latest kernel breaks netdump
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:14:41 EST
Description of problem:
The latest kernel breaks netdump, as it is is misisng netdump.ko.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Update to 2.6.9-1.724_FC3
2. service netdump start
initializing netdump FATAL: Module netdump not found.
initializing netconsole FATAL: Error inserting netconsole
The netdump module also seems to be missing from 2.6.10-1.727_FC3
Still broken in 2.6.10-1.737_FC3
I remember reading in the kernel changelogs that it had been taken out in
preperation of being replaced with a new kexec system...
Hmm just found this:

Surely this is a mistake to remove it from the FC3 kernel though
Given that they dropped 4g4g (and seeing how that affected some people
severely), who knows if it was intentional or a mistake.
it was intentional, as it rejected once I rebased and various other
patches got dropped. rediffing it and getting it back into fc2/fc3 is
on my todo list, though there are higher priority things right now.
fixed in cvs, will be in the next build.
