Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1016714
After giving abrt notification my root password, only option it gives is 'ignore forever'
Last modified: 2016-11-30 19:45:26 EST
I hit a qemu crasher via libvirt. I'm triggering this with virt-manager and polkit auth as root. I get a little notification that qemu crashed, 'ignore' or 'report'. I hit 'report'
Since qemu is launched as the qemu:qemu user and not my regular user, abrt asks for the root password to view other users traces. I enter the root password. Couple seconds go by, and a new notification appears for the same crash.
The problem is the only option it gives me is 'ignore forever'. I want to 'report' it. I can work around it by launching gnome-abrt but understandably I don't want to do that manually.
I saw this on F19 as well with qemu/libvirt crashes, but I can reproduce at will on f20.
Let me know if I can provide any more info
Thank you for the report. I guess your desktop environment is GNOME and this strange behaviour is caused by Shortened reporting. Please open ABRT GUI -> Application menu -> ABRT Configuration and check state of a switch for Shortened reporting option.
Shortened reporting is 'on'
Shortened reporting is enabled by default in GNOME. We had an requirement to make reporting really simple, therefore GNOME users reports to ABRT server only . Disable Shortened reporting and Report button will report a bug to Bugzilla next time.
Closing as DUPLICATE because this issues has already been reported, but please feel free to report any further bugs you find.
