What is Crash Reporter Preference Pane for Mac

Whether you want to disable it or customize its behavior, the Crash Reporter can be controlled with this free Preference Pane plug-in. If you are using Mac OS X 10.3 or above, you can specify whether you want to be prompted (the default behavior), to be taken straight to the crash submission form, or simply to not be informed when an application crashes.

To the gentleman claiming the pref pane somehow affects his system performance: The Crash Reporter application is a built-in part of Mac OS X. It has a preferences file with an option instructing it what to do when it detects a crash. This is part of its functionality, though there is no GUI element that allows a user to modify it. This pref pane does not alter the crash reporter itself in any way, but rather tells it to remain silent or to immediately display the report screen. It does not attempt to kill the process because it is part of OS X. This does *not* affect system performance in any way; it merely changes a preference that previously had to be accessed via the terminal.

This application does not kill the Crash Reporter, but rather prevents it from showing up. The Crash Reporter stays as a zombie process, and it _does_ affect my system. I consider this to be worse than the maybe annoying popping up of a window, because then at least I know something is wrong.

Thank you. I always felt that the first dialog was unnecessary. it was also too easy to choose cancel when i wanted to send the report.

I agree with the poster below. If you're a Mac user from the early years, you'll appreciate that the Mac, under the hood, was a highly technical, wonderfully complex thing -- but that was NOT the point! The point was to make a machine for the rest of us! That meant making it friendly, easy to use for the majority! For all you *nix people out there who've recently come onboard, you might want to take note of that, and not be so harsh with your comments. Also, realize, one of the most difficult things to do is to take a complex idea, and make it into something simple.

I'm not sure I get the attitude of some people when a simple little front-end to what some consider a 'scary Unix thing' is posted here. Of *course* it's easy for power users to do things like this, but for the majority it is not. Looking up the command again if you want to change it can be a pain sometimes if you don't remember what you're looking for. These helpful, *FREE* utilities out of the goodness of a developer's heart are WELCOME. If you can do this stuff yourself, yay for you - you get a cookie. Biggie boy/girl!

Without being nasty, isn't this just a matter of changing the line: CRASHREPORTER=-YES- to CRASHREPORTER=-NO- in /private/etc/hostconfig ????

This preference pane for Mac OS X 10.3 installs, like everything else, painlessly. Now I don't have to click Cancel any more when an application misbehaves and crashes. Thanks to the developer!
