I need to attach a log file to a question I'm going to ask on Ask Ubuntu. Is this allowed by the site rules and if yes, how to do it?

Absolutely,

If you have a long log-file, use something like the Ubuntu Pastebin and link it up in your question.

This makes the question far easier to read, and neat and tidy questions always have a better chance of getting answered quickly.

  • Hi, thanks. Ubuntu Pastebin doesn't support uploads. My file is > 400kb and I don't want to copy/paste the content manually inside a textarea! I'll look for an alternative. – Paolo Jun 9 '11 at 20:01

    @Guandalino - a log file that large isn't going to help anyone only copy the information that pertains to your issue. – Marco Ceppi Jun 9 '11 at 20:39

    Agreed. That's far too long. The only point of posting a log file is if you expect somebody to read it. Nobody is going to trawl through something that big. – Oli Jun 9 '11 at 22:19
