crash program update needed
Last modified: 2016-02-09 20:32:48 EST
The RHEL5 version of the "crash" (4.0-3.14) program will not work with a 2.6.21
I have have done preliminary testing of the 4.0-4.1 version of crash on
kernel-rt-2.6.21-14.el5rt and it seems to work. I don't know if any versions
between the two are sufficient for the 2.6.21 kernel.
(I filed this against "kernel" because we don't have a "crash" component)
I'll continue testing to make sure the newest version of "crash" will work for

Is there an ETA for the updated crash package to be made available?
The latest upstream will work. You can build and install
Getting it into the repo will take a little time.
For i686, see also bug 241810
The crash maintainer will release 4.0-4.2 or later as a RHEL5 errata "soon."
Since we can build our own from source until then, I think we should forgo
adding crash to our repo.
crash is apparently not going to be updated for 5.0
The 5.1 beta has crash-4.0-4.3.1

Sripathi, yes. The required version of crash tool is available in RHEL5.1. We
can close this bug.
