Apache seg-faults (didn't used to)

Apache seg-faults (didn't used to)

Post by Aaron Turne » Fri, 16 Apr 1999 04:00:00

Red Hat Linux 5.2 (2.0.36 kernel, single P2 processor) fully patched
Apache 1.3.6
mod_ssl 2.2.8
mod_perl 1.19
mod_php 1.0.7

I was upgrading to mod_ssl 2.2.8 tonight (from 2.2.7) and after
re-compiling Apache (I have this scripted), I execute the apachectl

./apachectl startssl

It asks me for my server.crt passphrase which I then give it, then very
ungraciously seg-falts/dumps core.  So I go back to 2.2.7, recompile,
execute, seg-fault/core dump.  Hmmm... this sucks.

strace isn't much use to me (here's the last few lines after typing my

close(4)                                = 0
munmap(0x29563000, 4096)                = 0
dup2(10, 2)                             = 2
getpid()                                = 21443
getpid()                                = 21443
lseek(3, 0, SEEK_SET)                   = 0
getpid()                                = 21443
read(3, "-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----\n"..., 1024) = 963
getpid()                                = 21443
getpid()                                = 21443
--- SIGSEGV (Segmentation fault) ---
+++ killed by SIGSEGV +++                                  

The only thing I can think of that I've upgraded since the last time I
sucessfully recompiled Apache was procmail and bash.

Ideas anyone????  My SSL server is foobar until I get this running.

1. Modem problem..It wasn't my fault; I didn't know :-)

I installed a modem into a box I had just installed RH 8.0 on.  When the
screen came up during the boot (kudzu I think) to configure the new
hardware it had found I accidently selected the "Continue" option.  Now it
ignores the modem on rebooting.  How do I get back to the modem to set it


2. New intended config: please advise

3. usermod seg-faults!

4. RedHat 7.1 install with GeForce Ultra 2 DDR (64Meg)

5. NO 'core' file when C program seg faults???

6. Networking w/ Linux & serial cables

7. Does 'ps -xjag' make your Sun seg fault?

8. undeleting many big files in ext2 filesystems: any way to automate ?

9. Seg Fault when running 'more'

10. seg. fault on slackware 'a' set

11. iwconfig seg-faults

12. getty_ps seg-faults w/ RINGBACK

13. elm still seg faults on 'send'
