OK. I'll post that way, and I'll also give description explaining what
is added in the release.

Thanks. It's helpful. I'll let you know after I consider what's needed
to be described. I've not yet have git tree in public but it'll help
if exists. I'll consider that from now on.

Also, I have a question about the fact that gcore hanged during the
process of gathering note information.

I attempted reproducing the bug on with
crash-5.0.6-2.fc14.x86_64 and crash-5.1.1, but it have not been
reproduced yet: gcore worked well for both crash versions.

I then retried using 2.6.34-2.fc14.x86_64 but failed to boot on the
same environment as in

So, questions I have are: In what kind of environments did you face
the hang? I want to and need to set up the same environment as
yours. In Fedora Alpha, its kernel version was already 2.6.35
according to the release notes:


Also, it is helpful if you show me a backtrace during gcore hanging.
