Description Bill Nottingham 2005-01-15 01:01:21 EST
Description of problem:

rdiff-backup segfaults while backing up, but only
when run on a 64-bit kernel.

The matrix is:

32-bit rdiff-backup running on 32-bit kernel -> works
32-bit rdiff-backup running on 64-bit kernel (chroot) -> segfaults
64-bit rdiff-backup running on 64-bit kernel -> segfaults

The segfault is at random places in python.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Every time so far.

Dunno if it's actually kernel. But that seems to be the common
factor. :/

So, turning off:

"Unused PCI Slot clock"
"Cool & Quiet Support"

in the BIOS magically fixes everything.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2005-02-04 23:36:29 EST
OK, it's just Cool&Quiet being enabled that triggers the bug.
Comment 3 Dave Jones 2005-07-15 14:25:01 EDT
An update has been released for Fedora Core 3 (kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3) which
may contain a fix for your problem.   Please update to this new kernel, and
report whether or not it fixes your problem.

If you have updated to Fedora Core 4 since this bug was opened, and the problem
still occurs with the latest updates for that release, please change the version
field of this bug to 'fc4'.

Thank you.
