fstyp's hardcoded into mkdumprd
Last modified: 2008-08-26 06:45:44 EDT
Description of problem:
kdump kernel fails to boot if root fstyp not ext2, ext3 or minix.
Root cause is mkdumprd; it hardcodes ext2, ext3 & minix into the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 9 - kexec-tools-1.102pre-8.fc9.x86_64
I my case, fstyp of root file system was reiserfs.
Steps to Reproduce
Perhaps the mkdumprd script could be enhanced to extract fstyp from fstab ?
kdump only supports root filesystems that are ext2/3 or minix. If you have a root filesystem that is not one of those types, then you need to select an alternate dump target (see kdump.conf)
