Automount segfaults in do_mount_indirect
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:57 EST
Description of problem:
Automount occasionally segfaults in do_mount_indirect when trying to lookup
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run automounter for some time on system that automounts directories
for users with unknown gid's
The following small programs shows that return status from getpwuid_r and
getgrgid_r is not what one would expect:
int main(int argc, char *argv)
struct group gr;
struct group *pgr = &gr;
struct group **ppgr = &pgr;
struct passwd pw;
struct passwd *ppw = &pw;
struct passwd **pppw = &ppw;
int status = 0;
status = getpwuid_r(atoi(argv), ppw, tmp, 2048, pppw);
printf("Status:%d ppw:%20p pppw:%20p *pppw=%p\n", status, ppw, pppw, *pppw);
status = getgrgid_r(atoi(argv), pgr, tmp, 2048, ppgr);
printf("Status:%d pgr:%20p ppgr:%20p *ppgr=%p\n", status, pgr, ppgr, *ppgr);
Status == 0 and *ppgr == NULL
Status != 0 when *ppgr == NULL, but the manpages are a bit vague...
Created attachment 148414 [details]
check both status and pointer return from getpwuid_r and getgrgid_r
Oh boy, I missed that.

Thanks for your effort in describing the bug.
On further investigation this behaviour seems to be
common with the "xxx_r" functions. I've checked my
usage of all of them and the password and group calls
are the only ones where I don't account for it. Except
for strerror_r calls, but we should always have a valid
errno in those cases.
I'll fix it and get an update out.
Is this what causes autofs-5.0.1-0.rc3.24.x86_64 to crash where
autofs-5.0.1-0.rc3.22 works (rawhide), or should I file a separate bug? AFAICT
glibc reports a buffer overflow, but I can't figure out how to stop automount
from forking into background. I was hoping -d would do that, but no luck :-(
Same problem on rc3.23 on F6, FWIW.

Don't think so.
Think that was the "add "@network" and .domain.name export check."
update added in 0.rc3.24. Sorry.
Use 5.0.1-2 please.

Oops, I'm confused.
I was talking about the Rawhide revision.
I've pushed autofs-5.0.1-0.rc3.25 to testing today.
Can you check and see if that revision resolves this
Works OK here (i.e. I get the expected 'do_mount_indirect: failed to get group
info from getgrgid_r'), thanks!
