Core dump is disabled by default in redhat. To see how you can enable it, you should read this article.

similar problem

I get a core dump for a small test application, but not for a larger one. The only thing I can think of is I don't have enough quota for the core dump? How big of a dump should a 7MB executable create?

The coredumpsize is unlimited and I am using csh.
