The size of the vmcore will be the RAM SIZE minus the area reserved for the dump capture kernel(via the the crashkernel= option) Rachita > > > Thanks in advance, > Seetharam > > ____________________________________________________________ > FREE 3D MARINE AQUARIUM SCREENSAVER - Watch dolphins, sharks & orcas on your desktop! > Check it out at http://www.inbox.com/marineaquarium > > _______________________________________________ > fastboot mailing list > fastboot@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx > https://lists.linux-foundation.org/mailman/listinfo/fastboot _______________________________________________ fastboot mailing list fastboot@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx https://lists.linux-foundation.org/mailman/listinfo/fastboot
