[ELDK] Never get any core dumps

Hi All,

strangely, all our programs we build for PPC never generate any core dumps when they crash.
Of course we did 'ulimit -c unlimited' but that didn't have any effect.
We also tried using setrlimit() directly in the program--again without any success.

Right now we're out of ideas and would greatly appreciate any pointers.

The system we use:
ELDK: 4.2
Linux Kernel:
gcc: 4.2.2
CPU: PPC 7448

All our programs are run as root user. Our programs are cross-compiled on an x86 development host.

Best Regards,
