Description CAI Qian 2010-06-13 00:07:20 EDT
Description of problem:
Starting netdump daemon on RHEL3.9 guest with virtio NIC under RHEL6 host, giving errors,

# service  netdump restart
initializing netdump netlog: eth0's network driver does not implement netlogging yet, aborting.
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
      You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.21-63.ELsmp/kernel/drivers/net/netconsole.o: init_module: Operation not permitted
/lib/modules/2.4.21-63.ELsmp/kernel/drivers/net/netconsole.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.21-63.ELsmp/kernel/drivers/net/netconsole.o failed
