  • Topic: Log collection continued (and Bugger! enhancements)
  • Some details about the topic:
    The last meeting raised the point of possibly enhancing the Bugger! tool to help in collecting logs. Specifically

<thilo[m]>: “If someone could contribute a poc to bugger, i think that would help”

The Bugger! development Team :wink: has listened and the latest beta introduces a PoC of a “plug-in” system based on systemd units. Rudimentaty documentation is available here and builds of the 0.10.x beta are available at the Chum Testing repo.
This meeting topic is more a FYI and a request for feedback from anyone interested, and an invitation to improve that topic at the Bugger development repo (GitHub - sailfishos-chum/bugger)

This was the last meeting of 2022; thanks to everyone who asked questions and was able to join, we had some nice discussion as always.


One request please. Use the names of the bug reports in the urls and not the t/97898 urls? I used to mouse over each of those and now that delivers no info which means I have to open the urls if I want to see what’s what. I try to keep up! Thanks for all your efforts!


Thanks for the discussion, I’ll see what can be done about the points raised.

Reaching harbour compatability is probably not going to be possible without lots of trickery.

Log sanitation and viewing on the other hand should be possible, it’s just a little scripting. The hard part is to know what to remove.

An issue has been created to add a viewer function. Although depending on log size and verbosity, checking might be hard on the device.
One of the reasons log collection, uploading, and posting are separate steps is to allow users to look at the logs using the tools they like.

“Sanitation” is hard to do in a general way, as has been discussed. No one can know what kind of data might end up in e.g. the journal.

An issue has been created and work has started on an “send by email” function.

Although I think it would be ideal if Jolla could provide a service to deliver files (i.e. a pastebin-type thing, or something like a Nextcloud DAV file share. Ideally authenticated via the Jolla account.

Currently, no. As has been discussed, is uses a couple of non-harbour-compliant functions, and needs some permissions that makes it incompatible. Thaodan has now twice suggested
integrating the app or something similar to the app to the system. This would obviously solve this.

It uses the feature of creating a post through an URL which has all the contents. This URL is passed to the Browser, which does the actual posting. So not strictly “API use”.
This is mainly to avoid having to handle authentication and things in Bugger!.


i’d suggest to paste the /t/ urls and let discourse convert them into their respective titles.

Thank you for keeping this OS alive and well.


I cannot make it to the community meetings, unfortunately. Just wanted to ask if the VoWIFI topic has ever been on the agenda in on of the recent meetings yet?

I am not sure, but you can check the linked meeting logs.

We’ve talked about VoLTE, but if memory serves, not VoWIFI as a speciific question. Feel free to add a question about it @Inte if it’s of interest to you. It’s best if you can make the meeting of course, but not a requirement.
