CentOS 5 :: Segmentation Faults With Yum, Logrotate, And Others?

Dec 4, 2010

Recently I noticed that on my Centos 5.4 system, yum no longer works and is giving segmentation faults. I can run "yum --help" and it works, but if I try to run something like "yum upgrade php" it will fault. I also noticed that other things are seg faulting as well, like /usr/sbin/logrotate and /usr/bin/certwatch.

I am guessing there is some sort of common library that needs fixing, but I have no idea what. I've read other posts about the yum segmentation fault and have tried various steps provided but so far no luck in getting it to work again. It used to work, and I rarely change this system so I'm not sure what could have caused it.

Ubuntu :: Razerd Segmentation Faults In Maverick?

Nov 23, 2010

I have am using Maverick Meerkat 10.10 Kernel version: 2.6.35-22-generic I have a Razer DeathAdder gaming mouse. I am trying to compile/run this tool: Razer config tool I have jumped through several hoops:[URL]..

This install was for 10.04. This link helped with taming the mouse a little:[URL]..

xinput --set-prop "Razer Razer DeathAdder" "Device Accel Constant Deceleration" 5
xinput --set-prop "Razer Razer DeathAdder" "Device Accel Velocity Scaling" 1

I get the program to compile (after some problems the usb.h file not being where the system said it was) and I install it following these instructions in the README file that I have attached. I get a segmentation fault error when the razer daemon razerd tries to start:

Ubuntu :: Segmentation Faults From Random Programs?

Mar 2, 2011

I have an annoying problem with Ubuntu 10.10 64bit. I made a clean installation of Ubuntu on my LG P310 laptop and I'm using the Nvidia proprietary driver. The problem is that I get segmentation faults from random program after a while of usage. Examples of programs are Thunderbird, Synaptic, apt-get and tap crashes in Chromium (which I would think is segmentation faults). It would seem like a underlying library is causing the faults. The problem disappear after a reboot, the faults might only occur after a wakeup from suspend, I'm not sure about that at the moment. I can't figure out what triggers these faults, and I don't know how to do error tracing in this case.

Debian :: Noob Messes Up On Apt-get Now Lots Of Segmentation Faults?

Feb 12, 2010

I have been running happily on Knoppmyth R5F27 (on Debian GNU 4.0/Etch) for a good long time. Everything has been operating well. My kids get to record their Mythbusters. Life is good. Tonight, though, I tried to make things better. And that was the mistake.

I read that we could use our PS3 to watch videos on Hulu. But, I needed a kind of proxy server or something to mask that I was using the PS3 browser. So, I thought I would install squid on the myth box.

I first tried apt-get install squid But, that didn't quite work. So, at a friend's suggestion, I ran: apt-get update Which had problems, too. Still, being a noob, I reran the apt-get install squid and a bunch of stuff came down. It has problems, too.

So, I turned back to apt-get update and realized there was a problem in sources.list. I updated it to have a more current repository and received the update. Then I realized that the apt-get for squid was pulling down resources for lenny. I struggled trying to kill the install for Squid. Failed. And then rebooted just to see if I have problems.

And I do. Mythbackend won't start. The command to do so produces a segmentation fault. Ditto for mythfrontend and mythtv-setup. I don't know what to do. Can someone help me roll this back to a stable setup of Etch? If you want to see my (very messy) attempt to install squid and update the system you can look at[URL]..

Ubuntu Servers :: How To Troubleshoot Cups Segmentation Faults

Apr 5, 2011

I've set up a new virtual server (ubuntu 10.04 LTS on RHEVM, "uname -a Linux print-me 2.6.32-31-server #60-Ubuntu SMP Thu Mar 17 23:33:39 UTC 2011 x86_64 GNU/Linux") 2 weeks ago just for cups and samba printing (no other filesharing). Ran tests and it looked fine, then last friday I have added 10 Ricoh printers and 3 hp printers. Looked fine, apart from an issue with one "HP Color Laserjet 2600n", but resolved this with the help of the driver found here: [URL].. Since saturday, cups crashes daily in the morning with a segmentation fault (segfault:, eg:

/var/log/kern.log:Apr 3 06:40:39 print-me kernel: [154716.314945] cupsd[20713]: segfault at 7f097c8cd5d0 ip 00007f0ab0f0fb0f sp 00007fff5282dc10 error 4 in libcups.so.2[7f0ab0efb000+47000]

