Description of problem:
Request for RedHat to provide support for both kernel and user components of a
post-mortem debugger to be embedded into RedHat 2.1 Advanced Server
This debugger would be enabled by default on the installed kernel images,
thereby not requiring a kernel reconfiguration and rebuild by customers to
obtain this feature.
SuSE has integrated SGI/IBM Linux Kernel Crash Dump (LKCD) facility in their
SLES 8 release. See http://lkcd.sourceforge.net/.
Mission Critical Linux also has a good post-mortem linux kernel crash dump
facility in their mcore product. See http://oss.mclx.com/projects/mcore/.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
There currently is no post-mortem debugger capability within RH 2.1 AS.
what's wrong with netdump that we include ?
Has been in NEEDINFO for years. Closing.
