Looks to me like the latest 2.4.5-pre1 is not creating
coredump for multithreaded aplications:

$ ulimit -a
core file size (blocks) unlimited
data seg size (kbytes) unlimited
file size (blocks) unlimited
max locked memory (kbytes) unlimited
max memory size (kbytes) unlimited
open files 1024
pipe size (512 bytes) 8
stack size (kbytes) 8192
cpu time (seconds) unlimited
max user processes 6144
virtual memory (kbytes) unlimited

$ ./testcore
Segmentation fault

--- test program --

#include <stdio.h>
#include <pthread.h>

#define TASKS 10

void* thread(void* arg)
printf("yuk %s\n", 0xffff0000);
return 0;

int main(int argc, char *argv[])
pthread_t task[TASKS];
void* ret;
int i = 0;
for(i = 0; i < TASKS; i++)
pthread_create(&task[i], NULL, thread, 0);
for(i = 0; i < TASKS; i++)
pthread_join(task[i], &ret);

return 0;

for single threadad apps there is no problem:
(just put printf after int i declaration)
$ ./testcore
Segmentation fault (core dumped)


Am I doing something wrong ???

Also for quite a long time Alan's AC patches were efictively locking
my machine when threaded application was crashing - resolvin
almost original behaviour solved this problem - but I like
per-thread coredump - is there any special reason why this is still
not present in the current 2.4.4 kernel as I can see this as quite
