Other Mageia Tools

There are more Mageia tools than those that can be started in the Mageia Control Center. Click on a link below to learn more, or continue reading the next pages.

Mageia Bug Report Tool


Usually, this tool[50] starts automatically when a Mageia tool crashes. However, it is also possible that, after filing a bug report, you are asked to start this tool to check some of the information it gives, and then provide that in that existing bug report.

If a new bug report needs to be filed and you are not used to doing that, then please read How to report a bug report properly before clicking on the "Report" button.

In case the bug has already been filed by someone else (the error message that drakbug gave will be the same, then), it is useful to add a comment to that existing report that you saw the bug, too.

Sbírat logy a systémové informace pro hlášení chyb


Tento nástroj[51] můžete spustit a používat z příkazové řádky.

It is advised to write the output of this command to a file, for instance by doing drakbug_report > drakbugreport.txt, but make sure you have enough disk space first: the file can easily be several GBs large.


The output is far too large to attach to a bug report without first removing the unneeded parts.

At the time this help page was written, the "syslog" part of this command's output was empty, because this tool had not yet been adjusted to our switch to systemd. If it is still empty, you can retrieve the "syslog" by doing (as root) journalctl -a > journalctl.txt. If you don't have a lot of diskspace, you can, for instance, take the last 5000 lines of the log instead with: journalctl -a | tail -n5000 > journalctl5000.txt.

Display Available NFS And SMB Shares


Tento nástroj[52] můžete spustit a používat pouze z příkazové řádky.

Display Your PCI, USB and PCMCIA Information


Tento nástroj[53] můžete spustit a používat z příkazové řádky. Dostanete více informací, pokud jej použijete jako root.

lspcidrake gives the list of all the connected devices to the computer (USB, PCI and PCMCIA) and the used drivers. It needs the ldetect and ldetect-lst packages to work.

With the -v option, lspcidrake adds the vendor and device identifications.

lspcidrake often generates very long lists, so, to find an information, it is often used in a pipeline with the grep command, like in these examples:

Information about the graphic card;

lspcidrake | grep VGA

Information about the network

lspcidrake | grep -i network

-i to ignore case distinctions.

In this screenshot below, you can see the action of the -v option for lspcidrake and the -i option for grep.

There is another tool that gives information about the hardware, it is called dmidecode (under root)
