The version of crash shipped with RHEL5.1 seems to be incompatible with the RHEL
MRG kernel (22.214.171.124-29.el5rt). When I open a kdump using this crash, I get a
number of errors like the following:
crash: invalid kernel virtual address: 805f8f00ffff8102 type: "fill_thread_info"
crash: invalid task address: ffff81022e963974
crash: invalid task address: ffff81022e963a58
crash: invalid kernel virtual address: 0 type: "fill_thread_info"
crash: invalid task address: ffff8100c41b7a68
crash: invalid task address: ffff8100c28e7978
The version of crash on RHEL5.1 is:
[root@llm55 2008-03-13-23:06]# crash -v
I compiled crash from the latest sources available (crash 4.0-6.1) and that did
not show this error.
I also checked the version of crash available in RHEL5.2 beta and that too did
not show these errors. The crash rpm I tried is crash-4.0-5.0.2.x86_64.rpm
So it looks like newer versions of crash behave better with MRG kernel. Could
you please put the new crash rpm on MRG repo?

Verified that the repo now contains crash-4.0-5.0.2
