Core file location and abrt in Linux(fedora)

+2 votes
128 views

I'd like to ensure core files go to a local partition rather than the default location ($HOME), which is network-mounted in my case.

Googling a bit, I found this: https://access.redhat.com/site/solutions/61536

In light of that, a few questions... Does this still apply to abrt in Fedora 19?

That page suggests that when abrt is in use, core files would be generated in the location set by abrt, which defaults to /var/spool/abrt. However, I have abrtd running and I'm definitely getting core files in $HOME. Does abrt just make a copy to put in /var/spool/abrt?

Might my problem be resolved as simply as telling abrt not to make a copy? I'd be fine with just having the core files in /var/spool/abrt. Otherwise, I imagine I'd like them somewhere named /var/users/$USER/dump
(or similar). How do I do that and continue to play nicely with abrt?

My program Seg faults but cannot find where Ubuntu saves the core file.

I have changed the core_pattern as follows but still no core file:
echo "core.%e.%p" > /proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern

I want to debug and see where it is crashing. Appreciate if someone could help to generate the core file disk.

Runnning old "Fedora 20-x86_64", and want to install Fedora-Kde-live-25-1-3.

Situation:
$ uname -rov
3.19.8-100.fc20.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue May 12 17:08:50 UTC 2015 GNU/Linux

$ sudo lvmdiskscan
/dev/fedora/root [ 50,00 GiB]
/dev/fedora/swap [ 3,77 GiB]
/dev/sda2 [ 500,00 MiB]
/dev/vg_maq01/lv_swap [ 5,75 GiB]
/dev/sda3 [ 118,75 GiB] LVM physical volume

/dev/sdb5 [ 102,24 GiB] LVM physical volume
6 disks
4 partitions
0 LVM physical volume whole disks
2 LVM physical volumes

The /dev/sda* is a SSD(KINGSTON SV200S3128G) 128GB, with old "Fedora 16-x86_64", and only want to recover some files in /home.

The /dev/sdb* is a Seagate(ST3320613AS) 320GB, running old "Fedora 20-x86_64", with some important file in /home.

$ sudo lvscan
ACTIVE '/dev/fedora/swap' [3,77 GiB] inherit
ACTIVE '/dev/fedora/home' [48,48 GiB] inherit
ACTIVE '/dev/fedora/root' [50,00 GiB] inherit
ACTIVE '/dev/vg_maq01/lv_swap' [5,75 GiB] inherit
ACTIVE '/dev/vg_maq01/lv_home' [63,00 GiB] inherit
ACTIVE '/dev/vg_maq01/lv_root' [50,00 GiB] inherit

$ mount | grep /dev/mapper
/dev/mapper/fedora-root on / type ext4 (rw,relatime,seclabel,data=ordered)
/dev/mapper/fedora-home on /home type ext4
(rw,relatime,seclabel,data=ordered)

Problem:
Want to mount the SSD on "Fedora 20" to recover some files, copying it to /dev/sdb3 space(/dev/sdb3 not used/mounted). After this, I can erase all SSD and install "Fedora 25" on it.

Thanks for help.

I was playing with the permissions of

/home
/home/abc

Could someone please tell me the commands to restore the correct permissions to those both directories?
