Description of problem:
Since our RHAS2.1 keeps falling over (bug 67608) it would be helpful if you
could add something like "Linux Kernel Crash Dumps" ("http://lkcd.sf.net") to
your distro(s). That would enable us (and others) to file kernel bugs with more
information than just "it crashed".
Preferrably you should add a script that generates some kind of text file (with
a list of relevant modules, backtraces and whatever other information you feel
important) that can be attached to the bug report.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Wait for the kernel to crash with a blank screen.
Actual Results: -
Expected Results: Some kind of kernel crash dump information should appear
under /var/log or wherever. Possibly, a text file with that information should
be e-mailed to root as well.
Marked priority "high" as it is often impossible to report kernel crashes in any
helpful way. I have no idea whether LKCD is technically sound, but the idea is
Just discovered netdump. Will try to get it working.
