Description Dan Horák 2012-04-18 13:09:23 UTC
/etc/zipl.conf must be labelled as boot_t (same as grub or yaboot config files) otherwise system-config-kdump won't work on s390x, see bug #813337

proposed update

The kexec-tool package contains a local policy file that talks about boot_t, but I don't know if or how it is used. There seems to be a support for labelling bootloader files in modules/admin/bootloader.fc so I guess zipl support should be modelled after grub, lilo or yaboot.

Comment 3 Miroslav Grepl 2012-04-20 13:58:32 UTC
I added the patch to Fedora.
