Description

LSAC(v2)
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.
