Segment violation on sendmail execution with new glibc upgrade
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:59:28 EDT
Description of problem:
After last update throught rhn from glibc-2.3.2-4.80.6 to glibc-2.3.2-
4.80.8, sendmail cannot start (sendmail-8.12.8-9.80). On command:
sendmail -bd -q1
I obtains this (Spanish):
violacion de segmento.
English: segment violation.
On downgrade all works fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Installing new glibc upgrade packages from rhn.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Upgrade glibc from rhn. glibc-2.3.2-4.80.6 to glibc-2.3.2-4.80.8.
2.Restart sendmail (sendmail-8.12.8-9.80)
On other two systems with RH8.0 this update provide no errors on

The fact that the same code works in your other environments shows
it's something specific for this system, maybe even caused by that
system. What did sendmail load? Any milters? Look at the
/proc/*/maps entry. Run sendmail within a debugger or at least let it
create a core file and look at it.
Ping. Do you still see the problem? Can you run the debugger? If it
crashes in memory handling, can you run the program under valgrind?
If we don't get any feedback I assume this is no real problem.
