Description Josef Bacik 2007-02-16 19:44:02 UTC
When using an upstream kernel I couldn't get kdump to start with the RHEL5 kexec-tools, but it would start with the F7 kexec-tools. The patch that fixed this is kexec-tools-1.101-relocatable-bzimage.patch in the F7 package. I built and tested the RHEL5 package with that patch and it worked fine with both the upstream and RHEL5 kernels.
Comment 1 Josef Bacik 2007-02-16 20:11:13 UTC
Created attachment 148236 [details] massaged patch that applies to the rhel5 package.
Comment 2 Neil Horman 2007-02-20 16:54:40 UTC
ixed in -167.el5. I rediffed the version you uploaded since this patch really belongs at the start of the series, rather than at the end, but thanks for all the effort josef. you should be able to use upstream kernels with RHEL5's kdump now.
