You have to provide a profile in order to let volatility know you're
dealing with a linux system. Volatility 2.2 assumes that if you don't
specify a profile you're dealing with a Windows XP system. "python
vol.py -h" won't tell you about linux plugins if it thinks you're
dealing with a windows system because we've got too many plugins to
make the output useful.
You can list all the profiles you install of volatility knows about by
running "python vol.py --info". If you don't have an Ubuntu profile,
you may have to make your own. Instructions for making a profile for
linux can be found at .
Once you have your profile made, you can tell volatility to use it, by
always including "--profile=Linux<yourprofilename>" in your volatility
command line. You can then use "python vol.py -h" to see all the
available linux plugins.
Please let us know how you get on and if you're still having problems
making use of the linux support in volatility 2.2...
