apportcheckresume does not contain package version

Bug #1316845 reported by Brian Murray on 2014-05-06
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
apport (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

[Test Case]
1) run /usr/share/apport/apportcheckresume
2) click show details
3) uncheck "Send an error report"
4) click continue
5) find susres.$DATE_$TIME.crash in /var/crash
6) view "Package: " line in it

With the version of apportcheckresume in Trusty you will notice that there is no package version number in the line, there is just a name (linux-image-1.2.3-generic). With the version from -proposed there will be a package version.

Original Report
The apportcheckresume code does not add the version of the linux package to the crash report in the Package field. This is fixed upstream with:

However, this is not fixed in Ubuntu 14.04 and should be but bug 1316841 needs to be fixed in conjunction with this fix. Otherwise the crashes won't be bucketed together.

This bug was fixed in the package apport - 2.14.1-0ubuntu3.1

apport (2.14.1-0ubuntu3.1) trusty-proposed; urgency=medium

  * Move error handling for invalid .crash files into collect_info(), so that
    it also applies when using the "Show Details..." button in the UI.
    Otherwise the UI just hangs eternally at this point when encountering
    broken core dumps. Cherry-picked from trunk r2789. (LP: #1282349)
  * Add kernel package version to the various kernel-related hooks. Thanks
    Brian Murray. Cherry-picked from trunk r2799. (LP: #1316845)
  * Add a duplicate signature to suspend resume failures. Thanks Brian Murray.
    Cherry-picked from trunk r2800. (LP: #1316841)
