gst-feedback — generate debug info for GStreamer bug reports

Description

gst-feedback is a utility that scans the system for various information that is useful to GStreamer developers to help diagnose user problem.

Depending on the type of bug report, it may be useful to attach the output of gst-feedback when you contact the developers.

NOTE: The current version of this script scans many dirs: /usr/lib /usr/local/lib /home /usr/include /usr/local/include /home (again) for various GStreamer installations. Depending on your system you may not want to do this. Improvements to the script are welcome.

Usage

Generate the feedback information by running gst-feedback:

gst-feedback

Possibly redirect output and errors to a file:

gst-feedback &> myfeedback

Warning

The gst-feedback dumps a lot of information about a system, some of which may be considered sensitive. If this is a concern, review the information before posting to a public forum, such as the GStreamer bug tracking system.
