Looks like systemd is a split package ... but where is coredumpctl?

Brian Hutchinson <b.hutchman@...>


I'm trying to figure out how to configure /etc/systemd/coredump.conf in order to get coredump files.

I don't appear to have coredumpctl nor can I find a recipe in Yocto or OE Core that looks like it builds it.  I've looked at all (I think) systemd packages that were generated when I built systemd and I don't see any that include coredumpctl.

Then I found this thread:

... which left me even more confused.

If I uncomment and define the settings in /etc/systemd/coredump.conf, will that enable coredumps or is there more to it than that?  I'm not sure how to get systemd-coredump going on a core-image-base image and Google is just turning up noise from other distros that don't appear to match what I'm seeing in Yocto/OE.  It feels like there should be a systemd-coredump recipe like in Debian but I'm not seeing a layer that provides something like that.   Maybe I'm not looking in the right place but I've been doing this a while and I'm kind of stumped.

Thanks for any hints to point me in the right direction.
