Description Heather Conway 2003-02-25 22:06:09 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0) 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 distribution. 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): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: There currently is no post-mortem debugger capability within RH 2.1 AS. Additional info:
