Description Richard Marko 2011-10-17 16:03:34 UTC
Description of problem:
anaconda-tb-* is sometimes recognized as binary file, sometimes as a text file.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. crash anaconda
2. save report via logger

Actual results:
anaconda-tb-yCVSf0: Binary file, 853646 bytes
(anaconda-tb-* file is marked as binary file in GUI and logger output.)

Expected results:
$ file anaconda-tb-yCVSf0
anaconda-tb-yCVSf0: ASCII English text, with very long lines, with overstriking

Additional info:
On another occasion it was marked as text file but not embedded into logger output
- https://bugzilla.redhat.com/attachment.cgi?id=528395

Is this also a bug or is it intentional? Logger output without the contents of anaconda-tb-* doesn't contain enough information for the developer to be able fix the issue.

Fixed in git:

commit a4cb8e3edb0d91e437c55c0cca5a1ba3b59fdc15

    Split text size limit into one limit for bug databases and one for log/email

    Log/email limit is bumped to 1 mbyte.

    I'd say this fixes rhbz#746727. If this will not be enough, then
    maybe we'll need an option/envvar to control max size.
