[Crash-utility] The problems when running SuSE 12 on VirtualBox



Hi all,

Firstly, I am not sure whether posting this issue on this mailing list
is appropriate, if not,
please forgive me, thanks!

I install SuSE Enterprise Linux 12 (Xen version) on VirtualBox, and
want to use crash.
Executing "crash" command, and the output likes this:

# crash

crash: /var/tmp/vmlinux-3.12.49-6-xen.gz_FjRFMJ and /dev/mem do not match!

Usage:

 crash [OPTION]... NAMELIST MEMORY-IMAGE[ ADDRESS]     (dumpfile form)
 crash [OPTION]... [NAMELIST]                          (live system form)

Enter "crash -h" for details.

My question are as follows:

(1) There are so may warnings like this:

crash: xxxxxx: original filename unknown
  Use "-f xxxxxx" on command line to prevent this message.

Do I need to add somay "-f xxxxxx" options on command line? Is there
any better method?

(2) "machine type mismatch"
WARNING: machine type mismatch:
crash utility: X86_64
/var/tmp/xen-4.5.1_10-1.gz_E5lLat: X86

But according to "uname -a":

 # uname -a
Linux linux-6ev3 3.12.49-6-xen #1 SMP Mon Oct 26 16:05:37 UTC 2015
(11560c3) x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

The running SuSE is also a 64-bit OS, so whether can remove these warnings?

(3)

WARNING: could not find MAGIC_START!
WARNING: cannot read linux_banner string
crash: /var/tmp/vmlinux-3.12.49-6-xen.gz_FjRFMJ and /dev/mem do not match!

How can I fix this issue and run crash on SuSE?

Thanks very much in advance!
Best Regards
Nan Xiao
