Description of problem:
When starting system-config-kdump, I get errors, and the command won't start.
The errors are displayed in an attachment.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start system-config-kdump
system-config-kdump opens an error window, but no configuration window.
system-config-kdump doesn't display any errors, and starts configuration window.
I recently upgraded my system from F11 to F12. 6 months ago I upgraded it from F10 to F11, so It hasn't been reinstalled since F10.
This is similar to bug 524532, but the output is slightly different.
Thanks for the report.
Can you please post a content of grub.conf (or any other bootloaders conf file)?
