I had a major foul-up a couple of days ago, and I now have thousands of bug reports in the abrt applet. I'm trying to delete them individually, but it's taking forever. Is there a way to mass delete these reports to clean things up? I looked at abrt-cli and it has a --delete command, but only does them one at a time, too.
I know BIND has rndc. Does windows have a utility that allows remote editing of records on MS DNS server FROM LINUX? I've looked at wbem a little but, have not confirmed if it allows adding/editing DNS records.
I have some big sqlite3 databases in ~/.mozilla/firefox/profilename Notably places.sqlite (12 MB) and urlclassifier3.sqlite (33 MB). Is it possible to truncate them and wipe out the oldest records in them? Of course I could just wipe them completely, but that's not my goal - I just want to minimize the size of those files while keeping the newest records.
when ever i try to install updates i get shown an error & the updates stop the error i get says "librpmio.so.0 is needed by package abrt-1.0.3-1.fc12.i686 (updates) librpm.so.0 is needed by package abrt-1.0.3-1.fc12.i686 (updates)"
So last night suddenly my computer started running really slow. Like it would take a couple of minutes for a window to open. I tried to start System Monitor to see what was going on, but couldn't get it to launch. At first I thought something had grabbed the CPU, but eventually I discovered that something was writing a massive amount to the hard disk. The intensive disk activity continued for about 20 minutes as I watched nervously. Just as the disk activity suddenly stopped ABRT popped up a message that disappeared to fast to read fully, but it said something about a file that was too large.
This morning I discovered that about 9 GB of my hard disk had been used up. Using "find -size +1G" I found an 8.6 GB file in /var/spool/abrt /ccpp-1291706342-2244/ called "coredump."I don't know what a coredump is or how to look inside the file to see what might have caused its creation. But I do know that ABRT has not said a word about the incident.
Whenever I log into Fedora, an icon (a triangle with an exclamation mark) pops up in the main panel . When I move the mouse over it, the following is displayed. ABRT service not running. I restarted the service from the service configuration window but there was no difference. How do I configure it to run alway
First of all, I was unsure whether this should go in General Support or in Installation. The problem is occurring on my first boot of a freshly installed F12 system, but the immediate problem seems to be more concerned with Automatic Bug Reporting Tool and/or Bugzilla plugin.
That more immediate problem is: when I run the tool to report a crash, it complains that the Bugzilla Plugin is not properly configured. So I look at Edit->Plugins->Bugzilla just as it suggests, and I see a bugzilla URL that looks right, and blank Login and Password.
However, since I just did the F12 installation, which presumably is designed for any user, not a developer or member of the F12 project, there is no reason to assume that I even HAVE a login. So this is the first question: what Login and Password are they expecting here? Is there a special Login for the ABRT?
I have fedora 12 32 bits installed on a Macbook pro (intel core duo) I did "yum update" this morning, I have restarted the system and got the following message:Starting abrt daemon: abrtd: Failed to start: got sig 2 FAILEDI have browsed in the web but I cannot find useful information. Then I typed:$rpm -qa | grep abrt
Every time I login I get the abrt flashing light at the top of the screen, but nothing comes up. When I try to run it manually from Applications->System Tools->Automatic Bug Reporting Tool I get a popup with:
Error while loading the dumplist. org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus)Is anybody else seeing this? If so, any idea as to what's going on? How to fix it?
I could just dump abrt since it's hardly a necessity, but I'm inclined not to as I think it's a good idea which could potentially be of great benefit to us all.
Question about the bug reporting system that I think is called ABRT Struggling with F15 and want to file a bug report, but the backtrace thingy says I should remove sensitive data first. Obviously a good idea, but the report is full of what to a non-programmer looks like gibberish - things like what I guess are hexadecimal numbers or memory addresses, none of which I understand. Can any of that incomprehensible stuff contain sensitive data, like encryption keys or anything someone would need to crack a machine? If I remove all of that then the bug report will be pretty sparse.
(Same question applies to SMOLT - machine profie report - as well) Or is "sensitive" just about the human readable data in the reports?
I installed Fedora 12 onto my PC today and I've tried installing a set of updates and get the following
A package could not be found that allows the action to complete.

