Description Nicolas Mailhot 2010-08-11 08:33:21 UTC
Description of problem:

Abrt currently logs the version of the package that crashed. However, it does not log the versions of all the packages the crasher depended on (even though they are used via debuginfos to create backtraces, and the bug can actually be in one of the libs used).

On systems that sync with repositories whith a high churn (rawhide, pre-alpha/beta repositories/tags), or on systems that cherry-pick updates (Fedora systems manually updated from koji, RHEL systems used by conservative customers that filter heavily Red Hat-provided updates) it is far from trivial to deduce the exact dependency versions from the version of the crashing package. (Sometimes people even selectively downgrade components to help third-party software installation)

Abrt should collect this info when a crash is detected (it's just a rpm -q --whaprovides library-listed-in-backtrace) and add it to the collected info by default (not do a full sosreport).
