Bug Description


I'm running Ubuntu with HWE kernel 5.19.0-35-generic. The kernel contains slab struct changes [1] that break crash 8.0.0. The issue has been fixed [3] in commit 14f8c460473c ("memory: Handle struct slab changes on Linux 5.17-rc1 and later"). The fix is available in crash 8.0.1 and above.

If you wish I can send a merge request to jammy-devel with this single patch but for now it seems that Ubuntu's process with regards to this package is just bump it to the newer version from debian.

Please advice how to proceed. For now I just build the latest version of crash and I can open kdumps from Jammy with HWE using it.
