Description Torsten Schuetze 2001-11-28 08:17:08 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.78 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.9-14 i686)

Description of problem:
In RedHat 7.2 by default no core files are generated. This should be
changed back to the old behaviour as in RH 7.1, e.g.,

ulimit -S -c 1000000 > /dev/null 2>&1

It's no solution to just forbid core files. They help in writing better
programs.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Write a buggy program (or shutdown KDE, see bug #56816)

This was changed in order to save disk space, and in the understanding that
those that need core files know how to enable them.
