Advisory: RHBA-2013:0140-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2013-01-08
Last updated on: 2013-01-08
Affected Products: RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client)

Details

Updated crash packages that fix a bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 5.

The crash packages contain a self-contained utility that can be used to
investigate live systems and kernel core dumps created by the netdump, diskdump,
and kdump utilities.

This update fixes the following bug:

* The Xen dom0 dump files created with the "makedumpfile -d1" command on very
large systems could create an ELF vmcore that the crash utility incorrectly
determined to be an old-style netdump vmcore. Consequently, the crash session
failed during initialization with the error message "crash: cannot read xen
kdump p2m mfn page". With this update, the code has been fixed and the crash
utility now properly starts in the described scenario. (BZ#883727)

Users of crash are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this
bug.
