Here are the problems I encountered:
1. the netdump-server package misses the creation of the /var/crash/magic=20
directory. Client init script want to write its magic cookie in it, and=20
fails because it does not exists.
2. the netdump package misses the propagation of the ssh dsa public key,=20
which could be added in the postinst script
3. and of course, the debconf way of asking netdump-server ip would be the=
best solution :)
I'd like to fix thoses myself, but I would need the package sources, and I=
don't want to mess your work.
Thanks again, and have a good vacation.
