    Genuine error message

    I've gotten the following error message on my version of 12.04 LTS



    The message doesn't give me an option for more details or what is actual causing the problem. Can anyone help with identifying the error message? Thanks.

    Report the problem then look in /var/log/apport for messages.

    Re: Genuine error message

    If you do not find anything in the logs and your system is running fine, then you can just disable the "apport" reporting system. Its suppose to be disabled by default. It is not installed on my system by choice.

    Thanks for the replies guys.

    Reading how to disable

    Ubuntu 12.04 and later

    Starting with 12.04, Apport itself is running at all times because it collects crash data for whoopsie (see ErrorTracker). However, the crash interception component is still disabled. To enable it permanently, do:
    sudo nano /etc/apport/crashdb.conf... and add a hash symbol # in the beginning of the following line:
    'problem_types': ['Bug', 'Package'],To disable crash reporting just remove the hash symbol.
    I've checked crashdb.conf and there is no hash tag on the beginning of the line
    'problem_types': ['Bug', 'Package'],

    So should I be getting these error messages?