frequently getting a red symbol on my taskbar with the message "crash detected in abrt-gui ...".What program is producing this? There is no indication of what action I'm supposed to take, so the message is not useful. It also seems to violate a basic principle that any program producing an error message should announce its own name.
Has anyone noticed ABRT not being able to connect to Bugzilla or the remote Core Dump analysis server? Since my upgrade during the beta phase of F15 I have been unable to file bug reports from ABRT's traces, nor has it offered me the option to file bugs to bugzilla. What it does, however, is offer me to analyse the Core Dump and backtrace of the crash using either the remote server or locally with GDB. Needless to say I'm clueless in GDB, and it requires a LOT of debug symbols found in the corresponding debug packages. But trying to use the remote analysis server always results in a message of the server being busy and to try again later. IIRC the last time I was able to file a bug through ABRT was in 13, has anyone been able to do so in 15?
I just downloaded a copy of the Old Testament onto my laptop from the Windows side of my desktop.Alas, all of the links are in lower case and all of the file names came across in upper.way to rename all of the files in a directory to be in lower case instead of upper?
Does anyone know of a way to do a mass build of srpms? For example if I wanted to build loads of packages but with different default installation paths or compiler flags. Are there any tools to do this?
I have a Linux OS, and I want to make it as an image so that I can install 20 servers with that image as baseline OS.How to do that? As I know: 1. kickstart == is only for new OS instalation, it needs a Linux CD source 2. systemimage == is for clone the partition (not massive deployment) 3. kiwi == only for SUSE
I have a fedora 14 system. I booted a suse installation that existed on an external harddisk and wanted to access my original fedora user home directory using non-root preveliges(so that i can use the gui file manager), so I searched on the internet and made a command to (chown -R mysuseUser:Users *) thinking that it will only affect the current mount permissions (not permenantly) put it did change the file system... i realized and cut it in the middle but some corruption was done. and then my fedora gui login screen was missing any username. tried to fix that by going to my fedora and executing chown (once using --from , and once without --from) and changed all root file system recursively to be owned by root and then changed my /home/myuserName ownerships all recursively to be owned by myUserName after that... still the system is corrupted..... when i login to genome i have several crash messages (gdiskutility is one of them) and networking is disabled (i cannot connect to neither wireless nor wired nor wireless broadband). also when i plug USB/esata harddisks nothing happens
now i can only do work from my external harddisk`s suse linux. what can i do to restore my system ? I have a previous dd image of my entire harddrive, but it is more than one month old and also I don`t want to do a restore to my entire harddrive.. can i clone some ownerships from files in dd image to their corresponding ones in my fedora system ? if so, how can i even mount a dd image ?
Recently I setup a system for a non-technical user. He is only using Firefox, Pidgin and OpenOffice for about 2 hours a day. I have created a folder "/home/jim/myFiles" where he can save his document files. But Jim has accidentally deleted his myFiles folder on 2 occasions. He had intended to delete a file in that folder. Is there a way to lock the folder so that the user and create/read/write documents in that folder but not delete the folder itself?
I have an SD-VIA-1A2S PCI card with 2 sata ports (and one ATA-133 that isn't used). Two new Western Digital Caviar Green drives (WD10EARS 1TB) throw repeated errors in kern.log (removed date/time/host info for brevity):
I'm using Ubuntu 9.04 - 2.6.28-18-generic, though I have tried live cds of Ubuntu 9.10, Fedora 12 and OpenSUSE 11.2 - all running various 2.6.31 kernels - and all received the same error.Based on testing these drives and this card in two other machines and combos of connecting the drives directly to the motherboard or the add-in card, I'm relatively convinced that it's the VIA chipset that is the problem.Another computer that also has an onboard VIA SATA chipset (like the add-in card) produces the same errors when the drives are directly on that motherboard. I have been able to verify that the drives are perfectly good, and I tried everything I can think of in terms of swapping cables, psu isn't overloaded, etc.
The error happens on boot once or twice, after using fdisk on the drive once or twice, and constantly when attempting to sync a new mdadm raid 1 array created on the two drives.I'm completely open to buying a new PCI add-in card if someone can recommend one with 2 internal sata ports that works well in Debian/Ubuntu.
