How to test?
If you do not wish to alter your computer's existing software, you may download a non-destructive live image for your architecture. Tips on using a live image are available at FedoraLiveCD. Live images can be found here. The "Desktop" image is preferred.
Please perform as many of the test cases below as you can, and fill out the results table at the bottom of the page:
If you have problems with any of the tests, report a bug to Bugzilla usually for the system-config-kdump. If you are unsure about exactly how to file the report or what other information to include, just ask on IRC and we will help you. Once you have completed the tests, add your results to the Results table below, following the example results from the first line as a template. The first column should be your name with a link to your User page in the Wiki if you have one, and the second should be a link to the four required configuration files from your system as shown in the 'Sample User' entry. For each test case, use the result template to enter your result, as shown in the example result line.
