Hi all,

don't know if this question was already written here, but after browsing some
of my dirs, I found the file /proc/kcore, which is by now 33558528 Bytes (!)
in size ?? I just wonder what this file means (sorry for this poor question,
but I've not very much experience with linux, still learning it...) and why it
is so big ???

I'm running Kernel V2.1.27 with all updated versions of the programs listed in
Documentation/Changes, more infos available if required.

Thx for your help,
