Segmentation Faults and Core Dump from X
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:54 EDT
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.
