Currently, when installing the linux-crashdump meta-package in order to enable
kernel crash dump collection, the functionality is not enabled by default.
While a reboot is mandatory to enable the crashkernel= kernel parameter, I would
like to suggest to enable the kdump functionality by default when the package is
A prompt should be displayed to allow for the user to override the "default =
Yes" if needed. This will not be the only user interaction when installing the
meta-package, as kexec-tools already prompts for the type of boot.
Any comment or suggestion ?
