rdiff-backup segfaults when run on a 64-bit kernel
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:15:38 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):
Every time so far.
Dunno if it's actually kernel. But that seems to be the common
So, turning off:
"Unused PCI Slot clock"
"Cool & Quiet Support"
in the BIOS magically fixes everything.
OK, it's just Cool&Quiet being enabled that triggers the bug.
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'.
