Hi all,

I have a system running 2.6.18-238.12.1.el5 kernel.
The kexec version is kexec-tools-1.102pre-126.el5_6.6.

The kernel was booted OK. Then it ran /etc/init.d/kdump
and a new kdump initrd image was created.
A kernel crash was triggered. The kdump kernel was booted
alright. However, it failed to boot when it tried to boot
back the regular kernel (now with the kdump initrd image
specified in the menu.lst.)

Has anyone else seen this problem?
