a little problem with limits...

Post by l.. » Tue, 26 Jan 1999 04:00:00

I've been trying house train my PC recently, but so far, I've been totally
unable to stop it from leaving core dumps everywhere. [I can't even get it
to use the litter tray]  :)

First off.... I've used chsh to set my default shell to tcsh.

In /etc/profile, there's something close to the beginning with

ulimit -c 20000

I changed that to 0, with no luck....

So, I edited my .cshrc file, and inserted

limit coredumpsize 0

However, typing limit after bootup STILL says the coredump is unlimited.
typeing limit coredumpsize from the command line works however.
