Apport - Automatic Application Crash Reporting for openSUSE

Apport for automatic crash reporting on openSUSE.

Many application crashes remain unreported due to different reasons:

  • the crash is silently ignored since no core file is produced
  • existing crash handlers like bug-buddy or Dr. Konqi are desktop application specific
  • the crash is not easy to reproduce
  • the location to report the crash is unknown
Apport gives you an easy way to solve these problems.
