The kdumpid tool can be used to determine the kernel version from a crash dump. Some useful features are missing:

  • support for new compression methods (lzo, snappy)
  • support for new architectures (ppc64le)
  • for Xen dumps, include the hypervisor version in the output

Status after Hackweek 11

The kdumpid application has switched to libkdumpfile (see also the gdb-kdump Hackweek Project), which adds support for lzo and snappy. Partial support of ppc64le has been added, too. Xen hypervisor version is detected and printed.

Looking for hackers with the skills:

c crash coredump

This project is part of:

Hack Week 11
