Default ANNOUNCE: PyKdump-0.6.4 prebuilt binaries for X86/X86_64 available

Hello,

*

even though PyKdump extension is widely used both in HP and other companies, I have not uploaded any binaries to SF since 2008. This is mainly due to the lack of time - my colleagues in HP use binaries built by me on our internal hosts and other companies are either building from sources or ask me to provide binaries by email. As a result, the old binaries from SF do not work properly on recent kernels. Wiki documentation describing how to build from sources was not very good either (now Bruce Korb has kindly agreed to help with documentation).

*

You can download the prebuilt binaries from

*

http://sourceforge.net/projects/pykdump/

*

These binaries have been built on RHEL4. As the only dependency is GLIBC,

this means that they can be used on any distribution with GLIBC not older

than that on RHEL4, in particular RHEL5, RHEL6, SLES10, SLES11 are fine.

*

Usually extensions built against a specific crash version do not need

to be rebuilt for other crash versions, as long as it is the same major

version. But extensions built against crash-6.X will not work with

crash-5.X and vice versa.

*

For convenience, the archive contains both extensions (built with

Python-2.7.2 and crash-6.0.3), and crash executables themselves,

both 32-bit and 64-bit versions:

*

usr/local/bin/crash32

usr/local/bin/crash64

usr/local/lib/mpykdump32.so

usr/local/lib/mpykdump64.so

*

The provided utilities work with any kernel starting from 2.4.21 and up to

3.0.0.

*

Loading the extension registers 'epython', 'crashinfo', 'xportshow' and 'taskinfo' commands.

*

'epython' can be used to run your own scripts, other commands are general-purpose and have many options.

*

I hope to significantly improve the documentation and building process in the nearest future.

*

Regards,

Alex
