Subject Re: How to enable crash log for AOO3.4?
Date Tue, 29 May 2012 13:39:00 GMT


If the crash reporter within your Linux AOO build has crashdump enabled 
then just

kill -SEGV the PID of the soffice.bin process

and have a look at the stack trace that is shown within the ErrorReport 
dialog and compare it with the stack trace within RedHat's Bugzilla. The 
difference makes the basic symbol data that is shown within the call 
stack. This makes the call stack more readable for a developer who needs 
to debug the application. Within Sun's ReportMail backend we were able 
to map the call stack data into code pointers with line numbers.

Kind regards, Joost
