exactly what format are the crash files?

Postby thebobcampbell » Sat Sep 28, 2013 6:17 pm

Just installed Mint 15 (3.8.0-30-generic #44-Ubuntu SMP Thu Aug 22 20:52:24 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux)

I'm trying to run a large batch of file through rawtherapee, and it seems to crash every 5-25 images processed. Not so good when you've got 600+ to get through.

It leaves behind:
/usr/crash/_usr_bin_rawtherapee.1000.crash

Which shows as:
/var/crash $ file _usr_bin_rawtherapee.1000.crash
_usr_bin_rawtherapee.1000.crash: ASCII text, with very long lines

Ooooooo k.

I guess I'm used to systems knowing what the hell their core files are (Solaris sys admin here).
I've tried:
/var/crash $ crash _usr_bin_rawtherapee.1000.crash
crash: _usr_bin_rawtherapee.1000.crash: not a supported file format
/var/crash $ gdb /usr/bin/rawtherapee ./_usr_bin_rawtherapee.1000.crash
"/var/crash/./_usr_bin_rawtherapee.1000.crash" is not a core dump: File format not recognized
/var/crash $ more _usr_bin_rawtherapee.1000.crash
ProblemType: Crash
Architecture: amd64
CrashCounter: 1
Date: Sat Sep 28 15:03:58 2013
DistroRelease: LinuxMint 15
ExecutablePath: /usr/bin/rawtherapee
ExecutableTimestamp: 1353390404
ProcCmdline: rawtherapee

So how does one go about analyzing these ".crash" files? It'd be nice to know if I'm hitting a bad memory segment or cpu core. I'd rather find out it's a mismatched library version, of course...
