View Full Version : Bugzilla problem

September 12th, 2005, 01:16 AM
Hi - this is probably not the right place for this post but I'm not sure where else to put it. I have been trying to submit a bug via bugzilla. I have created an account etc. I have filled in all fields in the bug report form but submission of the bug, ie, pressing the 'commit' button brings up the following message:

Component Needed

You must choose a component to file this bug in. If necessary, just guess.

There is no 'component' field on the bug report page. Unless this is the 'package' field? If so I have entered the name of the package - xfmedia. Can anyone help me out here? I can't understand what I am doing wrong.

Sorted :-#
Interesting that Xfce and related apps are not included as 'components' or packages - a bug in bugzilla?

Bugzilla is only for tracking things in main, not in universe or backports. Thus things not in main have no component in bugzilla.

Cheers for the reply. I realised this well after I'd posted :oops:

Is there anywhere to report bugs in packages outside main?
