Important: please do not pack (tar, zip, etc.) or compress the log files before uploading to launchpad. Just attach them as they are produced - this makes it easier for developers and triagers.
# stop NetworkManager ( < karmic) sudo killall NetworkManager # stop NetworkManager ( >= karmic - aka upstart) sudo stop network-manager # restart modemmanager with --debug and put output in /tmp/modem.log.txt sudo killall modem-manager; sudo modem-manager --debug 2>&1 | tee /tmp/modem.log.txt # enable PPP debugging too: export NM_PPP_DEBUG=1 # start networkmanager and put log in /tmp/nm.log.txt sudo NetworkManager --no-daemon 2>&1 | tee /tmp/nm.log.txt
# get the latest mm-test.py from git wget http://cgit.freedesktop.org/ModemManager/ModemManager/plain/test/mm-test.py # and run mm-test.py (with modem-manager running) python ./mm-test.py
attach the output a bug.
Testing a patch
Sometimes a developer might ask you to test a quick patch he came up with. Below an example how to do that for modemmanager. If your bug is for some other package, just replace the package name
# get build dependencies sudo apt-get install build-essential fakeroot devscripts sudo apt-get build-dep modemmanager # get sources sudo apt-get source modemmanager # cd into the source directory cd modemmanager-*/ # apply the patch (note that -p1 could also be -p0 if the patch was created without an extra prefix in the diff path) patch -p1 < /tmp/yourdownloadedpatch.diff # build binaries only without signing debuild -b -uc # packages are produced in parent directory cd ../ # install all nm packages sudo dpkg -i modemmanager*.deb
Note that you didnt change the version of the package. so to get back to the "official" current version you need to do something like:
sudo apt-get install --reinstall modemmanager
if you installed other packages from the build, do the same for them.
