{SOLVED} Delete core dumps?

Post by JTJersey »

Since installing GhostBSD 12.2 a few days ago I've got several core dump files in my home folder. Can I delete them? They average about 40Mb in size each.

From time to time I delete the core dump files in my home folder.

Have not seen any problems with it so far...

You can remove dumpon and savecore from boot services.

Code: Select all

rc-update delete savecore boot
rc-update delete dumpon boot

Not being a programmer, how do I implement those two lines of code? In a terminal gets me this: rc-update: service `savecore' is not in the runlevel `boot'

You use them simply in a terminal, that's right. You need superuser rights:
'sudo rc-update delete dumpon boot'

In a terminal 'rc-update' without option shows all runlevels and services.
If `savecore' is not listed in the output, it will not getting started at boot.

There is a detailled explanation in the wiki:
rc-update

Did try that as superuser, but got same message about not being in runlevel boot. rc-update in a terminal doesn't list either savcore or dumpon services, so I guess something else is causing the core dump files to show up in my Home folder.

Just run rc-update by itself it will give you the list of services and at what level they are.

also, savecore might not be set up.

Thanks. I appreciate your taking time to respond. This is all I've got after running rc-update.
System Log Viewer/messages shows me this, if it's of any use to you. I've gotten this same message for every day I've booted the system.
