Description of problem:
I want my core files to be named "core" and not "core.32767"
so I have "kernel.core_uses_pid = 0" in /etc/sysctl.conf.
/proc/sys/kernel/core_uses_pid shows that the setting took:
% cat /proc/sys/kernel/core_uses_pid
% ls core*
ls: No match.
% xine [...]
Abort (core dumped)
% ls core*
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: Core file names have pid in them.
Expected Results: Core files should be named "core".

Same pb on RHEL3.
Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be
provided by Red Hat. The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel
updates for security problems only.
If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please
try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the
product version accordingly.
