I have a machine here that crashes during the week-end. I would like to
change it, but we have no available hardware for the moment.
The problem is that it doesn't want to reboot after crash, although I set
ddb.panic=0 in /etc/sysctl.conf
I also have compiled a kernel without DDB, but it wont reboot.
Even a reboot -d doesn't dump anything.(maybe it's a ide controler or hard
The machine is a Digital celebris gl 6200, which include a pentium pro and
has a 6 GB ide Hard Drive.
The system is OBSD 2.9, kernel recompiled with all errata
Nothing else than IPF, sshd and snort run on the system.
I know I should send some more info about the crash, but I'd like to check
this out myself first.
In the crash(8) manpage, it is said that:
"(...), then the system dumps the contents of physical memory onto a mass
storage peripheral device. The particular device used is determined by
the `dumps on' directive in the config(8) file used to build the kernel."
I haven't found that "dumps on" directive, and would like to know its
syntax. recompiling a kernel is not a problem, as long as you know how to
configure the config file.
Can anyone help ?
Thanks in advance
