Last modified: 2008-10-15 22:09:36 EDT
Description of problem:
winbindd crashes with core file.
Just restarted winbindd 5 minutes ago and have again 4 core files (which fills
up the filesystem quite fast).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
core file attached.
Can you please try the packages available soon at
samba-3.2.2-0.19.fc9 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 9.

winbindd crash output
This winbindd has at least 2 problems:
1. It crashes when started as "winbindd -i" on a command line. See attached log.
2. It prevents users (even root-user) to log in to the system via ssh or on a local console.

Ok, the second effect results from the first.
Can we have a core file of a crashing winbindd ?
Just tested -0.18 again, and noticed, that it dumpcores the same way as -0.19.
But in contrast to -0.19, -0.18 lets users log in.
regarding comment #9:
> Ok, the second effect results from the first.
Just to clarify, the crashdump in -0.18 and -0.19 happened (and it's not nice), but then 0.18 continued, while 0.19 prevent logins.
So, I don't think that the crash is the primary reason for the regression.
We just switched back to 0.18. Would a core dump of that help you?
Yes, a core file of the -0.19 winbind please.
Ok, we identified one error in the patch.

Forget comment #13, take packages from here:
-0.20 winbindd works so far without dumped cores
still no coredumps, but looks good from here
