Please, can you describe how your problem occurs.
And try to obtain a backtrace by following the instructions on https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingProgramCrash.

Thanks for your bugreport.

Could you please run "sudo apt-get check" and see if that changes anything?

OK,

this was the problem:

The CoreDump-file is 42 MB so my report got truncated.

I will upload it further over here.

Please can you help me out with how to do further CoreDump backtraces?

Thanks,

Hi there,

I think this was a python bug?

Can you give me instructions on how to debug the crash report?

Thanks,

I cannot provide any /var/log files for this. The reason is that both these crashes occurred on a live-cd and my swap is not big enough to download all dbgsym's and gdb, alleyoop, valgrind and valgrind and stuff. I also would need to update or debug network-manager first, since I only have wireless or mobile broadband access. Also I cannot #root dpkg-reconfigure -aup low, because I cannot reboot! I cannot possibly upload anything less than the minimal report and I did not save .x-session-errors or a log file for this.

It is not reproducible from hard disk. #root apt-get check is irrelevant for the aforementioned reason.

I post a copy: on the forum and one to Michael and Arnaud. (If this is not the right procedure, please tell me which exact steps to take next time.)

Thanks!

Hi Michael,

I just remembered that I got a python-gobject warning on one of my previously reported synaptic bugs (8.10 alfas). I hope to hear back from anyone soon. Otherwise I will try to contact Sebastian Heinlein, as I think he may actually be responsible for this kind of stuff. (Really, there were so many people 'contacted' with my last bug report that I am only guessing. Happy new year anyway to the lot of you. LOL)

The problem below generated a crash report and apport-gtk did its thing. I got the pop-up "not a genuine ubuntu package". I guess this is because it is an early jaunty 'dbgsym'? Or was this really replaced (e.g. python-gobject by python2.5)?

Ok, I do not just feel like debugging dpkg with gdb as I need to go to the post office for registered mail before closing time.

Hi Michael,

I reproduced the crash, but gdb indicated nothing.

As you can see above I get an 'please run dpkg --configure -a' error. I did this and include the output bellow and in file.

One more question though:

Is there any relevance to this bug? I ran it from the live cd and not many people will be using 'root# update-manager -c -d' from a live cd. Still I am glad to help you out if it can discover any significant weaknesses in the code off course.

Cheers,

Thomas

Hi there,

I did it again. The update-manager gdb session would not crash on me, so I tried ctrl+C and then the gdb session of the update-manager gdb session crashed and it did have stack. The update-manager gdb session itself did not. Also dpkg --configure -a gdb session gave the same (type off) output again. I hope this helps.

Cheers,

Thomas
