It should run on non-Red Hat kernels, provided that the kernel doesn't
have some fundamental kernel difference/patch that causes it to fail.
The various kernel distributors (SUSE, Ubuntu, Debian, etc.) have their
own versions of this crash utility, which may have their own patches,
but the base upstream version is not tied to Red Hat kernels.
As far as binaries are concerned, it's likely that a version built on
one distribution won't run on another distribution, although I've never
If you can't build it from the sources, then I guess you would have
to get a binary version of crash from the distribution that you are
running on. What is your system missing that causes the build to fail?
