Description Johan Walles 2002-06-28 03:46:27 EDT

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020412

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" ("") 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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Wait for the kernel to crash with a blank screen.
2. Reboot.

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.

Additional info:
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
*definitely* correct.
