Description Máirín Duffy 2008-10-31 17:25:46 UTC
Description of problem:

In previous versions of kerneloops I noticed that it used to provide you a little pop-up window with a URL to the kerneloops.org URL for your kernel issue report. I'm running rawhide updated as of the evening of Oct 30, and I no longer see the URL to the kerneloops.org issue # in the popup. It only has a link to the front of kerneloops.org (a lot less useful.)

Ideally, I would actually like to see the URL for the report listed in /var/log/messages or somewhere more permanent than the little popup. The problem with the popup is that once it's gone, there does not appear to be any way to get it back.

The reason I am interested in the report, however valid or invalid it may be, is because I'm curious to know what caused the oops, because it may be something I can avoid doing vs. booting into an older kernel that may not have some of the modules I need (which is what I'm doing now.)

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


How reproducible:

I've seen it pop up twice today without the link to the exact report. Here is what it says in /var/log/messages:

Oct 31 12:43:42 Aiko kerneloops: Submitted 15 kernel oopses to www.kerneloops.org
Oct 31 12:56:51 Aiko kerneloops: Submitted 1 kernel oopses to www.kerneloops.org
