lsraid/raidtools fails segmentation violation after 100+days uptime
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:06 EDT
RH 9.0: /sbin/lsraid -A -p violates due to increasing line length in
/proc/partitions. Compiled line length is 100. in 'load_partitions()', opens
/proc/partitions and reads up to MAX_LINE_LENGTH. Since line lengths in
/proc/partitions can exceed 100 chs, susequent reads get rubbish read and result
is violation. Increasing MAX_LINE_LENGTH to 255 avoided problem and
stopped violation. (This was the version of raidtools downloaded from
I note that FC3 does not have as many columns in /proc/partitions and so would not
suffer from this problem

While this would be an easily fixable bug, this is not a security problem as
those tools are not setuid. Feel free to reopen and debate this again if at
some point we'll have to make a RHL9 update to raidtools for some other reason.
