Description Christian Stadelmann 2015-09-28 16:19:33 UTC
Description of problem:
On most crashes I see on a F22 machine I get this error message when reporting the crash:
Reporting disabled because the backtrace is unusable
But there are no errors in the log (or event_log file). Just content like this:

--- Running report_uReport ---
('report_uReport' completed successfully)

--- Running analyze_CCpp ---
Ok to upload core dump? (It may contain sensitive data). If your answer is 'No', a stack trace will be generated locally. (It may download a huge amount of data). 'NO'
Analyzing coredump 'coredump'
Alle Debuginfo-Dateien sind vorhanden
Generating backtrace
Backtrace is generated and saved, 17022 bytes

Searching for updates
No updates for this package found

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Very often on this machine. Maybe 60%…80% of all crashes.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Wait for crash to happen
2. When gnome-abrt notifies you, open gnome-abrt and press "Report"
3. Wait for report to finish

Actual results:
Reporting works fine until error message is displayed below the "show log" text area stating "Reporting disabled because the backtrace is unusable"

Expected results:
Report should work fine. If not it should tell me why.

Additional info:
If you need a copy of some of my problem directories please provide a PGP key ID (with an email address). I'll not upload all of them here.

Comment 1 Fedora End Of Life 2016-07-19 18:02:55 UTC
Fedora 22 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-07-19. Fedora 22 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.

Comment 2 Jakub Filak 2016-07-21 13:54:44 UTC
I believe the issue was caused by the transition from yum to dnf.
