This is present in the KDE live of Fedora 23 RC5 as well.

ABRT's version is "abrt-2.6.2-7.fc23.i686" here.

Comment 3 Fedora Blocker Bugs Application 2015-10-27 19:56:09 UTC
Proposed as a Blocker and Freeze Exception for 23-final by Fedora user juliuxpigface using the blocker tracking app because:

 Since this affects gnome-abrt, which is a standard application of both release blocking desktops, this bug seems to violate the "2.4.6 Default application functionality" Final criteria.

"All applications that can be launched using the standard graphical mechanism of a release-blocking desktop after a default installation of that desktop must start successfully and withstand a basic functionality test."


Comment 4 Adam Williamson 2015-10-27 20:26:41 UTC
Yeah, I see it on 32-bit too. In gnome-abrt you have to click 'Details' on a crash to see it. I think I did get a valid report submission, though; perhaps it depends if you use remote retrace or not.

Comment 5 Adam Williamson 2015-10-27 21:34:36 UTC
Well, that 'caller_uid' line appears to come from abrt, abrt/src/dbus/abrt-dbus.c , in handle_method_call() :

    log_notice("caller_uid:%ld method:'%s'", (long)caller_uid, method_name);

not sure what's going wrong, there, though, yet.

Comment 6 Adam Williamson 2015-10-27 22:08:44 UTC
I'm at least +1 FE for this. I'm kinda on the fence about blocker-iness, it would depend on exactly how likely it would be to submit broken reports.

Comment 7 Kevin Fenzi 2015-10-27 22:16:33 UTC
+1FE here... but yeah, would like to know more before calling it a blocker.

Comment 8 Giulio 'juliuxpigface' 2015-10-27 22:21:30 UTC
I've reported this and another bug ( with the "broken" gnome-abrt and found no further issues.

If new tests will uncover some bugs, I'll change my votes. But for now... Even though I've proposed it, I'm -1 blocker and +1 FE.

Comment 9 Mike Ruckman 2015-10-27 22:24:41 UTC
+1 FE and +1 Blocker if it's submitting bad reports all the time.

Comment 10 Adam Williamson 2015-10-27 22:26:13 UTC
That's enough votes for FE at least, marking Accepted.

Comment 11 Adam Williamson 2015-10-27 22:48:27 UTC
I was able to report #1275844 from a KDE live image suffering from this bug, so it does seem like this is cosmetic (affecting only the info displayed in abrt-cli and gnome-abrt), it doesn't affect actual crash report submission.

Funnily, that makes it quite a weak FE for me - fixing seems like actually a bigger deal.

Comment 12 Jakub Filak 2015-10-27 23:29:39 UTC
Upstream commit fixes this bug.

I am going to push the patch to distgit and update

Comment 13 Fedora Update System 2015-10-28 00:35:51 UTC
abrt-2.7.0-2.fc23 libreport-2.6.3-1.fc23 has been submitted as an update to Fedora 23.

Comment 14 Stephen Gallagher 2015-10-28 02:05:23 UTC
-1 blocker, +1 FE

If it's still submitting valid data, then that's the part that's fundamentally important. We can fix the UI in an update.

Comment 15 Matthew Miller 2015-10-28 12:37:25 UTC
Yeah, what Stephen Gallagher said. -1 blocker, +1 fe.

Comment 16 Fedora Update System 2015-10-31 16:09:03 UTC
abrt-2.7.0-2.fc23, libreport-2.6.3-1.fc23 has been pushed to the Fedora 23 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
