Solaris Common Messages and Troubleshooting Guide


To see which program produced a core(4) file, run either the file(1) command or the adb(1) command. The following examples show the output of the file(1) and adb(1) commands on a core file from the dtmail program.

$ file core
core: ELF 32-bit MSB core file SPARC Version 1, from `dtmail'

$ adb core
core file = core -- program `dtmail'
SIGSEGV  11: segmentation violation
^D      (use Control-d to quit the adb rogram)
Ask the vendor or author of this program for a debugged version.
