core dumps in CentOS 5.5 Final

Postby dlupisella » 2010/11/23 14:03:54

I have done numerous searches and ran countless tests using suggestions found on these forums and on the web but to no avail. How in the world do I get programs to core dump? The program in question is the Trend Micro Deep Security agent. This program runs as root and when I 'sudo' to root and run a 'ulimit -a' it shows me that the core file size is unlimited and my /proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern is set to 'core.%e.%p' however if I run a 'kill -SIGABRT ' then no core file is created in the running directory. What gives?!?! Any help on this would be GREATLY appreciated.

Welcome to the CentOS fora.

The recommended reading for all new members starts with the FAQ & Readme First.

Please take a look at lines 29 - 30 in the /etc/profile file and all will be revealed. :-)
