[RHEL4-U3][Diskdump] doesn't work with sym53cxx_2
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:15 EST
Description of problem:
Diskdump doesn't work with sym53cxx on i386.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Everytime
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Diskdump
Actual results: Diskdump hangs.
Expected results: Disdump works normally.
The modification will be done by Fujitsu team.
Status meeting w/ Fujitsu crew - this is being worked by Fujitsu Japan. IBM did
the initial diskdump support, but it only works on PPC. So the Fujitsu team is
working to get this operational on other architectures.
A note to the Fujitsu team - please send email@example.com an email indicating
which architectures this driver works on for diskdump support. This information
will then be incorporated into an exernal table which itemizes supported drivers.
The target is changed to RHEL4-U2.
With RHEL4U3 kernel, I could not reproduce this bug. I tested sym53cxx diskdump
on ia64, i386 and x86_64, but it works on all machines. The bug actually existed
on RHEL GA kernel and it could be produced on my machine, but it does not exist
on the current kernel anymore. So I think this should be closed as WORKSFORME.
I happened to close the bz by mistake. I reopen this.
