Subject: [ PATCH ] fix to documentation for kexec
Date: Thu, 1 Feb 2007 10:19:55 -0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20070201181955.GE5825@shell0.pdx.osdl.net> (raw)

Hello,

I've noticed that the boot options are not correct for in 
the documentation for kdump. The "init" keyword is not 
necessary, and causes a kernel panic when booting with an 
initrd on Fedora 5.

Thanks;
Judith Lebzelter
