hylafax faxsend process keeps zombiefying

Post by Peter Winterflo » Sun, 30 Jun 1996 04:00:00



Dear All
I have hylafax v3p11 running under linux, kernal 1.3.100.
the faxsend process keeps zombiefying,
if i attach strace to it it says PANIC and dies, this sometimes causes
faxsend to start with another zombiefyed process.
othertimes it starts and processes the fax ok.
i have checked the hylafax mailing list and so far no one with this
prob, ill post to them as well.
please email me direct if you have any ideas.
regards peter winterflood
ps ive tried compiling this with 2.70 and 2.72 gcc,
im just starting to think hylafax was a bad idea............

There was a hint in the Changes-File of my 2.0.0 Kernel. You will have to
change the FIFO mode to READWRITE. Then everything is OK.

1. Hylafax - faxq unable to exec faxsend

I am attempting to setup Hylafax 4.0pl2 on my Linux (RedHat 5.2, kernel
2.0.36) box.  I installed the Hylafax RPM, hylafax-4.0pl2-3rh5.i386.rpm from
ftp://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/Linux/distributions/redhat/contrib/hurrican....
Inbound faxes are working fine; but I receive the following error anytime that
I send a fax.

Jan  9 21:54:20 linux1 FaxQueuer[7784]: SUBMIT JOB 8
Jan  9 21:55:03 linux1 FaxQueuer[7784]: JOB 8: Send program terminated
abnormally; unable to exec /usr/sbin/faxsend
Jan  9 21:55:03 linux1 FaxQueuer[7784]: NOTIFY: bin/notify "doneq/q8" "failed"
"0:01"

The permissions on /usr/sbin are

drwxr-xr-x   2 root     root         4096 Jan  8 12:10 sbin

The permissions on /usr/sbin/faxsend are

-rwxr-xr-x   1 root     root        15576 Sep 29 15:45 faxsend

If I su - fax I can see and execute /usr/sbin/faxsend from bash without any
problems.

I do have the server and sesssion trace levels set to 11 but don't get any
error messages other than what is shown.  There are no logs created in
/var/spool/fax/logs either.
