well after two day's experimenting ,a lot of reboots ,finally
Whit the B-release Fc1O ,there where "some" troubles ,witch by following the test forums etc.
a lot of experiments ,and patience ,most of them I had resolved .
However ,one problem was persistent ,by each reboot I saw " starting Kdump : Failed .
Because ,as before ,some of the problems where related to Selinux ,I have rebooted in permissive mode
,to no avail .
Then I fschk'ed the boot partition ,no failures ,not happy
Manually invoking didn't gave salvage to :
service kdump start mislukt (failed)
There are no log's or other means to find some clues ,and the comment "failed" doesn't help.
Because I want to join the test league ,I needed to install my own PC in good order ,
so I didn't retreat ,instead installed de kerneldebug packages .
(wanted to do anyhow ,but then : Kdump has to work properly !)
As in > /usr/share/doc/kexec-tools-2.0.0/kexec-kdump-howto.txt< ( Good Info ) ,I proceeded :
crash x86_64 4.0-7 fedora 1.7 M
kernel-debuginfo x86_64 2.6.29-0.45.rc2.git1.fc11 rawhide-debuginfo 290 M
Installing for dependencies:
kernel-debuginfo-common x86_64 2.6.29-0.45.rc2.git1.fc11 rawhide-debuginfo 35 M
Rebooted after the configurations (reserve 128M@16 etc.) ,and ... noppes ,no good (Expected)
Then only "intuitive" handling would help.
I deleted initrmdsk*.dump in boot , manually invoked : service kdump start ... failed.
A yum reinstall kexec-tools and reboot ,,, Bingooo !
To be honest ,I don' t now why the original install didn't worked ,but the problem is Solved .
