10.3: Disable the 'Unexpectedly Quit' dialog box
Authored by: jedik on Dec 12, '03 06:12:58PM

Actually, one can disable CrashReporter completely. In the Terminal (CLI), do:

1) cd /etc
2) sudo pico hostconfig
3) type your administrator password
4) Look for "CRASHREPORTER=-YES-" and replace with "CRASHREPORTER=-NO-"
5) Press CNTRL+X then "y" and finally RETURN
6) restart you Mac

PS -> it is an important system file. Only does this if you feel totally confident about doing it.

I did it just after I installer Panther, sometime ago. I didn't notice any side affects. I have just thought about it today, when I read the above hint. ;)

Is it possible to keep the unexpectedly quit message but get rid of the bug submission dialog (same as Jaguar)?
