And post bugnumber please, so I can follow it....

i created my first bugreport:

please if something i have not done correct
(as i have here described a lot of times)
tell me, or change it there.

The best starting point is:


There is a link on the page for submitting reports for Tumbleweed, that
goes to:


It may ask for your login/pass at this point. Then you get to a "guided
form" for filling your report.

If you get into bugzilla page directly, and click on new report, you may
get a list such as this:

All: Show all products (overrides filter)

Internal Novell Products: Internal Novell Products that do not belong to a
Mono: Mono
Novell Products: Novell Products that do not belong to a
openSUSE: openSUSE
SUSE Appliance Toolkit: SUSE Appliance Toolkit
SUSE CaaS Platform: SUSE CaaS Platform
SUSE Customer Center: SCC
SUSE Enterprise Storage: SUSE Enterprise Storage
SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop: SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop
SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension: SUSE Linux Enterprise
High Availability Extension
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server: SUSE Linux Enterprise Server
SUSE Tools: SUSE Tools

Well, the one we need is openSUSE. I got that long list because I was at
<>. If instead I start at
<> the list is much shorter:

First, you must pick a product on which to enter a bug:

openSUSE: openSUSE
openSUSE Backports: openSUSE:Backports project in
openSUSE Distribution: openSUSE Leap & Stable releases
openSUSE Tumbleweed: openSUSE Rolling Release The openSUSE project (not the distribution)

The one you needed was "openSUSE Tumbleweed". Ie, "Product openSUSE
Tumbleweed" in the bugzilla parlance.

So we get to:

By this time, "Product" is already filled, and "reporter" displays your
email. The next item is "Component". You were reporting a problem with
YaST, so choose YaST. At the bottom. Not all issues have a clearly known
component, so in those case choose "other".

The rest of the fields (Severity, hardware, OS) don't touch.

Ok, you may fill hardware as x86-64 and os as openSUSE factory, but this
is redundant information.

I never touch Severity. Well, an exception could be "Enhancement" when
you are asking for a feature, now that openfate is dead.

Assigne. In some cases after asking on the list they tell you to assign
to somebody, so change that field. Or add a name after reporting. By
default I never change it, in case I do a mistake, I leave the default

Then go to "Summary", and forget the rest. It is the next "required"
field, marked with a red asterisk. This is the tittle of the report. It
may simultaneously search for other reports with similar tittle to yours.

Finally, fill the description. If you have logs, add them as
"attachments". Initially it takes only one, but once submitted, you can
add more.
