How to submit a good bug report?
Bugs are tracked via the GitHub issue tracker. Open an issue at:
https://github.com/irssi/irssi/issues
First you should give the following information:
- irssi version, if git (or devel. tarball) then which commit hash (or date
from /version)?
- operating system / distribution and it's version
- when did it crash? did you do something? can you reproduce the crash?
Getting backtrace of the crash also helps a lot, especially if irssi crashes
randomly. If after crash you see text:
"segmentation fault (core dumped)"
It writes a file named "core" or "irssi.core" depending on your OS to
directory where you started irssi. If it doesn't print the "(core dumped)"
or you can't find the core file, you'll have to raise the limit for max.
core file size before running irssi. To do this, say:
ulimit -c unlimited
So, if you have the core file and GNU debugger (gdb), you can get the
backtrace with:
gdb irssi core
set logging file bt.log
set logging on
bt
set logging off
quit
Provide the bt.log file.
Here's an example session:
