Description Matthias Clasen 2009-03-18 09:14:35 EDT
by filling up 100% of my disk with crash dumps after a few days.
It needs some options to limit the amount of crashes that it stores, and those need to be set to some sane values by default. Filling up my disk is not acceptable.
Comment 1 Matthias Clasen 2009-03-31 13:22:22 EDT
Any progress on this ? My system ran out of disk again yesterday.
Comment 2 Jiri Moskovcak 2009-04-01 03:26:42 EDT
I have fix ready and about to push to git repo, so it should be in the rawhide repo until the end of this week.

Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2009-04-15 22:21:14 EDT
What is the state of this ?
Comment 4 Matthias Clasen 2009-04-20 02:21:07 EDT
Appears to be fixed in 0.0.3-1 (at least it mentions this bug in changelog
Comment 5 Jiri Moskovcak 2009-04-20 03:48:03 EDT
Yes, it's fixed in 0.0.3-1.
Comment 6 Matthias Clasen 2009-06-14 11:16:24 EDT
Still happening to me though, in F12.
Comment 7 Matthias Clasen 2009-06-14 11:30:52 EDT
Also, when this happens, it is really hard to control.

/sbin/service abrt stop 

tells me it failed,

and /proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern does not get reset, meaning that hookCCpp keeps filling up my disk until I can manually get the core_pattern cleared.
