Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 125948
"child setpgid" bash errors after upgrading glibc
Last modified: 2016-11-24 09:54:05 EST
After upgrading to glibc-2.3.3-31.1, I get messages like this every
time I run a command in bash:
-bash: child setpgid (4602 to 46092): No such process
Downgrading to glibc-2.3.3-31 made the problem go away.
It appears that the new glibc also made "service start syslog" hang
while trying to start syslogd. After downgrading glibc I was able to
start the syslog service with no trouble.
I cannot reproduce this.
Maybe strace/ltrace dumps of the failing bash would help.
Pentium III Katmai 550MHz. Dual processors. Running all the current
Raw Hide bits. The machine on which the problem occurred is a semi-
production machine, so I can't really upgrade and downgrade glibc
again to product a dump. I'll try the next glibc version, and if it
persists, I'll capture some dumps for you.
Note that I don't have selinux configured; that may be relevant.
Note furthermore that I don't have a Red Hat or 2.6 kernel -- I'm
using 2.4.25-pac1. This is probably more relevant :-).
This is still broken in -39. I realize that this may be a lower
priority because I've got a nonstandard kernel, but (a) I thought
Fedora was supposed to work with non-standard kernels, and (b) as
noted in but 126936, I can't upgrade to the current Red Hat kernel
beacuse when I do my machine locks up hard almost instantaneously.
I'm beggin' you, help me out here :-).
We cannot help if you do not provide more information. Look at the
strace output and if necessary attach it to this bug. I see nothing
in the ChangeLogs from those days which can be attributed to the problem.
The problem is gone in glibc-2.3.3-63.
It's back in glibc-2.3.4-12. Wasn't present in glibc-2.3.4-10.
I don't see any problem and there is no information available from the reporter.
