Description Horst H. von Brand 2008-03-13 12:46:53 UTC
Description of problem:
When an Oops happens, a window opens explaining that this can give feedback, and
asks if I want to do so Always, Yes, No, Never (or something like that). I'd
expect that Always doesn't lead to the same question again, but it shows up each
time (yes, current Fedora kernels go oops each boot here ;-). After sending off
the report, it thanks for the report (OK!), but then asks if Always or No.
Giving this kind of options makes no sense here.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kerneloops-0.10-6.fc9.i386

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:

You need to edit /etc/kerneloops.conf to make the setting permanent.

Oops never mind... it is writing "alway" instead of "always" to ~/.kerneloops

Fixed in 0.10-10

Hasn't shown up again... where are the Oopses when you need them ;-)
