Enable corefile in RH8.0 - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

There is a setting to allow a corefile to be written when a process crashes. If not set, no corefile is created. Can anyone tell me what setting this is?...

    It's the "corefile" setting. What question did you actually mean to post?
    Did you actually want to ask "what does this setting do"?

    It allows for the creation of a core dump file if a process crashes. If a
    process crashes, a special file is created that contains the environment at
    the instant of the crash. This file can be yzed for clues as about the
    cause of the crash.

    I suppose you use bash, if so check ulimit -c

    Yes that's exactly what it is, thank you. /etc/profile had it explicitly
    turned off:

    # No core files by default
    ulimit -S -c 0 > /dev/null 2>&1
