ABRT Notifications On the Console Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5 provides a new package, abrt-console-notification. With this package installed, users can see warnings on the console if a new problem has been detected by Automatic Bug Reporting Tool (ABRT) since the last login. This was previously not possible and is useful especially for users who do not use the graphical environment, for example, on headless systems. These users could otherwise miss problems detected by ABRT.

Description Jiri Moskovcak 2013-05-09 04:04:01 EDT
Description of problem:
There is not many reports coming from RHEL6 which is caused by user not knowing about ABRT. In it's default configuration ABRT sends notifications about detected problems to root@localhost but as it seems not many users pay attention to that. The console notification is just another means how to notify user about problems when he doesn't run any desktop.

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:
- no notification about detected problems when user logs into the headless system

Expected results:
- visible notification if some problems were detected
