Description Terje Rosten 2005-08-31 11:13:47 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; nb-NO; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050720 Fedora/1.0.6-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.6

Description of problem:
The init script in the diskdumputils package, wants to load the kernel module scsi_dump. However this module is not present in the kernel package: 

$ rpm -ql kernel-smp-2.6.12-1.1398_FC4 | grep scsi_dump

However the diskdump module is included:

$ rpm -ql kernel-smp-2.6.12-1.1398_FC4 | grep diskdump 

I see from the changelog in the kernel package that netdump is broken:

* Thu Apr 07 2005 Dave Jones <davej@redhat.com>
- 2.6.12rc2
  - netdump/netconsole currently broken.

Is this still the case and does this mean that diskdump/scsi_dump is broken 

(I used the diskdumputils as component, however maybe the kernel component is more correct).  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
diskdumputils-1.1.9-2 kernel-smp-2.6.12-1.1398_FC4

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Set up diskdump and try to start the diskdump service:

$ service diskdump start

Actual Results:  diskdump is not activated.

Expected Results:  diskdump  is activated.

This is not a bug. Fedora 4 kernel does not have scsi_dump module because
diskdump is not supported on Fedora 4.
