    Hi,

    Please verify that you have installed the lkcdutils package. If you want to dump the kernel crash to a network server, youi will also need the lkcdutils-netdump-server package.

    Find details here:

    and

    Hi,
    thank you for your response.
    I have already saw the too web sites, but the probleme is in the installation not in configuration, and i don't need the netdump.
    If I have to reinstall the LKCD it means I have to patch the kernel (because the lkcdutils was installed in the server), and I didn't find the patch for my version of kernel (2.6.5-7.244) so please help me to resolve the probleme.
    thank you so much.

    Hi,

    Let's see. If your kernel is 2.6.5-7.244, you are likely using SLES 9 SP3.
    For that specific release, the corresponding lkcdutils package is
    version 4.2, release 193.68.
    The package name is: lkcdutils-4.2-193.68.i586.rpm.

    All the files you seem to be missing are contained in that package.

    Thus, double check you have it in place:

    # rpm -qa | grep lkcdutils

    If you see an output ressembling this, it is installed:
    lkcdutils-4.2

    By the way, there is no need to patch the kernel to make it work.
    Just install lkcdutils from the on-line respositories or from the CD1 in the official SLES 9 SP3 disk set.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards.
