Description Henri Schlereth 2001-02-07 09:14:00 UTC
As part of security testing and to keep track of internal machine I times I
run rup. All 4 of my RH70 boxes respond. I have started rstatd on the
beta3 boxes and
it starts just fine but immediately stops w/o an error logged.

Comment 1 Glen Foster 2001-02-08 16:03:43 UTC
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Gold release

Comment 2 Bob Matthews 2001-02-09 18:29:39 UTC
Can you start the rstatd using strace(1) and attach the output to the bug

Comment 3 Bob Matthews 2001-02-09 21:32:52 UTC
This is a SEGV during a call to daemon(3).

Comment 4 Jakub Jelinek 2001-02-13 13:16:17 UTC
Bob, can you please be more verbose about why you think it segfaults in daemon?
Have you received any strace and/or debugged this a little bit?
I don't see how a program could crash in daemon (unless it is linked
against -lpthread and for some reason thread local register is broken
but rpc.rstatd is not linked against -lpthread).

Comment 5 Bob Matthews 2001-02-13 17:40:08 UTC
Jakub, this was my mistake.  I saw the segv after the daemonize call and assumed
that it was happening there.  But, a little more investigation shows that the
child process is segfaulting long after the return from fork.

I will try and fix this quickly, and if I can't will reclassify as rusers bug.

Comment 6 Bob Matthews 2001-02-13 23:07:14 UTC
/proc/stat layout has changed in 2.4 kernels.  Patch attached.

Bob, patch will be pulled into the next rusers build.  Thanks!
