Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 214901
freeradius dies when sent a SIGHUP
Last modified: 2008-05-06 12:46:11 EDT
Description of problem: freeradius dies, (possibly with a SEGV) when you send it
a SIGHUP. According to the man page, radiusd is supposed to re-read its
configuration files when you do this.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 1.1.3-1
How reproducible: Every time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. service radiusd start
2. kill -1 $radiusd_pid (put in the correct pid here)
Actual results: freeradius tries to reload the configuration files, and then
dies. I am attaching the output from radiusd -X at the end of this report.
Expected results: radiusd should just re-read the config files, and then go
about its business

Please have a look at http://people.redhat.com/twoerner/BZ/214901/
This package should fix your porblem.
Wrong bz entry, sorry.
Is there a package that I should be looking at, or was that supposed to be a
post to a different package. (I have to apologize for not being familiar with
the term bz.)
Please have a look at freeradius-1.1.7-2.fc6 package in FC-6-testing it should
solve your problem.
transferred from Thomas Woerner to John Dennis, requested by Steve Grubb.
I have the latest version from FC6, 1.1.7-3.1.fc6, installed. That seems to
have fixed the problem.
Thank you very much.
