My app in Ubuntu crashed, but I didn't have debugsymbols...

Say you've enabled Apport on Ubuntu, and you dutifully report segfaults to Launchpad.

Well, normally they won't do you much good without debug symbols. But the bug is already filed! What do you do?


$ sudo apt-get install apport-retrace
$ sudo apport-retrace -o /tmp/trash \
> /var/crash/_usr_lib_openoffice_program_soffice.bin.1000.crash
