I've done both (and have radiusd as a core unlimited user in
/lib/security/limits.conf). And have now restarted the daemon.

However, this is a systemd system and I have the suspicion it has its

I checked the core dump collection state of


but it had no coredumps for me.

I'm not totally skilled in systemd and its core dump behaviour. If
someone has a tip how to get core dumps from systemd, I'm all ears.
