hi, I recently updated to ver 12.

Since then, the system frequently generated huge-sized core files in my home directory for seamonkey web browser and Kodi. I've nvidia card driver installed on the system.

Any suggestion how to fix this?

Core dumps are created when an application crashes. The actual crashes can be caused by a variety of reasons.

I very rarely get core dumps from SeaMonkey - I have it running for months at a time with a twm desktop.

[edit] I'm using FreeBSD 11.3-STABLE, not 12 - sorry - missed that first time around.

Just FYI, but SeaMonkey was removed.

Looking at the About page on Seamonkey, info says:
Code:
    You are currently on the release update channel.
    See a list of contributors to the Mozilla Project.
    Read the licensing information for this product.
    Read the release notes for this version.
    See the build configuration used for this version.
    User agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; FreeBSD i386; rv:52.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/52.0 SeaMonkey/2.49.4
    Build identifier: 20190521044312
which is a pretty recent built, where do i check that a package such as Seamonkey is removed from ver 12 release?

I upgraded about a month ago from 10.3 -> 11 > 12 on my machine, and I was so confused about different versions (i.e. the most recent stable release), when I later found out on distrowatch that ver 11.3 was just released.

All versions of FreeBSD use the same ports tree. As such all FreeBSD versions have the same packages/ports with the same versions. If a port gets removed it is removed for all versions.

and I was so confused about different versions (i.e. the most recent stable release),
Most people should use a -RELEASE version. Preferably the last major version.

when I later found out on distrowatch that ver 11.3 was just released.
Yes. Keep mind this also means that support for 11.2 will end 3 months after the release of 11.3. Only the latest minor version of a major release is supported.

thanks for the clarification.

May I ask why Seamonkey was removed from the port? It's been there since 2005...
My favorite web browser are Dooble/Palemoon in win/Linux since I dislike Firefox, but neither is available as a complete pkg here.
