Description Stefan Assmann 2010-05-07 10:55:27 UTC
Description of problem:
kdump seems to be enabled by default in RHEL6. After the installation I see the following in the boot messages:
no kdump initial ramdisk found. [WARNING]
Rebuilding /boot/initrd-2.6.32-23.el6.x86_64kdump.img
Starting kdump: [FAILED]

However kdump isn't even configured properly. There's no kernel commandline parameter specified. Starting system-config-kdump also failed with "This system does not have enough memory for kdump to be viable."

System has 512MB, shouldn't that be enough to run kdump?

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