abrt-dump-journal-core doesn't process core correctly due to permissions
Last modified: 2015-11-28 15:22:26 EST
Description of problem:
I wanted to process coredump captured by coredumpctl by abrt. I used this:
$ abrt-dump-journal-core -v -D -e
Changing owner of the new problem to: 1000
Whether I run it using sudo or under root, it always changed owner to my current desktop user (not sure if it is OK or not). However, in journal it has printed this:
Oct 08 10:57:26 localhost.localdomain abrt-server: Problem directory '/var/spool/abrt/ccpp-2015-10-08-11:21:16.590472-5090' has wrong owner or group
ABRT then did not want to process those reports due to missing pkg_epoch and other files. I had to run this:
# /usr/libexec/abrt-handle-event -e post-create -- <DIR>
Failed to get journal fields: Cannot assign requested address
That fixed the issue and I could finally process and report the coredump by abrt.
Please fix the permission issues.
