Membuat dan analisis core dump

Suatu program gagal dijalankan. Eksekusi via terminal menunjukkan segmentation fault tanpa keterangan lainnya. Pada situasi inilah core dump diperlukan untuk debugging sehingga diketahui penyebabnya.

Contoh, geeqie apabila dijalankan di lingkungan wayland berbuah segmentation fault

$ geeqie
Segmentation fault

Saatnya membuat core dump

$ gcore /usr/bin/geeqie
Illegal process-id: /usr/bin/geeqie.
You can't do that without a process to debug.
The program is not being run.
gcore: failed to create core./usr/bin/geeqie

Kemudian eksekusi lagi

$ geeqie
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Core dumped. Filenya core ada di current working directory. Apabila masih belum terbentuk, atur ulimit menjadi unlimited.

$ ulimit -c unlimited

Selanjutnya core tersebut dapat dianalisis menggunakan gdb.

$ gdb /usr/bin/geeqie core
