Unable to report VirtualBox bug because of apport bug - could find no
obvious other way to report any bugs
Status in apport package in Ubuntu:
Alt-F2 ubuntu-bugs VirtualBox
apport says Application not installed !
But when I just type
ubuntu starts VirtualBox (so it DOES know it's installed)
Since upgarding from 12.04 to 14.04 to 16.04 LTS VirtualBox locks up
on the machine completely, I can't kill any processes cleanly (even as
root equivalent) so I have to log out (attempt repeatedly) or mostly I
need to do a console shutdown - r 0
I have reported this to Oracle VirtualBox, and have lots of info I can
supply to help isolate the bug which I am well on way to isolating,
but my question here is: Is there an alternate method (documented I
may have missed) to report bug with VirtualBox (or any app) that
crashes / fails to work with apport?
Thanks for any help!
