Does Fedora supports kdump ? (especially F8)


From the release notes, it seems like it should be available, however, I don't see any separate kernel-kdump kernels since FC6, with the latest being:
  kernel-kdump-2.6.20-1.2962.fc6.i686.rpm   25-Jun-2007

Following the kernel spec:


For F8:
Revision 1.78  - (view) (download) (annotate) - [select for diffs]
Fri Aug 10 06:32:43 2007 UTC (4 months, 3 weeks ago) by roland
spec fix for kdump kernel

For F7:
Revision 1.3214  - (view) (download) (annotate) - [select for diffs]

- Allow kdump to read /proc/kcore. (#241362)
Revision 1.2918  - (view) (download) (annotate) - [select for diffs]

remove last its of -kdump for 686
Revision 1.2869  - (view) (download) (annotate) - [select for diffs]
Wed Dec 13 19:34:03 2006 UTC (12 months, 2 weeks ago) by davej
kill off -kdump for 686/x86-64

It seems the capability was disabled during F7 and is no longer supported ?

If this is correct - the release notes {live} need an update, along with the howto at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FC6KdumpKexecHowTo