I wanted to trace what happens just before this by changing the LogLevel[URL]..upsd-conf.html) but setting it to anything higher than notice makes cups segfault again, with additional message on CLI:

Ubuntu :: Multiple Applications Segmentation Faults After GNOME Load

May 4, 2010

some users [ possibly ATI card owners running fglrx default ubuntu driver ] have issues having compiz enabled and trying to change the mouse pointer to a larger size. It actually doesn't get resized at all, expect when moved over Firefox and OpenOffice.I was fiddling in trying to get a workaround for this when suddenly Nautilus started to crash and respawn in an infinite loop. Everything then started to fail. gnome-terminal wouldn't open, xterm wouldn't open, menus wouldn't respond. Etc.The entire GNOME desktop was inoperable.

Logging out and choosing Fluxbox and KDE didn't help. I was sent right back to the GDM login screen. Hmm... seems not related entirely to GNOME... if it all.From a terminal, I could see constant crashes, segfaults on libc6-2.11.1..While at it, I logged on another account (my wife's) and everything was perfectly FINE, with no issues at all. Creating them another account and initializing, it also didn't happen any segfaults. However, everytime I logged in my own account, everything would happen again... nautilus respawning, no terminal, nothing, not even logout would work. Either I hit a MAJOR BUG in libc6 current ubuntu compile, or a setting file inside my home dir got really corrupted and screwed up. It was very frustrating, because this bug was a show stopper. For those who concern, my mobo is an Asus M3A78-EM running a ATI HD 3200 IGP, and I have ubuntu-default fglrx running.

I had run memtest+ overnight and no errors whatsoever. The fact that this was an "account specific" issue deems that there is no hardware fault. I had to migrate my old account to a newly created account, it was hard work because of my 100GB files. Setting ownership in each of them, etc. Everything is OK now, but I really wished to know what dimmed out my bright Lucid Lynx experience yesterday. And I just hope this doesn't happen again.

CentOS 5 :: Yum Segmentation Fault

Apr 11, 2011

I did a Yum update last Friday. It was done before 5.6 was released so I still have 5.5 + various updates. Yum is now giving me a segmentation fault when I try to run it. I believe it has to do with an improperly synchronized version of sqlite which was updated and then Yum stopped working. I'm guessing that installing the latest Yum RPM will fix the dependency issues. Will this throw me out of sync with for instance updating to 5.6?

Server :: Can't Log Into Centos - 766 Segmentation Fault

Mar 5, 2010

I have a centos server running nagios for monitoring. I restarted the machine, it is actually a console server anyway. After getting to the login screen, I typed in my user name but it never propt for my password. I can't even ssh into the system. So I tried to use the installation cd and enter into rescue mode where I typed chroot and was able to enter into the root environment. I was able to configure a network interface in the rescue mode and can ping the machine at this point, though can ssh still. In the root environment, I tried running couple commands. like try to restart the sshd. When I typed /etc/init.d/sshd restart, I got an error saying:

766 segmentation fault.

when I vi any thing I get error:

segmentation fault.

how can I solve this problem? What is causes this. Even in the event of restarting the machine, I see so many fails with segmentation fault.

CentOS 5 :: Gdb Segmentation Fault In Preemptible Kernel

Aug 3, 2011

I have built a CentOS 5.6 kernel with the Preemption Model changed from Voluntary to Preemptible Kernel. Everything works fine except for gdb. When attempting to debug a binary using start or run there is a segmentation fault. If I attach to a running process everything works fine. I expect that I need to make an additional change to the kernel config file, but don't know what it might be. I'm using menuconfig to make the changes: Processor type and features --->Preemption Model ---> [x] Preemptible Kernel (Low-Latency Desktop).

gdb /bin/true
(gdb) run
Starting program: /bin/true
During startup program terminated with signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation Fault.

General :: Segmentation Fault For Centos Mail Server?

My centos linux mailserver has crushed and does not allow any login form any user including root. I have managed to start it in single user mode but using vi editor, df command gives segmentation fault. I suspect the /var/* is full but I can neither remove any file/folder/mail/logs nor copy these to make a backup.Attempt to do this as single user/root is met with readonly files yet I have given full permissions to the files and the folders.

CentOS 5 Networking :: Advanced - TCP Segmentation Offloading & Udev?

