sendmail newaliases segmentation fault at boot
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:34 EST
Description of problem:
During boot a segmentation fault was reported from newaliases
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Haven't been able to reproduce it.
Steps to Reproduce:
Starting sendmail: /etc/rc5.d/S80sendmail: line 116: 841
/usr/bin/newaliases >/dev/null 2>&1
[ OK ]
Starting sendmail: [ OK ]
I can not reproduce this.
I managed to get a core dump from a segfaulting newaliases command.
The core dump was produced by copying /usr/sbin/sendmail.sendmail to
/root/bin/newaliases, removing suid bit from the copy, and finaly
executing the command "while /root/bin/newaliases ; do true ; done".
This is a duplicate of bug #113830
