KDE suggested I report this bug directly to postmarketOS (bugs.kde.org)
from MarkG_108@lemmy.ca to postmarketos@lemmy.ml on 23 Nov 2023 12:13

I’m using postmarketOS plasma edge on my Pinephone Pro. The KDE program Kasts (installed from a postmarketOS package) crashed when I tried to run it, so I filed a bug report with them. They suggested that I file this bug directly with postmarketOS. The rationale was:

These kinds of faults tend to happen when a library that Kasts depends on gets updated without Kasts itself getting recompiled. Then you can end up with an instruction that has changed in the underlying lib without Kasts knowing about this, leading to a crash. So, I would think it’s simply a matter of recompiling the package.

I’m not sure where the correct place is to file a bug with postmarketOS. If there is another place where I should do so, then do let me know in the comments below. Thanks.

Thank you for your straight forward and very succinct answer. I did peruse that site, but became confused by the various options that I found in it. If you could decipher the information on the site, and provide an actual link to where exactly I report bugs for postmarketOS packages, that would be appreciated.

You’re right, they don’t make it easy. Kasts is a package drawn from Alpine Linux repos. The proper place to submit an issue according to Postmarketos is therefore:

Thanks. Good to know.

I did hear back from KDE, and they say this bug is being looked at in the Alpine Linux gitlab site: gitlab.alpinelinux.org/alpine/aports/-/…/15496
