    apport-gtk processes

    I run a headless Ubuntu server and when I checked ps output, there was thousands of processes like:

    /usr/bin/python3 /usr/share/apport/apport-gtk

    At this rate, I'm worried about running running out of PIDs in my process table, or some other resources, i.e. I'm treating this program as a fork bomb and uninstalling apport, unless someone can offer a better suggestion.

    Thanks

    You can uninstall apport-gtk itself as it's intended to be the desktop gui part of apport.
    Typically it's part of -desktop packages.

    I guess you could remove apport too if you want.
    Or just disable it.

    Uninstalling apport did not seem to have any negative consequences, adding that to my Ubuntu 24 setup steps.
