    How do I set up core dumps?

    Hi All,

    A vendor wants me to set up core dumps for him on a Fedora 30 server.

    Is this link from 2012 still valid?
    https://radek.io/2012/02/11/core-dumps-in-fedora/

    And is there a way to set up core dumps on only particular software? (Okay, I know, split infinitive, but you know what I mean.)

    Many thanks,
    -T

    The answer will depend some what on the software.
    You mention a server, so I will assume its not an interactive desktop program.

    Can you put it in a shell script wrapper ?
    If so, then just run the ulimit -c unlimited command before calling the program.
    You might also consider ensuring it is running somewhere that has the permissions and available space for the core files.

    User error. Please replace user and try again
