spacewalk-abrt doesn't report kernel crash via abrt-addon-vmcore
Last modified: 2013-10-01 16:10:53 EDT
Description of problem:
spacewalk-abrt does not report kernel crashes reported via the abrt-addon-vmcore plugin.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the above packages on the client
2. Configure client system to use kdump. Ensure kdump is operational (service kdump status)
3. Crash the system (echo c > /proc/sysrq-trigger)
On the system's Software crash page (https://fqdn/rhn/systems/details/SoftwareCrashes.do?sid=<systemid>), the crash is not reported.
The kernel crash should be reported, similar to other crashes captures by abrt (such as kernel oops, python tracebacks, etc).
[*] Running 'abrt-cli list' does show the kernel crash being reported to abrt.
[*] Running 'spacewalk-abrt -v --sync' to see if the crash could be manually uploaded does not work either.
Not a limitation -- the vmcore crash dir just looks different from
what our tools expected.
Fixed in spacewalk.git master: 2979bdf31c4000f0be509daa6bacccf7fc6feacf
This bug was fixed with updated packages being released within the RHN Tools
