How to define a custom core file handler in Linux - and, as an example, launch GDB whenever a core file is dumped
I recently was wondering how apport can intercept core files written by the Linux kernel: Essentially, there is a kernel interface which allows to execute arbitrary commands whenever the kernel generates a core file. Earlier, this was used to fine tune the filename of the core file, ...

BLOG: Remembering Leonard Nimoy

Normally, I’m pretty good with words. At the moment, I’m not at my best, for reasons I hope are self evident. However, I’m going to do my best to remember someone who gave more to my life than he ever knew. I never got to know Leonard Nimoy the way my…
