SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 Service Pack 4
In certain environments it may be desired to allow the capturing of core dump files in bash or any other shell. After updating to SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 Service Pack 4 based releases it is observed that sudo environments set the ulimit value of core file size to zero as illustrated in the following example
user@localhost:~> sudo -i -u linux [sudo] password for linux: linux@localhost:~> ulimit -a core file size (blocks, -c) 0 [...]
while for regular logins, sshd or "su -" sessions the value is set to "unlimited"
user@localhost:~> su - linux Password: linux@localhost:~> ulimit -a core file size (blocks, -c) unlimited [...]
Defaults rlimit_core=defaultto /etc/sudoers using the command visudo as root.
