Description of problem:
It seems related to bug 572569: /sbin/mkdumprd tries to use nash to build
initramfs, but nash is no longer available.
# service kdump restart
Stopping kdump: [ OK ]
Detected /etc/kdump.conf or /boot/vmlinuz-18.104.22.168-83.fc14.x86_64 change
WARNING: using /root for temporary files
/sbin/mkdumprd: line 951: nash: command not found
Starting kdump: [ OK ]
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make a change to /etc/kdump.conf to trigger a rebuild of initramfs
2. service kdump restart
Apparently initrd for crash kernel is generated, but I cannot tell
if it might fail with some dm configuration. According to comment on
line 1477 of /sbin/mkdumprd:
# nash should do lvm probing for us and write its own configs.
I suppose this fails, at least.
No warnings (and no use of nash into the script).
yeah, it should work just fine, that whole emitdms function that spawns that error no longer needs to be there, and does nothing. I'll remove it from f14 and rawhide shortly.
