Hi all,

I've tried get core dump from named on linux system (yes, Fedora and
RHEL :) ). All other programs generate core file when they get sigsegv
or sigabrt but named not. I expect some problem during setting limits
during named startup but I'm interested if other people has same

$ ulimit -c unlimited
$ named -gu named
$ killall -SEGV named

I've tested it also with coresize option (unlimited, 1G, 100M) without
success with latest 9.3 and 9.5 releases. Do you have any hints?

Regards, Adam