Dec 23, 2009

I'm trying to disable TCP Segmentation offloading across the board in our datacenter to improve performance. Reading the history in the CentOS Bugzilla and the upstream's Bugzilla, they recommend doing this within the udev rules. See:[URL].. So, I created a new udev rules file that looks like this, as filename /etc/udev/rules.d/50-eth_tso.rules:

ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="net", NAME=="eth0", RUN+="/sbin/ethtool -K eth0 tso off"
ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="net", NAME=="eth1", RUN+="/sbin/ethtool -K eth1 tso off"


Can anyone out there figure out just what I'm doing wrong - I've been struggling with this for about 2 hours trying to make it work, and simply can not figure it out - and would like to not resort to hacking the problem and adding the ethtool commands to /etc/rc.d/rc.local!

CentOS 5 :: Cron Errors - Segmentation Fault, Floating Point Exception

Dec 7, 2009

I'm running CentOS 5.4.In the last three days I've started to get various cron errors:

/bin/sh: line 1: 7066 Segmentation fault /usr/local/scripts/cron.email.sshd.access/cron.email.sshd.access.pl
/bin/sh: line 1: 4822 Floating point exceptionsudo -u mobile getmail --quiet
Can't load '/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/i386-linux-thread-multi/auto/RRDs/RRDs.so'


Then yesterday I rebooted, and all the other errors seemed to have disappeared for now, but, I am now getting:

/bin/sh: line 1: 23600 Segmentation fault sudo -u mobile getmail --quiet

I have setup cron to call getmail once every 3 minutes, and I get this error about 4-6 times an hour.

Software :: Apache2 Error.log Seg Faults?

Jan 12, 2009

On my Debian Etch server, I'm finding a lot of the following in my /var/log/apache2/error.log file:

[Mon Jan 12 09:34:17 2009] [notice] child pid 17217 exit signal Segmentation fault (11)
[Mon Jan 12 09:34:18 2009] [notice] child pid 17206 exit signal Segmentation fault (11)

What is a good way to trouble shoot and remedy this problem? We can't have processes dying all over the place, now can we.

Programming :: ANSI C Code Seg-faults When Unsigned Int Variable Is Used?

Feb 20, 2011

I'm writing a tridiagonal solver for sparse linear systems and I coded this decreasing loop:

PHP Code:

xx[NN - 1] = gamma[NN - 1]*BB[NN - 1];
ii = NN - 2;
/* Compute the x values: */
while (ii >= 0) {
xx[ii] = gamma[ii]*(BB[ii] + xx[ii + 1]);
ii = ii - 1;

now... if ii is declared as an unsigned integer, the code gives me a segmentation fault, but if I declare it as an int, it doesn't. Using DDD I noticed that, as an unsigned int variable, when I finally decrease it, it underflows and blows up to a huge value, ergo giving me an unaccesible direction for xx in the following iteration! I taugh me not to use unsigned int variables for dereasing loops! XD

General :: Logrotate Httpd Log Files ?

Jan 11, 2010

I need to logrotate logs in directories in /var/log/httpd/.

There are 4 directories in /var/log/httpd/... these directories are /var/log/httpd/access/ /var/log/httpd/debug/ /var/log/httpd/error/ /var/log/httpd/required/

Each of the access, required, error and debug directories have around 20 to 30 access log files of different locations for example:mumbai-access.log, pune-access.log etc..same is the case for 'error' dir 'required' dir and 'debug' dir in /var/log/httpd/

I need to clean up the logfiles in all the 4 directories access, error, debug and required...

I have made a custom logrotate file as follows:

Is the above config correct?

Am I missing something? Will this logrotate the files in /var/log/httpd/access, /var/log/httpd/error, /var/log/httpd/required and /var/log/httpd/error ?

Do i need to include following line in postrotate " /bin/kill -HUP `cat /var/run/httpd.pid 2>/dev/null` 2> /dev/null || true" ?

General :: Logrotate - Purpose Of Rotate And Postrotate?

Jul 10, 2010

I have been trying out in learning with logrotate command and logrotate configuration file )logrotate.conf custom logfile for an process is 'test.log'


#cat /etc/logrotate.d/test
/var/log/test.log {
rotate 4


whenever the log file (test.log) exceeds 100M a new file will be created with the file name as test.'date'.'gz'(new file is created with a current date and in a compressed format of gz) and also with permission mentioned above). I really dont know what is the role of rotate( will this be carried on only for next 4times i mean upto 400MB; (4times*file reaches 100MB)? and also what could be the purpose of postrotate?
