[LDM #KXP-405917]: LDM 6.12.6 crashed again


> No, how do I get one?

The LDM has to be built with debugging enabled by specifying "CFLAGS=-g" to the 
configure(1) script. Was it?

The LDM user account must be configured for an unlimited core-file size. For 
example, by the command "ulimit -c unlimited". Is it?

A stack-trace is then obtained by executing a debugger as "root". For example,

    # su - ldm                       # as LDM user
    $ cd                             # in home directory
    $ su                             # become root
    $ gdb bin/ldmd data/core.1234    # pathname of core-file will be different
    gdb> where                       # get stack trace
    gdb> quit                        # exit

Being "root" is likely necessary because ldmd(1) is setuid and owned by root.
