4.107. system-config-kdump

Updated system-config-kdump packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The system-config-kdump tool is a graphical utility used to configure kernel crash dumping via the kdump and kexec utilities.

Bug Fix

Previously, the system-config-kdump utility did not allow users to configure the kdump utility to store kernel dumps as a file on the ext4 file system. This update provides the "ext4" option to the "Edit location -> Select location type" setting, thus fixing this bug.
Users of system-config-kdump are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
