Unpack the release archive and change to source directory:

tar -xzf minicoredumper-x.y.z.tar.gz
cd minicoredumper-x.y.z

The minicoredumper project uses the GNU Build System to configure, compile, and install its software and documentation. For a default installation, the commands are:

./configure
make
sudo make install

The minicoredumper program requires a configuration file and optionally recept files. Examples of these files are available in the etc directory within the source directory. Although they will certainly need modification, they can be copied to be used as a starting point for the software.

sudo mkdir /etc/minicoredumper
sudo cp etc/minicoredumper/minicoredumper.cfg.json /etc/minicoredumper/
sudo cp etc/minicoredumper/*.recept.json /etc/minicoredumper/

After modifying the configuration and recept files as needed, the minicoredumper dump utility is ready for use. Now Linux must be directed to use minicoredumper to handle the creation of core files:

echo '|/usr/sbin/minicoredumper %P %u %g %s %t %h %e' | sudo tee /proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern

Note: This is not a persistent setting and must be performed on each system boot.
