Generating A Diagnostics File

From Snakeoil OS Reference
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Things do not always goes to plan. Snakeoil OS Is using a very customised Linux Kernel and while this is the reason for the excellent sound quality, the kernel (and underlying Operating System itself) may not behave well in your computer system.

When this happens you can use the built in system to generate a diagnostics file, to be sent to the Snakeoil Squad for troubleshooting purposes.

This diagnostics file will include things like:

  • System log
  • Snakeoil log
  • USB device information
  • Network configuration
  • Running processes
  • Disk information
  • Audio device information
  • and more

While not entirely exhaustive, the file should provide the necessary information for us to understand the state of your computer.
