When a Sun Java VM crashes it usually creates a hs_err_pid* file (crash report). However we have a Open SuSE Linux server where java crashes without leaving a crash report behind. A core dump is created (SIGSEGV) but no hs_err_pid* file.
Are there circumstances where the Sun vm will not create a crash report? Or: how do I enable it.
My java version:
> java -version Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_17-b04) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 14.3-b01, mixed mode)
ps: It is not a problem of file system access permissions. In this case the vm will create the crash report in
