I installed an application from the developer's website and it was crashing.
I tried using this form of apport-retrace to get a report I could email to the dev myself:
apport-retrace --confirm --gdb --sandbox system --verbose --cache /my/path/cache/apport-retrace --output /mypath/apport-retrace/appname.1000.crash /var/crash/_usr_bin_appname.1000.crash
The error is:
ERROR: report file does not contain one of the required fields: CoreDump DistroRelease Package ExecutablePath
I checked the crash file and the missing field is "Package." However, the application does not come from a Debian package. Is there a way I can tell apport-retrace to ignore this field and generate the best report it can?
EDIT: I am not trying to report the bug to Ubuntu. I'm also not seeking to submit a bug report to any bug tracker. My goal is to read the crash report myself. That's really my only goal. Once I read the crash report in this particular case I'll email the dev. But in general, I want a tool that will let me read the crash reports generated by the standard tools installed on Ubuntu.
