Description Joe Orton 2003-04-17 09:48:18 EDT
setuid apps won't dump core; need to call prctl(PR_SET_DUMPABLE,1) so that httpd
is dumpable.
Comment 1 Joe Orton 2003-07-09 06:11:31 EDT
It turns out that the Red Hat kernel patches include a change which prevents a
process ever turning the "dumpable" flag back on using the prctl call above, so
this won't work without kernel changes.
Comment 2 Joe Orton 2003-07-22 10:07:56 EDT
There's nothing more that httpd can do - the only problem is bug 98825.
