Re: Help with crashdump
: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
: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.
