Stemming a flood of kernel warnings
 
Starting around when kernel 3.4.x came out for FC16, I started getting
frequent ABRT reports for this kernel warning:


https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=854070

As I note in the bug, a new report is generated every time I log off or
resume the laptop from suspend. Sometimes ABRT notices that the incident
is a duplicate, but usually it decides that it's a new incident and
dutifully informs me via the ABRT applet's warning light icon. Frankly,
it's gotten rather tiresome to see that icon pop up nearly every time I
log on or resume from suspend. For now I've disabled the ABRT applet in
XFCE4's auto start list but that's obviously not a great solution.


Is there any possible way I could configure ABRT to stop nagging me about
this particular bug? Note this "bug" is really just a WARN()/assertion in
a kernel module (i915). Other than the annoyance caused by the frequent
bug reports, it causes no visible harm to the function of my system.


Thanks,
Dave

You could try adding a blacklist for the kernel package to
/etc/abrt/abrt-action-save-package-data.conf. I've not tried this for
the kernel package but it allows you to turn off analysis by package name.

Alternately you could disable the libreport event that abrt is
responding to - these are configured in /etc/libreport/events.d/.

Regards,
Bryn.

I've gone ahead and added "kernel, kernel-PAE" to
/etc/abrt/abrt-action-save-package-data.conf and reenabled the ABRT GUI.
I'll wait and see what effect that has on the bugs that show up in the
ABRT GUI.


Thanks,
Dave
