Re: Hammer error?
:I was doing some backup from Machine0 to Machine1 using hammer
:mirror-copy and got a suppicious new file called "hammer.core".
:Looking around the files it looks like a success copy but i still
:curious about this new 720kb file.
:Someone can tell me if i need to worry about it and where can i start
:checking for errors in case there was one?
:Machine0 has DFBSD2.2.0-release, Machine1 has DFBSD2.2.1-release,
:could it be the problem? should i just upgrade both?
A hammer.core could only come from the hammer utility core dumping.
This wouldn't be a filesystem error but it certainly indicates a bug
somewhere in the hammer utility.
If you haven't updated the sources relative to when the core was
generated you can recompile the hammer utility with DEBUG_FLAGS=-g and
then gdb the binary and core file and get a backtrace to see where it
If you have updated the sources since then you'd have to wait for a new
core file to be generated for a newly debug-compiled hammer utility to
match the core file.
make DEBUG_FLAGS=-g all install
gdb /sbin/hammer hammer.core
