Description Lucio Correia 2007-08-01 17:51:38 UTC
Please update kexec-tools package version with patches from kexec-tools-testing.

Comment 1 Neil Horman 2007-08-01 18:26:53 UTC
Note: This is in response to a request to pull the cell/ps3 patches into the F7
build.  Since there is only a small diff beyond F7 and testing, I'm just pulling
the whole thing.

Comment 2 Neil Horman 2007-08-01 18:49:23 UTC
fixed in -71.fc7

Comment 3 Frederico Recsky 2007-08-22 17:20:45 UTC

Kexec tools at Cell/B.E. still doesn't work.
I think that Lucio wants the update of version of source code. Kexec-tools
doesn't have a release update since a long time. To be functional in ppc64 and
Cell/B.E. machines it must be the testing version, available at:


Also this have important updates to x86 platform.


Comment 4 Neil Horman 2007-08-22 17:39:25 UTC
Thats not what you asked for.  what we discussed was moving the patches that
were in fedora-testing into the F7 release.  If you want an upstream rebase open
a new bug requesting that.  But I'm not going to be willing to rebase until F8
at the moment.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 7 is nearing the end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 7. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '7'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 7's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 7 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. If possible, it is recommended that you try the newest available Fedora distribution to see if your bug still exists.

Please read the Release Notes for the newest Fedora distribution to make sure it will meet your needs:

The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping

Comment 6 Bug Zapper 2008-06-17 02:03:53 UTC
Fedora 7 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on June 13, 2008. 
Fedora 7 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not 
receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we 
are closing this bug. 

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version 
of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
