From Fedora Project Wiki


This test case tests the functionality of the ABRT feature.

How to test

  1. Check that the abrtd and abrt-applet processes are both running.
  2. Kill some running process: kill -SIGSEGV (pid). It must be a process that is part of a signed Fedora package.
  3. Kill at least two different running processes.
When using a live image
Please don't kill large applications (e.g. Firefox), because the coredumps and downloaded debuginfo packages take large amount of space and it could exhaust all your available memory.
Good candidates
If you don't have your favorite package to crash here are few examples:
  • bash
  • sleep
  • top

Expected Results

  1. The notification stating "We're sorry it looks like a problem occurred. If you'd like to help ..." should appear
  2. Clicking the "Report" button should open the ABRT GUI (no need to report)
