Debugging the 'something has gone wrong' screen

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

The 'Oh no! Something has gone wrong' screen is rather un-helpful from
the point of view of debugging. I'm working on a live image for the Test
Day on Thursday; the one I'm currently testing is very unstable on my
laptop, and hit that screen three times within two minutes of testing
(immediately on first attempted login, then shortly after the session
started the next two logins, while I was trying to get the wireless
connected). I don't know how I can provide a useful bug report, though,
because I've no idea what the screen really means (_what_ went wrong?
Why is it so unrecoverable that all you can do is pop up a BSOD and kick
me to gdm?) or how to debug it. A guide would help :) thanks!
