Post output of these 2 commands [Nothing harmful]

The first command lets you know how old is your endeavour os install
awk -F "[[ ]" 'NR==1 {print $2;}' /var/log/pacman.log

The second command is about core dumps.
I am just intrigued as how many you are getting core dumps lately or is it just me.

coredumpctl -r

Better if you can post the output of a physical hardware, not a virtual machine running EOS.

Maybe post yours first so that other users can start identifying what’s wrong with your system right away?

I reinstalled eos just today so I don’t have any coredumps yet but here’s the output anyway.
No coredumps found.

Obviously, I was referring to the problematic coredumps before your reinstall.

Yeah, I’m intrigued as how many other people are getting core dumps. I remember calamares crashed on me with a core dump as well while installing eos.

actually, it only displays the first time pacman was used after you rotated/cleaned your log files, which can be the install date but does not have to be :wink:

Yup. It makes more sense to check the timestamps when the file systems were created. Or the earliest journal entry, if the journal has never been vacuumed.

yeah, that’s correct. But many people I guess don’t clean them :wink:

And here, we go got another core dump.
I suspect it just happens on EOS, I’m gonna try plain arch or another arch distribution to see if it happens there too. As core dumps are never normal.

This is the output of the latest core dump


I can’t believe it is almost a year on only one installation!
(It could have been more than that if it was my previous laptop, but this is a new laptop I bought - I can say I bought it that day because I remember once I went home I directly installed EndeavourOS and wiped the Windoze).
