Comment 4 Marty Wesley 2005-05-26 06:53:40 UTC
PM ACK for U2.

Comment 5 Tim Burke 2005-05-27 00:05:57 UTC
Status update from Nagahama-san:

Currently Tachino-san is working on making prototype.
30% done. That is diskdumputils modification only. 

Comment 8 Nobuhiro Tachino 2005-06-27 20:18:13 UTC
I want to drop this feature for RHEL4U2 because this has low priority and I have
other more important things which should be done. Please drop this from CanFix list.

Comment 9 Tim Burke 2005-07-07 21:04:54 UTC
Status update from Tachino-san indicates that this one won't be completed in
time for RHEL4 U2.   So I am taking it off the U2 canfix list and moving it over
to the U3 proposed list.

Comment 11 Nobuhiro Tachino 2005-10-25 13:22:02 UTC
I changed the component to diskdumputils because This feature does not require
kernel change.

Comment 13 Dave Anderson 2005-11-28 16:49:31 UTC
Feature applied in RHEL4 version diskdumputils-1.2.1-2.

Comment 15 Jeff Needle 2006-02-09 16:15:14 UTC
Akira-san, can you please provide verification that diskdumputils-1.2.1-2, as
referenced in RHEA-2006:066-03, addresses this bugzilla to your satisfaction and
that your quality testing was successful?

Comment 16 Akira Imamura 2006-02-10 16:04:21 UTC
