Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 24997
portmap segfaults on extended ulimit
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:30:55 EDT
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?
Created attachment 8504 [details]
strace of portmap -vd
Note - none of this happens on a rawhidish system w/2.4 kernel and glibc 2.2
Fixed in newer versions of Red Hat Linux.
