Re: [Xen-devel] libxl: crash fails to load vmcore when the guest memory greater than 4G

I'm not very sure, but if my vmlinux file is not correct, crash should load 
vmcore failed, whether the guest memory greater than 4G or not.

My vmlinux file was downloaded from: 

and I have send the vmlinux and vmcore files (good and bad one) download link 
to your email, you can use gunzip command to unzip these files.

In addition, my redhat5.5(32bit) guest os information:
[root@localhost ~]# uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.18-194.el5PAE #1 SMP Tue Mar 16 22:00:21 EDT 
2010 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux [root@localhost ~]#

Are you sure that you use correct vmlinux file for this vmcore file?
If yes, could you put both vmcore files (good and bad one) and vmlinux file 
somwhere for download? I will try to look at this issue in week or two.
