7 minute read

In a few simple steps, your application can be configured to send Linux crash reports to BugSplat.

Before starting make sure to clone the Breakpad repo with Google Git.

Breakpad provides an Autotools build system that will build both the Linux client libraries and the processor libraries. Running ./configure && make in the Breakpad source directory will produce src/client/linux/libbreakpad_client.a, which contains all the code necessary to produce minidumps from an application.

For more information on Breakpad, see the Breakpad page and the the page which outlines configuring Breakpad to send Linux crashes.

Next, follow the Breakpad integration steps which are found in our Breakpad integration document.
