Memory fault (Core dumped)


I wanted to know how to debug a “memory fault (Core dumped)” error.

I have a script which gives me this error when the command “cd /” is executed. If I know how to debug a core dump error, then I can identify the problem


If you get a memory fault when doing a cd /, then most likely your hardware is bad.

The manual contains all the information you need to help you debug a core dump.

I would try to run chkfsys (/sbin/chkfsys I think). If that doesn’t help, then I think a hardware bug is likely.
