Description Björn Michaelsen 2012-03-21 07:03:57 UTC

describes how to get a stacktrace for a crasher. If you can reproduce the
crasher of an existing bug and it is missing a stacktrace, it is of great help
to add the stacktrace to the bug. This EasyHack is to create a ready-to-go VirtualBox image, that would allow users on all platforms to quick and easy generate stacktraces.

Assigning to myself.
Comment 2 Korrawit Pruegsanusak 2012-05-11 09:15:32 UTC
My questions:
* Which LibO version we should pack?
* Also, we are quite fast at the new version, so I'm not sure how frequently the VirtualBox owner/creator has to update it? or let the user update LibO by himself?

adding LibreOffice developer list as CC to unresolved EasyHacks for better visibility.

I can create these images, if you can tell me which OS version and which Libre Office version you want to install?

I think we would want to replicate the user's system as much as possible. So, the OS and LO version would depend on the bug report.

For Linux, we could put http://www.vagrantup.com/ to good use.

My team has created a virtual box image (*.ova file) of Lubuntu 16.04 with LibreOffice installed and some shortcuts to run LO to get various logs, like described here:


This should help with this bug: https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=79650

Now the question is: Where do we upload the *.ova file?

We discussed this on IRC and it was decided there is no need for this based on how we have done things over the years. Closing.
