Looking at the properties of the "core" file, says its a link to "proc/kcore".
So I go into the "proc" folder to find kcore and looking at it's properties:
140.7 TB (140,737,486,266,368 bytes)
I go into the hard drive properties, "File System"
267,181 items, totalling 140.7 TB
(some contents unreadable)
If I log out of Cinnamon and log in with KDE or LXDE, the Core file reports a normal size. So it can't be because I enabled ALPM power savings in the Kernel.
Can anyone else look at their file under Cinnamon and see if it reports a silly high size??
