Check "cat /proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern". It says the path and format of the
Opensips init scripts sets it (/etc/init.d/opensips):
if test "$DUMP_CORE" = "yes" ; then
# set proper ulimit
ulimit -c unlimited
# directory for the core dump files
#[ -d $COREDIR ] || mkdir $COREDIR
#chmod 777 $COREDIR
echo "$COREDIR/core.%e.sig%s.%p" > /proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern # <-- HERE
For that you need to set DUMP_CORE=yes in /etc/default/opensips (not sure if
Fedora uses this location).
If the content of /proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern is just the default "core"
then the coredump file is called "core" and it's located on the directory from
where opensips was started (I hope).
