CONFIG_KCORE_ELF:

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_KCORE_ELF has multiple definitions:

found in arch/xtensa/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_KCORE_ELF:

Help text

If you enabled support for /proc file system then the file /proc/kcore will contain the kernel core image in ELF format. This can be used in gdb:

$ cd /usr/src/linux ; gdb vmlinux /proc/kcore

This is especially useful if you have compiled the kernel with the "-g" option to preserve debugging information. It is mainly used for examining kernel data structures on the live kernel.

If you enabled support for /proc file system then the file /proc/kcore will contain the kernel core image. This can be used in gdb:

$ cd /usr/src/linux ; gdb vmlinux /proc/kcore

You have two choices here: ELF and A.OUT. Selecting ELF will make /proc/kcore appear in ELF core format as defined by the Executable and Linking Format specification. Selecting A.OUT will choose the old "a.out" format which may be necessary for some old versions of binutils or on some architectures.

This is especially useful if you have compiled the kernel with the "-g" option to preserve debugging information. It is mainly used for examining kernel data structures on the live kernel so if you don't understand what this means or are not a kernel hacker, just leave it at its default value ELF.
