Apport does not create a crash report

Asked by Michael Geselbracht on 2011-10-18

After updgrading to Ubuntu 11.10 the XServer crashes about once per hour. Now I want to submit a bug report using apport. I have enabled apport by setting 'enabled=1' in /etc/default/apport.
'sudo service apport status' returns 'apport start/running'.

Now, if the XServer crashes, no file is written in /var/crashes. I also let a test program crash on purpose (segfault) and nothing happend.

Any ideas how I should proceed?

Thanks in advance

What happens if you run:
ubuntu-bug xorg

O.k., now apport is collecting informations about the system and apparently let me submit a bug report (I did not send it).
But as this report does not seem to contain any crash related informations I am not sure if it is useful.

However, the 'high-level' functions of apport seem to work.

Maybe read through bug reports (click on top of the page: 'Bugs') and in case confirm or write a new one.
When there isn't enough space left on disk it also doesn't create bug reports in /var/crash because sometimes they can be really huge.

Can you help with this problem?
