Re: Help with crashdump

From: Matthew Dillon <dillon@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

:I expected something to happen when I rebooted with the old kernel,
:but there was no message about finding a crashdump, and nothing in
:/var/crash.  I did get a message about / not being properly
:dismounted and a successful fsck, but that's all.
:I have dumpdev="/dev/ad1s5b" in /etc/rc.conf and that really is my
:swap partition.
:I must be forgetting something important -- but what?

    Is your userland synchronized with your kernel?  and old savecore might not
    work properly with a new kernel.

    Is your /var/crash large enough to hold a memory dump? (at least as much free
    space as physical memory ?)  If not , free up some space or making /var/crash
    a symlink to somewhere that does have enough space, and rerun the savecore
    If your system hasn't used any swap yet since the last reboot.

	savecore /var/crash
