The bug reporting tool is available in Control Panel can be used to easily send a bug report to the development team responsible for the software which produced the bug.
To access this tool, go to Systemsteuerung → Report a bug or type pc-bugreport from the command line. The initial screen for this tool is shown in Figure 8.20a.
Select the software component that most closely matches where the bug occurs. For example, if the bug occurs when using a KDE utility, select "Desktop environment", or if the bug occurs when using an application that was installed using AppCafe®, select "PC-BSD software (pbi)". When in doubt, select "PC-BSD base system".
In the example shown in Figure 8.20b, the user has selected "PC-BSD base system" then "Next".
If the development team has a bug tracker, its URL will be displayed. If you click the "Launch web browser" button, that website will be opened in the default web browser so that you can search for existing bugs and create a new bug if one does not already exist. Note that you will need to register first if this is your first bug and that you must be logged in in order to create a new bug.If the development team has a mailing list, its email address will be listed. The URL to the mailing list will also be displayed so that you can search its archives and subscribe to the list. Note that you will need to be subscribed to a mailing list before you can report a bug on that list. To report the bug, click the "Compose email" button to open the default mail application. To subscribe to or read the archives of the list, click the "Launch web browser" button.
The three icons in the "Toolbox" section can be used to gather useful information to include in your bug report. If you click the first icon on the left, a pop-up menu allows you to create any of the following:
- Diagnostic report
- FreeBSD-Version (uname -a)
Wenn Sie einen Eintrag im Menü klicken, werden die Ergebnisse in einem Fenster angezeigt. Sie können den Inhalt so in Ihre Fehlermeldung kopieren.
If you click the second icon, it will generate a PCI devices list. This is useful information if your built-in wireless card is not working.
If you click the third icon, the default snapshot utility for the desktop will open so that you can include a snapshot in your bug report.
