Description wasquith 2000-03-06 15:22:24 UTC
Installation support told me to report this as a bug.
While running some small Perl/Tk apps, I am getting repeated Segmentation
Faults and Core Dumps.  These apps do not have problems on Irix,
Solaris, or Win98.  Though the crash is sort of random, I can get it to
repeat easy.  The /var/log/messages is reported the following snippet about
the exact same time as the seg fault:

modprobe: can't locate module block-major-22
          last message repeated 29 times

modprobe: can't locate module char-major-108
          last message repeated 19 times

The 'last ... times' repeats again and again with a different repeat count.
Running 6.1, on Dell Latitude CPi.  Everything else is working fine, except
the GNOME desktop which core dumps a lot so I switched to KDE several weeks
ago.  Thanks for the help.

The first is a complaint about /dev/hdc (caused by magicdev or automount,
perhaps, looking for disks to mount), the second message is a PPP thing. Neither
of these are relevant. What is dumping core - your apps or X? My guess is bugs
in either perl/Tk and/or your apps.

Closed - I assume it works in the current release. Reopen if not.
