Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:39 EST
Description of problem:
kexec fails because it cannot allocate memory. Consequently, kdump service
always fails to start up.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run "service kdump start" or just run "kexec <options> <args>"
kexec fails with the following error.
Cannot malloc 984921900322816 bytes: Cannot allocate memory
kexec succeeds, and kdump service starts up.
Jarod or Akira, Can you provide me with access information to the SGI machine
(or any sufficiently large ia64 box), so that I can debug this please?
never mind, jarod already got this fixed in -153.el5
