The kernel has its own crash handling and will initiate the writing of the proper image automatically. It will be stored on the partition designated by the /etc/rc.conf setting dumpdev="<device>", usually a swap partition, and at next boot time that image will be written to a file in /var/crash, if nothing else has been defined with dumpdir="<directory>" (same file; see "man rc.conf" and /etc/defaults/rc.conf for details). If you want to coredump to a USB device, you need to configure this accordingly. You can find more information about this topic in the following manual pages: "man 2 sigaction", "man 8 crash", and "man 5 core". -- Polytropon Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
