5.3. Manually Reporting Software Failures

Use the spacewalk-abrt utility to manually report software failures to your Satellite server. The following procedure shows how to perform a manually send a software failure report.

Procedure 5.2. To manually report software failures

  1. Use the abrt-cli list parameter to display a list of existing failure reports.
    # abrt-cli list
    Directory: /var/tmp/abrt/ccpp-2013-02-28-15:48:50-8820
    count: 2
    executable: /usr/bin/python2.7
    package: python-2.7.3-13.fc16
    time: Thu 28 Feb 2013 03:48:50 PM CET
    uid: 0
    Directory: /var/tmp/abrt/oops-2013-02-27-14:16:03-8107-1
    count: 3
    package: kernel
    time: Wed 27 Feb 2013 02:16:03 PM CET
  2. After you have identified the failure that you want to report, use the --report option to send the report to the Satellite server.
    # spacewalk-abrt --report /var/tmp/abrt/ccpp-2013-02-28-15:48:50-8820
  3. To manually report all of the software failures that have occurred on your system, use the --sync option:
    # spacewalk-abrt --sync
