Advice needed about submitting bugs
A few days ago I have installed Debian 3.1 r0 "Sarge" on my PC.
Everything went all right except X-server which didn't start. In fact at
the end of the process the system tried to start it twice but
unsuccessfully, then I recived a message asking me to submit such bug to
Debian bugs tracking system and at last another message appeared saying
that: "This X-server will be disabled. Restart GDM after having
configured it again".
So I submitted the bug to them by e mail specifying on the first line of
the message body the problem source, that is XFree86 and on the second
line its version, that is 188.8.131.52
I attached, at last, the "XFree86.0.log" file in which you could notice
a video card module loading failure.
Yesterday, thinking that problem due to the lack of suitable drivers
for my Matrox Millennium video card, I installed these drivers and
booted again my Debian. Unfortunately X-server didn't start all the
same, but now in "XFree86.0.log" file there was no module loading
failure and, besides, I didn't receive that message to submit that bug
to Debian any longer.
So, I wanted to submit all that to Debian bugs tracking system but they
sent my message back saying that I hadn't specified the bug affected
package and asked me to submit it again.
I will be grateful, then if you give me some instruction about the
Debian Bugs submitting method.
With kind regards,
