makedumpfile 1:1.6.1-2ubuntu0.1 source package in Ubuntu


makedumpfile (1:1.6.1-2ubuntu0.1) artful; urgency=medium

  * KDUMP_CMDLINE_APPEND: add noirqdistrib to default command line. As it's
    only used by ppc64el, it's not required to be conditionally added.
    (LP: #1658733)
  * Set crashkernel for ppc64el to load at 128M instead of 32M. That allows
    larger kernels to boot. (LP: #1728115)
