File too large to edit


I want to edit /proc/kcore (534Mb) in Midnight Commander by pressing F4, but got error: File too large. How to edit it?

why would you want to edit that file? /proc/kcore is kernel memory, the filesystem buffer and cache.

I wouldn't try to mess with that if I were you.

The user victor uses mail. At dispatch of the message the recipient receives in Thebat the letter from victor.bashinsky. Bashinsky don't like this. I want to make so that the recipient did not see a surname of the sender. In proc/kcore there is a record victor.bashinsky, I want to correct it on victor

Sorry, I don't really get what you mean in the last post.

From waht I gather you have some sort of problem with your mailing system. You'd have to reconfigure your mailing system in order to fix these problems.

Tell me about your Linux system and Mailing daemon. Configuration differs hugely between the different mailing daemons.

Hm sorry to say that I don't use sendmail (I prefer postfix) because it's a bit to complicated to configure for my taste.


You'll have to search Google a bit on a Howto to rewrite the sender Adress. Be careful though, people will start sending emails to this adress (victor@somewhere.com) so you have to rewrite all receiving mails as well!

But why victor.bashinsky is recorded in /proc/kcore (not victor)?
