Subject: [PATCH] kernel-shark: kernel-shark: Avoid a duplicate error message from capture
Date: Wed, 10 Jul 2019 18:39:06 +0300
Message-ID: <> (raw)

If the capture process finishes with an error the _captureError() slot
will print an error message. We do not need to print identical message
in _captureFinished().

However, we have to keep in mind that the process that we started is
"pkexec" and the capture dialog is a child process of "pkexec". So if
the capture dialog failed to start or crashed the "pkexec" process
itself will have a normal exit, however its return value will be
different from 0 (it will just pass the return value of the capture
dialog executable). In this case _captureError() is not triggered,
but we still want to see an error message.
