Subject: Kernel panic/exception dump support in 2.5?


It would really be nice if I could capture kernel exceptions/and oopsies
on a file, or over a network connection. Redirecting console=lp0 to
printer doesnt really let me paste dumps to LKML =)

Any solutions? Will we have a way to properly dump kernel failures
(exceptions/oopies) somewhere?

The netdump patch can do this, including the actual kernel image

Is there a 2.5 patch floating around?

I hear mention of netdump and netconsole now and again... is anyone
moving them towards the mainline kernel? is there a stable URL?

Curious,

Jeff

Is this something different from netconsole?
Where can I find netdump?

Yes, I know about netconsole; just confused by the netdump name.

Thanks.
