Apport enhancement for PowerPC
I am looking to enhance Apport, to collect hardware information about
when ran over PowerPC. For example PowerPC specific details under /proc/
ppc64/* and output of commands like ppc64_cpu, lsvpd, lparstat and others.
By reading through the Apport documentation/very limited code. My
understanding is that, Apport
collects information pretending more towards single application which
crashed, along with hooks
used to collect information about the underlying hardware.
sosreport has been enhanced to work on Ubuntu and sosreport currently
captures PowerPC specific
information. Can you please suggest if is it best to enhance Apport hook
which capture hardware
information to capture PowerPC specific information also or sosreport
will be used by Ubuntu to
capture information about the environment over/along with Apport, when a
bug is reported.
