Bug in 8.04, fixed in 8.10 - How to get fixed in 8.04 which is LTS?


I found a bug in vinagre/vino in Ubuntu 8.04. The bug is documented and has been processed here: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=570801

My question is... How do I get the fix backported to 8.04? Where do I start? 8.04 is supposed to be supported through April 2011 so I don't think I should have to upgrade to 8.10 - that is why I am using an LTS release.

Thanks,

Ken

You can file a bug report at Launchpad. Here is how to do it:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ReportingBugs
Also go here to review bugs already filed:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/
And to file a bug, create an account and post your bug here:
https://launchpad.net/distros/ubuntu/+bugs/+login

If the bug is present in Ubuntu 8.04, and fixed in 8.10, then it is likely that the devs are aware of it already I would think. Check it out at Launchpad.

Thanks tommcd! I have reported it on launchpad. I have reported a bug or two there previously. I guess I am confused as to where to report a bug. Should I start by reporting it to the distro keepers (Ubuntu) or the application keepers (vinagre/vino)?

When I first installed 8.10 I found that mplayer was hosed (along with some other things). After doing some research on-line I got conflicting opinions as to was it a bug in mplayer, Gnome, X, Ubuntu 8.10??? I basically said pissonit and went back to 8.04 which seems to work fine for everythnig other than this issue.

I recently switched from vino to x11vnc as the latter is faster and less resource intensive on the remote machine. It also does not have the copy/paste issue so I am OK. I would like to get the issue fixed in 8.04 however for those folks who use the vinagre/vino combination. Perhaps the launchpad report will do the trick.

Thanks again,

Ken

The Ubuntu developers repackage and customize many of the applications that are used in Ubuntu. So I would just report it to the Ubuntu devs and let them decide whether the bug resides in Ubuntu, or upstream in the application development itself.
