Description of problem:
the module "netdump" is not found
and netconsole is started with wrong parameter
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: - the module netdump is not found
- netconsole is loaded with wrong parameters
netconsole is started in /etc/init.d/netdump
with "modprobe netconsole netlog=..."
instead of "modprobe netconsole netconsole=...".
This is the same in FC3
Are we missing kernel options here?
Davej dropped the netdump/netconsole kernel patches since they didn't apply w/o
fuzz. I've since refactored the patches (last night), and hopefully dave will
There is another issue, though, in that since the options passing differs
between RHEL and fedora, more logic may need to be put into the init script.
I'll test once I get a good kernel build (last one for me didn't boot).
Too late for FC4. This must go out in an update.
What is the status of this?
service netdump start succeeds. netconsole appears to function. netdump fails
on the one system I tried (3com card, 3c59x driver).
Both netconsole and netdump fail on many specific drivers under various
conditions. This is nothing new, and they are really driver problems. Closing
this UPSTREAM. Might be best to file individual bugs against each driver/card
combination that fails with netconsole or netdump.
