Now lets get to storage-ng. I try to port this fix there. So my
first question is, what is similar equivalent in storage-ng
which allows me to see if there is change in storage, so
bootloader proposal is no longer valid?

That was discussed and even documented in
yast2-storage-ng/doc/ but unfortunately
already deleted. Have a look at

Thanks for pointing this out. I will try to discuss it today with ancor when he
is still in Prague.


Also I have to say, that from user POV, segfault and ruby
exception is very very different. When I get ruby exception, I
see popup saying what is a problem. I can continue. I was asked
to report bug. And the most important part, I can get logs as
environment still lives! When I get segfault, I get quick black
screen followed by red area on blue which mention Error occured
during installation without any details and what is more
important: I do not find way how to get any logs, at least
y2signal log will be useful!!

AFAIR as long as the red popup is there you can switch to another
console and copy logs and debug the issue.

Thanks, I am not aware about this possibility. So we should at least add it as
hint for customers which face it and want to grab logs.

For debugging I recommend to attach gdb before the error happens.

In the end with a bit help from google I can get ruby backtrace.

So for future reference, you can get ruby backtrace in gdb ( or if you get core
with this command:

p rb_eval_string_protect("puts caller.inspect", (int *)0)

which will print it to console. If stdout is redirected, you can there write it
to file with

p rb_eval_string_protect("File.write(\"/tmp/debug\", caller.inspect)", (int *)0)

And it should also work with core dumps. So what we need in such case from
customers are core dump from them, which looks reasonable.

Thanks for help
