How to report bugs
==================

Bugs should be reported to the GNOME bug tracking system.

account for yourself.

In the bug report please include:

* Information about your system. For instance:

* If rhythmbox crashes when you try to import a folder full of music files
  to your library, you can pinpoint the exact file causing the crash
41
  by running "rhythmbox -d" from a console. It will output lots of debugging

  information, the last file mentioned in the console output will quite likely
43
44
  correspond to the file causing the crash. If you want to save the debug log
  to a file, use "rhythmbox -d 2> debug.log".
