From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050414

Description of problem:
the module "netdump" is not found
and netconsole is started with wrong parameter

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.edit /etc/sysconfig/netdump
2./etc/init.d/netdump start

Actual Results:  - the module netdump is not found
- netconsole is loaded with wrong parameters

Additional info:

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?
Comment 2 Jeffrey Moyer 2005-05-25 12:46:31 EDT
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
incorporate them.

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.
Comment 4 Warren Togami 2006-03-06 10:38:01 EST
What is the status of this?
Comment 5 Jeffrey Moyer 2006-03-06 13:36:09 EST
service netdump start succeeds.  netconsole appears to function.  netdump fails
on the one system I tried (3com card, 3c59x driver).
Comment 6 Warren Togami 2006-03-06 17:32:38 EST
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.
