Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 849667
Bugreporting from anaconda doesn't work as expected
Last modified: 2012-08-27 21:57:35 EDT
Description of problem:
Bug reporting of Anaconda's unhandled exceptions doesn't work as expected. Reporting bug fails if there is some empty item in the bug info overview (bug in libreport) and the attached anaconda-tb file does not contain the anaconda object dump because of the exception appearing during the dump (python-meh bug).
I am proposing this as a F18Alpha blocker according to this criteria:
>"The installer must be able to report failures to Bugzilla and local disk, with appropriate information included."
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. use one of the known cases when anaconda raises unhandled exception
2. try to report bug with/without empty items
Issues as described above.
new libreport build libreport-2.0.12-5.fc18 already available in koji
new python-meh scratch build (patches waiting for a review) available at:
python-meh-0.15-1.fc18 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 18.
bodhi page for libreport
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora 18 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing python-meh-0.15-1.fc18'
as soon as you are able to.

Discussed at 2012-08-20 QA meeting, acting as a blocker review meeting: http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-meeting/2012-08-20/fedora-qa.2012-08-20-15.00.html . Accepted as a blocker per criterion "The installer must be able to report failures to Bugzilla and local disk, with appropriate information included" (this bug clearly affects the 'appropriate information' part at least).
python-meh-0.15-1.fc18 has been pushed to the Fedora 18 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
