How to report bugs

by PilzAdam » Mon Mar 11, 2013 16:46

If you want to report bugs, please follow these steps:

  1. Search on github forum if the bug is already reported or solved

  2. Minetest issues Minetest Game issues

  3. Collect information about the bug (see below)
  4. Create a new 'issue' on github

  5. Create a new Minetest issue Create a new Minetest Game issue
Collecting information about the bug:
  • Is the bug reproducible?
  • How can you reproduce the bug?
  • What is your operating system?
  • What is your version of Minetest?
  • What game do you use? (e.g. minetest_game, MiniTest, dwarves)
Also add output from debug.txt in the topic (use the [code] tags of BBCode for that):
  • Go to the bin/ directory of your Minetest copy (or ~/.minetest/ in a globally installed Minetest) and delete the existing debug.txt
  • Add "debug_log_level = verbose" (*) to minetest.conf
  • Start Minetest and reproduce the bug
  • Close Minetest (if it hasnt crashed already) and copy the contents of the new debug.txt
  • (Remove "debug_log_level = verbose" from minetest.conf)

If debug.txt doesn't contain anything but a console pops up, post the content of the console.

(*) If you are using Minetest 0.4.11 or earlier, use "debug_log_level = 4" instead.
