Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 589937
kdump is enabled by default but not configured
Last modified: 2010-05-07 12:35:39 EDT
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]
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?
