Comment 4 Radek Novacek 2010-05-14 11:04:19 EDT
I'm not able to reproduce the bug with step from comment #1. But I reproduced similar issue when I manually changed command line options on Expert settings card. I changed from "crashkernel=192M" to "crashkernel=aa192M" and change focus to another widget, then the error appears in terminal (no crash). 

How should s-c-kdump react on that? Error message? Silently change that to some valid value? Something else?
Comment 5 Roman Rakus 2010-05-19 11:05:00 EDT
Possible values are
1) auto
2) X@Y
3) X

where auto is string
X is numeric value with optional M suffix
Y is optional value with optional M suffix

I will add check for the above possibilities.

Should be fixed in system-config-kdump-
