Error message at the time of system boot


At the time of my system boot, I find a message which is:
memory for crash kernel not within permissible range....

Why so ??
I have RHEL 5.3 on my system.

It would be difficult at best for anyone to answer your question very well with so little information. However, I googled your error message and the best info I found is at:

http://www.houseoflinux.com/debates/...missible-range

which shows it to be a warning, not really an error. I assume your machine actually does boot up and you are just seeing what looks like an error but is really just warning you that if there really were a crash during boot up that the system would not be able to kdump anything for someone to diagnose.

As above, it's just a warning that it's not setup to automatically handle crash dumps. For 99% of users, especially home users, you wouldn't use that feature anyway.
