Help us crashing Volumio, to make it stronger

Postby michelangelo » Tue Mar 13 2018 14:23

WIth the goal of making Volumio as stable as possible, starting from release 2.376, an automatic crash reporter is now included.

What it does is sending the crash stack trace to us, when a crash occurs (no personal information are sent, crash-reports are not public, and they are deleted automatically after being inspected).
I just ask myself why I did not do it before, since I am catching a ton of bugs.

So, the current goal I have is to make Volumio as stable as possible, by fixing all the bugs uncovered by this new system (also I will forward logs to plugins developers when the crash affects a specific plugin).
As always, Volumio is made great more by its users than its developers, so I am here to ask a little help.

Please, try to crash Volumio: do the worst things to it, do unappropriate operations and treat it really badly. So we will be able to receive all edge case reports and therefore fix very sporadic bugs.

Also, if you've suggestions or recomendations, let us know !
