

Prerequisite for Test Day

  • Rawhide or F10 fully updated (some tips below). Remember, Rawhide is an unsupported development branch: use an installation you don't mind getting broken
  • Selinux enabled. If you need to run in permissive mode please file a bug against selinux
no animals will be hurt during testing

How to test?

Update your machine to latest Rawhide or F10

See the instructions on the Rawhide page on the various ways in which you can install or update to Rawhide.


  1. Create a yum repo for crash-handler. For example, to create a repo called /etc/yum.repos.d/crash-handler.repo, type:
# cat <<EOF>>/etc/yum.repos.d/crash-handler.repo
  1. Install the crash-catcher packages:
    # yum install crash-catcher*
  2. Restart the computer to launch the daemon and load the necessary dbus configuration files
  3. check if the daemon is really running, if not for some reason, run crash-catcher
  4. run cc-applet (as an ordinary user)


Follow the test case.


If you find any bug (i.e. the test case does not complete as expected, or you encounter some buggy behaviour while carrying it out), then file a ticket via the crash-catcher Trac system. Design discussion can also take place on the crash-catcher mailing list.

Please record what applications you test with crash-catcher and their results in the table below.
