I'm running Manjaro KDE and the /var/lib/systemd/coredump/ folder is around 500MB. What is it there for, and is it safe to delete it? sudo systemctl status shows running and no failed units.

/var/lib/systemd/coredump is where systemd-coredump stores core dumps. You can list them with coredumpctl.

If you don’t plan on investigating your core dumps any further, you can delete the contents of the directory.

  • Oh, okay. I had some coredump entries in systemctl status but I was able to resolve them without looking at the logs.
