abrt.conf − Configuration file for abrt.


abrt is a daemon that watches for application crashes. When
a crash occurs, it collects the problem data and takes
action according to its configuration. This document
describes abrt’s configuration file.

The configuration file consists of items in the format
"Option = Value". A description of each item follows:

     DumpLocation = directory
     The directory where should abrt store coredumps and all
     files which are needed for reporting. The default is

     MaxCrashReportsSize = number
     The maximum disk space (specified in megabytes) that
     abrt will use for all the crash dumps. Specify a value
     here to ensure that the crash dumps will not fill all
     available storage space. The default is 1000.

     WatchCrashdumpArchiveDir = directory
     The daemon will watch this directory and call
     abrt−handle−upload on files which appear there. This is
     used to auto−unpack crashdump tarballs uploaded via
     ftp, scp, etc. The directory must exist and be writable
     for abrt. There is no default.

     DeleteUploaded = yes/no
     The daemon will delete an uploaded crashdump archive
     after an atempt to unpack it. An archive will be delete
     whether unpacking finishes successfully or not. The
     default value is no.

     DebugLevel = 0−100
     Allows ABRT tools to detect problems in ABRT itself. By
     increasing the value you can force ABRT to detect,
     process and report problems in ABRT. You have to bare
     in mind that ABRT might fall into an infinite loop when
     handling problems caused by itself. The default is 0
     (non debug mode).

     AutoreportingEvent = event
     A name of event which is run automatically after
     problem’s detection. The event should perform some fast
     analysis and exit with 70 if the problem is known.
     Default is report_uReport.


     AutoreportingEnabled = yes/no
     Enables automatic running of the event configured in
     AutoreportingEvent option.

     ShortenedReporting = yes/no
     Enables shortened GUI reporting where the reporting is
     interrupted after AutoreportingEvent is done. Default
     is Yes if application is running in GNOME desktop
     session; otherwise No.

     ExploreChroots = true/false
     Enables various features exploring process’s root
     directories if they differ from the default root
     directory. The folowing list includes examples of
     enabled features:

      •   query the rpm database in the process’s root

      •   save files like /etc/os−release from the process’s
          root directory Default is false.
