Package system-config-kdump not supported on Fedora-18
Last modified: 2013-10-31 07:15:05 EDT
The Package system-config-kdump does not work on Fedora. When started a dialog box pops up stating:
"Sorry, this architecture does not currently support kdump"
Also there is not kernel-kdump package available for Fedora-18.
Please refer to the attached screenshot.

I see that system-config-kdump/src/system-config-kdump.py has
UNSUPPORTED_ARCHES = ("ppc", "s390", "s390x", "i386", "i586").
I guess the error messages may be due to the following list of unsupported architectures.

We are already aware of this. The question is "WHY" the s390* platform has chosen to be unsupported for taking kdump? Observing the above line, we can say that system-config-kdump tools is forbidden on any common desktop arches (system p, z, x), and why?
If you figure out this has something to do with the kernel, let us know. As for now, this should go against the system-config-kdump package.
Thanks for the report.
Removing s390* from unsupported list could probably solve this.

version of system-config-kdump: system-config-kdump-2.0.10
the bug is still present in system-config-kdump-2.0.11-1.fc19, it seems the patch for enabling s390x support was lost, dropped from the package and not integrated into upstream git
