Where to report them?

If you want to report a bug please use our official bug reporting tool, even if you already reported it by sending and e-mail, IRC or use our forums.

Good practices with bug reporting

  • Always provide detailed and precise description
  • Use attachement feature
  • Attach screenshots
  • Attach program output from console with LC_ALL=C prefix - like LC_ALL=C urpmi elfutils
  • Attach joutput from journalctl -f -n 1000
  • One bug, one report
