Fri Jan 23 16:46:36 CET 2009 - bwalle@suse.de

- Update to 0.8.1
  o Fix invalid syntax in CMakeLists.txt.
  o Fix manpage, the command is called read_ikconfig and not
    print_ikconfig (bnc #468782).
  o Remove the documentation about the non-working network
    configuration in Xen since that has been fixed meanwhile.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Thu Dec 11 11:11:38 CET 2008 - bwalle@suse.de

- Add BuildIgnore for 'fop' which breaks the Java dependency
  that is not needed for asciidoc generating just manual pages
  (improve build speed).

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Wed Dec 03 20:09:12 CET 2008 - bwalle@suse.de

- Update to 0.7.4
  o Don't update bootloader in mkdumprd(8).
- Don't build on s390, s390x and ppc because there is no kdump
  on that architectures.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Mon Nov 24 22:48:56 CET 2008 - bwalle@suse.de

- Update to 0.7.3
  o Document kdump problems on Xen.

    without arguments instead of defaulting to the running kernel.
  o Parse VMCOREINFO_XEN when present with 'read_vmcoreinfo'.
  o Pass the kernel release of the crashed kernel via command line
    in case of Xen.
  o Improve error handling when no crash kernel release is
    available when saving the dump.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Fri Nov 21 13:46:57 CET 2008 - bwalle@suse.de

- Update to 0.7.2
  o Don't use the FQDN but only the hostname to avoid DNS lookups
    and errors on wrongly configured systems (bnc#442830).
  o Fix empty KDUMP_SAVEDIR line when replacing the symbolic link
    with the absolute path.
  o Don't set sysctl kernel.unknown_nmi_panic=1 by default
    (bnc#388736).
  o Mention kernel.panic_on_unrecovered_nmi in the kdump(7)
    manpage.

- Only regenerate the initrd once after update. But make sure that
  it always gets regenerated.
- Update to 0.7.0
  o Add read_ikconfig command.
  o Add find_kernel command in kdumptool, replacing the find code
    in the init script. Needed to prefer the default kernel even
    if the maxcpus kernel (or a realtime kernel) is currently
    booted (bnc#444658).
  o Implement KDUMP_VERBOSE = 16 to debug kdump find_kernel.
  o Make boot.kdump dependent on boot.localnet to have a correct
    hostname (bnc#442830).
  o Fix stripping of the crashkernel command line again
    (bnc#444687).
  o Don't include test cases in the release tarball. They are
    very incomplete and contain too huge test data.
  o Honor TMPDIR and set that to disk space instead of the ramdisk
    when saving the dump in the initrd.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Thu Nov 13 12:03:51 CET 2008 - bwalle@suse.de

- Update to 0.6.7

    kernel, not only parts of them, also when the extended
    crashkernel syntax has been used.

Wed Nov 12 10:04:28 CET 2008 - bwalle@suse.de

- Update to 0.6.6
  o Fix wrong path when modifying the /etc/sysconfig/kdump file
    when creating the kdump initrd.
  o Prepend a space before MAKEDUMPFILE_OPTIONS so that there's
    always a space between command and the first argument.
  o Fix finding of the kernel image (/boot/vmlinuz) with rootdir.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Tue Nov 11 21:38:24 CET 2008 - bwalle@suse.de

    debug file resides in GLOBALDEBUGDIR/EXECDIR/DEBUGFILE
    (bnc#443828).

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Tue Nov 11 15:50:24 CET 2008 - bwalle@suse.de

    symlinks are used (bnc#438218)
  o Assume a default terminal size of 80x25 (for printing the
    horizontal line)
  o Check the exit status of kdumptool
  o Implement support for resolving symbolic links inside a root
    directory (--root=...) when saving the dump. (bnc#431492)
  o Don't print a (red) info message that email failed if both
    KDUMP_SMTP_SERVER and KDUMP_NOTIFICATION_TO are empty.
  o If KDUMP_SAVEDIR points to a local file, resolve symlinks when
    creating the initrd because in theory the file system that
    contains parts of the symlinks is not mounted in initrd.
  o Fix KDUMP_NETCONFIG=auto by calling mkinitrd with right
    parameters.
  o Create core dumps in the initrd when kdumptool crashes.
  o Fix std::logic_error in Email::send() that caused kdumptool to
    terminate unexpectedly.
  o Set the hostname of the SMTP session based on the --fqdn
    parameter.
  o Don't report a failure in the email when there is no one.
