Bug report tool for OpenMandriva Lx

The simple tool is called omv-bug-report.

Open OM Welcome and navigate to OM Features > ‘Bug report tool’

Or open OpenMandriva Control Center and navigate to System > ‘Bug report tool’

Click on the icon, enter your root password in the dialog window when asked.

The tool will gather useful informations from:

  • various configuration files (in /etc/*)
  • various /proc entries (which let know informations about kernel configuration)
  • grub configuration (the boot program)
  • lspcidrake output (for PCI devices listing)
  • lsusb output (for USB devices listing)
  • dmidecode output (to get informations about hardware from the BIOS)
  • systemctl –failed (to report systems or services that failed to be started)
  • journalctl -b (for showing log of current boot)
  • rpm -qa (for listing installed packages)
  • gcc version (for the version of the compiler)

Then all will be packed into an archive and will create the file omv-bug-report.log.zst in your /home directory

This file should be attached to any bugreport.
It will help speed up the work of bugsquasher, and simplify the work of the bugreporter by quickly providing detailed information.

The file is compressed with zst. You can extract the file and read the content with the command unzstd

$ unzstd omv-bug-report.log.zst
omv-bug-report.log.zst: 243166 bytes
