Linux: Redirecting Core Dumps


Apport is a system wide crash dump handler. Will Woods, QA lead in Fedora has been working on adopting Apport from Ubuntu and Neil Horman is pushing some reimplemented patches upstream that is required for this feature in true Fedora fashion. Originally targeted for the next release, this has now been moved to Fedora 9. A important feature that will make it easy for users to report issues. Good to keep an eye on.


Neil pointed to Ubuntu's Apport, "Ubuntu has implemented lots of their functionality with some patches that they never pushed upstream (and IMHO, have some security issues). This is my attempt to do what their doing sanely, so the other distro's (primarily fedora) can take advantage of this technology."
