[Bug 1010854] Re: [HP EliteBook 8540p] linux-crashdump not producing coredump nor rebooting


Christoph Paasch, given the problem is a regression going from Oneiric
to Precise, it wouldn't hurt to bisect the kernel via
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/KernelBisection to shed more light on the
issue. Be careful as the proprietary nvidia drivers many not work out
using the mainline, or previous Ubuntu kernels.

  [HP EliteBook 8540p] linux-crashdump not producing coredump nor

Status in “linux-meta” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Since Ubuntu Precise, linux-crashdump isn't working anymore for me. When I trigger a crash with:
  echo 'c' > /proc/sysrq-trigger

  the machine freezes. I see the disk-light blinking for a short time.
  But then, the host does not reboot automatically, and no dump-file is
  in /var/crash. With Oneiric everything worked as expected.
