Description Martin Wilck 2011-08-05 12:04:07 UTC
Description of problem:
carshkernel=auto is deprecated in RHEL6.1 according to release notes. Yet system-config-kdump defaults to this setting, and unless explicitly changed by the user, will apply it to /boot/grub/grub.conf even if the existing entries specify crashkernel=<X>M

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
start system-config-kdump, keep memory settings at default, save configuration
Actual results:
crashkernel=<X>M is changed to crashkernel=auto in /boot/grub/grub.conf

Expected results:
The user is informed that crashkernel=auto is deprecated, and the default is changed.

Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2011-08-05 12:28:07 UTC
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated
in the current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to
address this request at this time. Red Hat invites you to
ask your support representative to propose this request, if
appropriate and relevant, in the next release of Red Hat
Enterprise Linux. If you would like it considered as an
exception in the current release, please ask your support
