Red Hat Product Errata RHBA-2008:0396 normal SHIPPED_LIVE system-config-kdump bug fix update 2008-05-19 23:09:13 UTC

Description David Lehman 2007-08-20 20:21:18 UTC
Description of problem:
There no UI for configuration of or even pass-through handling for new config
options "link_delay", "kdump_post", "extra_bins", "extra_modules", or new
default action "halt". At a minimum s-c-kdump should preserve the values it
finds for these options and not display any error messages. A more complete fix
would be the addition of an "Advanced Options" dialog to handle configuration of
these options as well as "core_collector" (and perhaps "path").

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. populate /etc/kdump.conf with the new directives/options described above
2. run system-config-kdump
Actual results:
Probably an error message stating that filesystem type $OPTION_NAME is not

Expected results:
Either quiet preservation of the settings or some UI for their manipulation.

Comment 4 David Lehman 2008-01-18 19:43:38 UTC
I am going to add the halt default action, since it is trivial to do so. As for
the others, I am just adding code to preserve unknown options so we don't do any

Fix will be in system-config-kdump-1.0.13-1.el5.
