Subject Re: How to enable crash log for AOO3.4?
Date Tue, 29 May 2012 12:26:27 GMT

maybe it depends on the crash. For testing purpose the developer Hennes 
Rohling (nick hro) once created the tool kill.exe which was part of the 
tools project within OOo. This kill.exe allows you to sent the proper 
signal to the soffice.bin (soffice.exe was just the starter process) 
process on a Win32 platform. I once used it to check if the crash 
reports generated were readable by the ReportMail database to allow 
further automation of crash report data eg. to automatically create bug 
reports in case there was a given amount of equal stack traces.


kill -NULL soffice.bin

kills the soffice.bin process to allow crashdump creation

On Win32 the crash reporter generates a dmp file which can be read by 
Microsoft's windbg application also known as "Debugging Tools for 
Windows". On other platforms it creates an ASCII readable call stack 
based on the system's backtrace function.
