Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 170229
Python-powered Configuration Utilities Should Have Backtrace on Exception Reporting to Fedora's Bugzilla Server
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:14 EST
Description of problem:
This bug has just been filed under this component, because I remember this
utility crashing considerably during system installations; but the concept
should apply to all of Fedora's Python-power utilities.
When a Python-powered Fedora configuration utility crashes, it just gives one
the option the debug or to examine a backtrace. It might be useful if, upon a
crash, the application could use some mechanism similar to GNOME's Bugbuddy
infrastructure to allow for bug reporting, including the backtrace and useful
variables, back to the Fedora project.
If this would help cut-down on the number of spurious problems encountered in
the configuration utilities, great; it is necessary for the project.
Opera had an oops.
