strace of portmap -vd (71.25 KB, text/plain)

Description Viraj Alankar 2001-01-26 00:58:50 UTC
When having the following in root's .bashrc:

ulimit -n 90000

starting portmap, then doing rpcinfo -p causes portmap to crash. Also doing

strace /sbin/portmap -vd

segfaults on a select call with a very large file descriptor set. I don't
know if this is a bug in glibc or portmap. Any help appreciated.

It tries a huuuge select call, and dies doing that... jakub?

Comment 3 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-01-30 18:12:44 UTC
Note - none of this happens on a rawhidish system w/2.4 kernel and glibc 2.2

Comment 4 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-02-11 22:34:06 UTC
Fixed in newer versions of Red Hat Linux.
