Hello, Since we see this in xenial as well, will there be a track opened for delivery of a fix there as well? Thanks.

The created dumpfile may be incomplete. The makedumpfile version on your machine is # makedumpfile -v makedumpfile: version 1.5.5 (released on 18 Dec 2013) I did a #sudo apt-get source makedumpfile and checked for the sources. In the makedumpfile.h , the LATEST_VERSION is set to #define OLDEST_VERSION KERNEL_VERSION(2, 6, 15)/* linux-2.6.15 */ #define LATEST_VERSION KERNEL_VERSION(4, 1, 0)/* linux-4.1.0 */ where as kernel version on the machine is # uname -r 4.2.0-27-generic Hence we see this mismatch and message as "The kernel version is not supported." We need canonical to change the value of LATEST_VERSION so that we do not see this message.
