„The Automatic Bug Reporting Tool, commonly abbreviated as ABRT, consists of the

abrtd

daemon and a number of system services and utilities to process, analyze, and report detected problems. The daemon runs silently in the background most of the time, and springs into action when an application crashes or a kernel oops is detected. The daemon then collects the relevant problem data such as a core file if there is one, the crashing application’s command-line parameters, and other data of forensic utility. For a brief overview of the most important ABRT components, see Table 28.1, “Basic ABRT components”.“

„ABRT is capable of reporting problems to a remote issue tracker. Reporting can be configured to happen automatically whenever an issue is detected, or problem data can be stored locally, reviewed, reported, and deleted manually by a user. The reporting tools can send problem data to a Bugzilla database, a Red Hat Technical Support (RHTSupport) site, upload it using

FTP

/

SCP

, email it, or write it to a file.“

the gui looks like this:

while this service surely has its validity, i do not get why it is running per default

also service hangs and i have to wait 1min 30sec for th pc to properly shutdown

i rather would like to be asked if i want it running
