Thanks for the information.  So, it is a tool for collecting crash
data from developers during panics.

The specific problem I got for kdump fail is:

No kdump kernel image found. [WARNING]
Tried to locate /boot/vmlinux-2.6.15-1.2009.4.2_FC5hypervisorkdump

And my kernel is: /boot/vmunix-2.6.15-1.2009.4.2_FC5hypervisor

So it appears that the "kdump" string was added at the end, and if
this is the case - the kernel file definitely does not exist.

The kdump service failed to start.
