Bug Description

Binary package hint: apport

With the apport convenience functions it is supposed to be possible to find all the devices of a particular class for example:


should return all the multimedia devices. However, on my system which has two soundcards only one of them is returned. Also there are 2 display devices in my system a VGA compatible controller and a Display controller. The driver 'radeonfb' is associated with the VGA controller but hookutils.pci_devices(0x03) only returns the Dipslay controller although they both have the same class. This makes the pci_devices convenience function much less useful, however I don't think any hooks currently use this function.

This might actually be a feature of lspci (or limitation) as executing lspci with multiple '-s' options only returns one of the devices.

This bug was fixed in the package apport - 1.6-0ubuntu1

apport (1.6-0ubuntu1) karmic; urgency=low

  * New upstream release:
    - Add support for kernel crashes, thanks to Michael Vogt!
    - apport/ui.py, run_crash(): Do not re-collect information if we already
      have a Dependencies field. This happens when calling apport on an already
      pre-processed .crash file with -c. (LP: #394497)
    - apport/hookutils.py, pci_devices(): Deliver all matching devices, not
      just the last one. (LP: #398906)
    - hookutils.py, _get_module_license(): Return "invalid" if modinfo fails,
      so that they do not count as "free". (LP: #341720)
    - packaging-apt-dpkg.py: Support additional custom native origins in
      /etc/apport/native-origins.d/ . (LP: #386052)
    - packaging-apt-dpkg.py: Drop PPA origin hack, launchpad behaves properly
    - apport-gtk: Avoid focus stealing when being called without arguments (i.
      e. auto-launched). LP: #396243)
    - apport-kde: Use standard gettext again
    - Fix handling of PC lacking disassembly due to invalid memory location.
  * debian/local/apport-collect: Tag bugs with "apport-collected" on success.
