Description Adam Williamson 2014-08-08 07:58:08 UTC
I just hit a crash in anaconda, went to report it, and ran into https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=811967 - the consequence being that the network is unavailable. Report submission fails with an error "--- Running report_Bugzilla ---
fatal: libcurl failed to execute the HTTP POST transaction, explaining:  Could not resolve host: bugzilla.redhat.com
('report_Bugzilla' exited with 1)" . Obviously it failed due to the lack of network, but there doesn't seem to be a way to retry after fixing the network issue.

I can retry by leaving the submission process entirely and restarting - anaconda leaves the 'i have crashed, submit a report?' dialog up - but I have to go through the whole process again, including entering the description and my Bugzilla credentials, which is obviously inefficient.

Hi Adam, thank you for the report! I have a good news, I fixed this annoying lack of user friendliness few days ago in upstream git via commit: https://github.com/abrt/libreport/commit/8db880a2c6add7137aac9f8562ae73aef3e1e436

I will update the packages ASAP!
