Description Guy Streeter 2007-05-30 19:23:01 UTC
The "crash" kernel module is needed in order for the crash program to work on a
live system with more than 896MB memory.
We need CONFIG_CRASH=m in all our configs.

Comment 1 Guy Streeter 2007-05-30 19:53:00 UTC
It's worse than just the CONFIG setting. The crash driver is a RHEL5 add-on.

Comment 2 Guy Streeter 2007-05-30 20:42:39 UTC
I think this doesn't affect x86_64, at least not at the same low memory size.
It it really a problem for i686.

Comment 3 Guy Streeter 2007-06-08 16:38:02 UTC
x86_64 doesn't have the memory limit, so we only need the /dev/crash driver for

Comment 4 Guy Streeter 2007-06-19 18:41:35 UTC
I've done my part on this one. It's up to Clark now.

Comment 5 Guy Streeter 2007-06-19 20:12:00 UTC
Created attachment 157414 [details]

you need to apply this patch, and set CONFIG_CRASH=m on i686 and not set it on

Comment 6 Clark Williams 2007-06-20 16:18:09 UTC
This will go into next release (>= 2.6.21-32)
