How to report a crash?

Asked by Colin Law on 2012-07-06

Running Marlin on Ubuntu 12.04 are there some instructions on how to report a crash? I had one and the ubuntu crash detector did its thing but I suspect that is not enough as it did not ask for details of what I was doing and so on. Also should I install marlin-dbg?

Hello,

Marlin doesn't really support apport for the automated bug reports by choice. I don't consider thoses reports really reliable or efficient. If you are able to reproduce a crash and want to provide a backtrace to help us detect the problem u have to do it manually.

All the procedure is well described in Ubuntu wiki: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Backtrace

A brief description of the context may help too.
And yes you should install marlin-dbg.

Thanks a ton to help us make Marlin a better application.
