LKCD installation

I have a probleme with the installation of LKCD, i didn’t find the folowing files :

“/sbin/lkcd_config” >> it means that the commande lkcd_config don’t exist
and the “/proc/sys/dump”

the kernel version is : 2.6.5-7.244 (SLES 9)

can somone help me plz (sorry for my english).



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.

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.


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:

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.



thank you for your help.
i have an other question, i have to build a new kernel to make the LKCD work ? because the KernTypes is missing in the /boot folder

thank you so much.
