If you're not running a graphical interface, with the default of 'ask',
nothing's going to listen for kerneloops dbus messages, so the daemon
will never be signalled to send oopses.
You can, of course, change the default in /etc/kerneloops.conf from 'ask'
to 'always'. Do you think we need a debconf question to set this up?
Or a note to let people know they can activate it?
My opinion is that this will still be useful even if people with headless
servers don't activate it. I think many more people encounter kernel
bugs on desktop Debian machines than they do on servers.
Intel are signing my paycheques ... these opinions are still mine
