Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 746727
/tmp/anaconda-tb-* is not handled properly
Last modified: 2016-01-31 21:21:56 EST
Description of problem:
anaconda-tb-* is sometimes recognized as binary file, sometimes as a text file.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. crash anaconda
2. save report via logger
anaconda-tb-yCVSf0: Binary file, 853646 bytes
(anaconda-tb-* file is marked as binary file in GUI and logger output.)
$ file anaconda-tb-yCVSf0
anaconda-tb-yCVSf0: ASCII English text, with very long lines, with overstriking
On another occasion it was marked as text file but not embedded into logger output
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:

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.
