Description Jeremy Cribb 2008-09-14 19:33:48 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 4.1.1)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages

if i'm not doing this right, PLEASE, someone point me in the right direction.  I'm in the middle of finishing dissertation and don't have time to research how to participate in reporting/handling bugs/crashes.  I DO WANT TO PARTICIPATE HOWEVER, so if there's a COMPREHENSIVE manual/howto somewhere on how to do this more effectively, PLEASE let me know via "jcribb <AT> email <dot> unc <dot> edu"..... 

Specifically, Konqueror seems to give me this crash report every time I close the app using the title bar's "X" The Konqueror backtrace follows:

Application: Konqueror (konqueror), signal SIGABRT

Jeremy, thanks for the bug report and for your interest in bug reporting and bug handling! Help is always appreciated :-)

A nice guide how to write bug reports can be found at

If you want to get involved in bug handling for KDE, the Bugsqaud is an excellent starting point:
A good way to get starting is to take part in one of the bug days, but you are always welcome to browse through the bug database and see if you can add useful information to any report.

About the crash you reported: There are bugs with similar backtraces (like bug 164126), but one cannot be sure if it's a duplicate before it can be reproduced by us (in this case, maybe only the developers can tell). It would be helpful if you could provide step-by-step instructions to crash Konqueror (e.g., go to some URL, do something, close Konqueror, crash) if the bug is reproducible for you. Thanks!
