Reportbug is easy to use program for reporting bugs in GNU/Debian Linux. If you are using webmail services like yahoo, MSN, gmail and don't run a SMTP daemon on your computer, you can configure reportbug to reflect both.
Here is my ~/.reportbugrc configuration.
# reportbug preferences file # Version of reportbug this preferences file was written by reportbug_version "3.18" # default operating mode: one of: novice, standard, advanced, expert mode standard # default user interface ui text # offline setting - comment out to be online #offline # name and email setting (if non-default) realname "Rakesh 'arky' Ambati" # email "My_Nick@yahoo.com" # Disable fallback mode by commenting out the following: no-cc header "X-Debbugs-CC: My_Nick@yahoo.com" smtphost bugs.debian.org # You can add other settings after this line. See # /etc/reportbug.conf for a full listing of options.
You can also generate your custom configuration settings using the --configure option of reportbug.
reportbug --configure Please choose the default operating mode for reportbug. 1 novice Offer simple prompts, bypassing technical questions. 2 standard Offer more extensive prompts, including asking about things that a moderately sophisticated user would be expected to know about Debian. 3 advanced Like standard, but assumes you know a bit more about Debian, including "incoming". 4 expert Bypass most handholding measures and preliminary triage routines. This mode should not be used by people unfamiliar with Debian's policies and operating procedures. Select mode: [standard]
Lastly, don't forget to read the How to report a bug in Debian page before rolling your sleeve's to report bugs to Debian BTS.
Happy Bug Hunting!!!!
