Everytime my gpu crash and i have to reboot, after the boot appears:

  • the window to report the gpu crash bug
  • when I try to report it, crashes
  • another window appears suggesting me to report the crash of
  • then i try to report it, but when launchpad is opened I see that is reporting the original gpu bug and there is no more trace about crash.

So, how can I report it?

UPDATE: I know that i can report it manually, but how can I give more information, like a backtrace or something similar?

Actually, belongs to the xserver-xorg-video-intel package:

Run dpkg -S to check which package contains this file:

xserver-xorg-video-intel: /usr/share/apport/apport-gpu-error-intel.p

Find out the source package for the binary package xserver-xorg-video-intel using apt-cache showsrc xserver-xorg-video-intel | grep '^Package:'

Package: xserver-xorg-video-intel
Package: xserver-xorg-video-intel

In this case, the source package has the same name as the binary package (xserver-xorg-video-intel), but that may not always be the case (e.g. binary package apt-utils has source apt)

Bugs for that package can be reported on

It seems like my problem began when I installed a Windows program through Wine. I deleted all of Wine's components and all of the remaining install data from the game and everything began to work fine. Maybe that just applies to me but I think everything is working okay now... fingers crossed. This issue plagued me all day long. I hope you get it resolved.

You can go "manually" to launchpad at and file this bug.

It seems like it has happened before, see this.

manually i would have no information apart from the fact that it crashes, I don't think would be useful. (The bug that you linked was not a good example because it has been marked as incomplete) – fain182 Aug 31 '11 at 23:55
I'm sorry then. – desgua Sep 1 '11 at 1:19
