abrt: installing abrt and generating coredump for tests

The Automatic Bug Reporting Tool, commonly abbreviated as ABRT, is a set of tools that is designed to help users detect and report application crashes. Its main purpose is to ease the process of reporting issues and finding solutions. In this context, the solution can be a Bugzilla ticket, a knowledge-base article, or a suggestion to update a package to a version containing a fix.

# dnf install abrt -y

# sleep 30 &

# killall -SIGSEGV sleep

# ls -la /var/tmp/abrt/
