Not having symbols in nightly builds makes it difficult to debug hard to reproduce crashes or to verify if a particular crash in a nightly build has been fixed. I suggest we add MOZ_DEBUG_SYMBOLS to the trunk permanently and to branch nightly builds during the period prior to beta so that useful stacks can be captured.
um, i thought talkback worked by getting symbols
(In reply to comment #1) > um, i thought talkback worked by getting symbols > as far as I know, talkback associates addresses with the symbols that are uploaded to the talkback servers. I am talking about building and distributing the nightly builds so that when you attach a debugger to a crash you get a stack with the function names and line numbers.
those are the same symbols, and this is a duplicate.
You thinking of bug 320490?
Bug 320490 only applies to windows systems, not Linux. A solution for Linux systems is still needed.
