Where did all the coredumps go?
Written by Walter
Was trying to use gdb (has been a while).
Here is a good gdb tutorial:
A good trick to remember is this:
ulimit -c unlimited
This will cause the good ol' coredump files to be created again. By default in newer linux distributions this is set to 0. Meaning if an app crashes no core file is dumped. Saving regular users some diskspace but when debugging code you have to set it back to unlimited so you can use the core file to see what went wrong :).
