Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 471133
CONFIG_CRASH should not be set for s390x
Last modified: 2009-03-13 12:57:31 EDT
Description of problem:
Compilation error with CONFIG_CRASH set on s390x. Shouldn't be set on this arch anyway.
I don't fully grasp how this value makes its way into .config, but attaching my hack/patch for reference.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

what's the compilation error ?
afaik, there's no reason that this shouldn't work on s390. It's just a feature subset of /dev/mem

Compile error during rpmbuild
huh, I thought we used to build this on earlier RHELs. Looks like I was mistaken.
I committed a similar patch to yours (it goes in config-s390x instead, which overrides the setting in config-generic)
*** Bug 485144 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
this issue isn't fixed in kernel-2.6.29-0.99.rc4.git1.fc11.src.rpm, can you take
a look at it again, please ? We need to build a s390x kernel for F-11 when we branch for RHEL6. Bonus points if the kernel even boots ;-)
$ grep CRASH configs/*s390*
# CONFIG_CRASH is not set
I killed this driver completely. Crash should be able to use the generic upstream drivers in current Fedora.
