Doc Text:
Feature: mkdumprd: improve error message when e2fsprogs is missing Reason: fsck.ext2/3/4 is used to check Linux ext2/3/4 file system, and they are contained in package e2fsprogs. So if e2fsprogs is not installed, the mkdumprd fail and report error message: "/etc/kdump.conf: Unsupported type ext4" With thie error message, user maybe still don't know what's wrong with ext2/3/4. Result (if any): Improve the error message to notice user explicitly. Then thing will be easier for user's operation.
