Description Michal Nowak 2010-05-13 05:13:22 EDT
Description of problem:

This is how SOSreport is started by abrt when I attempted to report via TicketUploader:

sosreport --batch --only=anaconda --only=bootloader --only=devicemapper --only=filesys --only=hardware --only=kernel --only=libraries --only=memory --only=networking --only=nfsserver --only=pam --only=process --only=rpm -k rpm.rpmva=off --only=ssh --only=startup --only=yum

When this is run manually it results in e.g. /tmp/sosreport-dhcp-lab-222-20100513104505-a579.tar.xz (see the XZ suffix). However abrt creates file /tmp/TicketUploader-newticket-20100513081932.tar.gz with following content:

* abrt specific info regarding that crash, and
* sosreport.tar.bz2.

sosreport.tar.bz2 which is itself:

dhcp-lab-222 ~ # file ~newman/Desktop/sosreport.tar.bz2 
/home/newman/Desktop/sosreport.tar.bz2: xz compressed data

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create report via TicketUploader
2. inspect type of tar.bz2 file inside tar.gz one
Expected results:

File in *this case* should be named sosreport.tar.xz however one never knows the suffix prio starting sosreport because sosreport chooses compression app depending on what compression apps are present: xz -> bz2.
