# A yum repo is available to provide easy access to koji builds for [http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=1213313 F11] and [http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=1213321 F10]. Run the following command to create the repo config file for crash-catcher:

<pre>
+
* Restart the computer to launch the daemon and load the necessary dbus configuration files
# cat <<EOF>>/etc/yum.repos.d/crash-catcher.repo

# Next, install the crash-catcher packages: <pre># yum install crash-catcher\*</pre>
 
# Disable bug-buddy: add a line <pre>GNOME_DISABLE_CRASH_DIALOG=1</pre> to ~/.bashrc

after installation some default settings are stored in /etc/crash-catcher/*
 
configuration is written on single line "key = value {, value}"
 
* main config file is /etc/crash-catcher/crash-catcher.conf
 
  * OpenGPGPublicKeys list of GPG keys
 
  * EnableOpenGPG, check if a package is signed with one of keys
 
  * BlackList blacklisted backages
 
  * EnabledPlugins a list of enabled plugis. There should to be at least one language/application plugin and database plugin
 
  * Database denotes database plugin, there has to be one database plugin! (crash-catcher-plugin-sqlite3)
 
  * every language/application plugin can have several reporter plugins. If you want to report something, then it has to have at least one :-)
 
* Plugins conf files are in /etc/crash-catcher/plugins/*
 
  * description of options is in these files.
 
* known working config file /etc/crash-catcher/crash-catcher.conf
 
    # test conf file. it will be generated in the future
 
    # Enable GPG check
 
    EnableOpenGPG = no
 
    # GPG keys
 
    OpenGPGPublicKeys = /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora
 
    # blacklisted packages
 
    BlackList = bash, bind, apache2
 
    # enabled plugins
 
    EnabledPlugins = SQLite3, CCpp, Mailx, Logger
 
    # selected DB plugin
 
    Database = SQLite3
 
    # reporters association
 
    CCpp = Mailx, Logger
 
 
 
=== Known issues ===
 
Consult list of [https://fedorahosted.org/crash-catcher/report/1 active tickets] before reporting an issue.  The most common issues are listed below:
 
* '''Report multiple crashes''' - if you want to report same crash twice, you have to remove CC's DB (default path /var/cache/crash-catcher/crash-catcher-db) and make a crash again
 
* '''dbus timeout''' - if reporting causes an installation of many debuginfos, then a dbus timeout may occur. In that case, try to report crash again after debuginfos are installed.
 
* '''crash-catcher daemon crash''' - if crash-catcher daemon unexpectedly crashs, then look for .lock files in /var/cache/crash-catcher/ and delete them. They may cause a deadlock.
 
* '''Nothing happened?''' - if it seems to do nothing, try to disable PGP checking and restart daemon
 
* '''Graphical warnings''' - gui writes some gtk warnings
 
* '''Report editing''' - report editing from gui doesn't work
 
* '''rpm %requires''' - it needs rpm >= 4.6.0-1 (rc3 segfaults)
