Description Ellen Shull 2008-06-03 03:36:59 EDT
Description of problem:

boinc terminated due to buffer overflow

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

[wes@pvr ~]$ rpm -qf `which boinc`
boinc-client-5.10.45-14.20080315svn.fc9.x86_64

All dependencies are current with f9 updates, but in case it's useful:
[wes@pvr ~]$ ldd `which boinc` | cut -f 3 -d " " | xargs rpm -qf | sort | uniq
cyrus-sasl-lib-2.1.22-13.fc9.x86_64
e2fsprogs-libs-1.40.8-3.fc9.x86_64
glibc-2.8-3.x86_64
keyutils-libs-1.2-3.fc9.x86_64
krb5-libs-1.6.3-10.fc9.x86_64
libcurl-7.18.1-1.fc9.x86_64
libgcc-4.3.0-8.x86_64
libidn-0.6.14-7.x86_64
libselinux-2.0.64-2.fc9.x86_64
libstdc++-4.3.0-8.x86_64
nspr-4.7.0.99.2-2.fc9.x86_64
nss-3.11.99.5-2.fc9.x86_64
openldap-2.4.8-3.fc9.x86_64
openssl-0.9.8g-9.fc9.x86_64
zlib-1.2.3-18.fc9.x86_64

How reproducible:

Only on first run.  Second+ runs, the bind to project has succeeded, but it then
fails repeatably in a different manner (see below)

This is my first attempt at using boinc, so I haven't done anything else.

Actual results:

(first run)

Thereafter if I just 'boinc' (since it says it's bound to the project
successfully), I get the same output as run #2 sans the "Already attached" line.

Additional info:

KDE4 desktop.  Upgraded from f8, old Xorg retained for evil nVidia binary
driver.  I could maybe see that being related to the secondary failure
(everything else runs peachy keen, though), but the first?
Comment 1 Milos Jakubicek 2008-06-04 03:10:11 EDT
Please start BOINC by "service boinc-client start", otherwise it tries using
your current working directory as its working directory and usually fails. See
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/MilosJakubicek/HowToUseBoinc for details.
