sigsegv after several days running fine

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


I have a fedora box that was upgraded from 7.1.  After several days of
running fine, mozilla and up2date seg fault on launch sofar the only
ones that I have found that do. mplayer and xclock do not. a stacktrace
shows a mmap call failing.  I have exited changed runlevels to 3 from 4
( we auto start a display app on runlevel 4) and I cannot figure out
what to do to fix it short of a reboot.  I ran into mozilla segfaulting
as I was setting up this box and a reboot always fixed it and am
assuming that it will again.

The machine is still in this state and I would like to know what I need
to at least capture enough information to allow the gurus to find the

I am going to file a bug but though I would post here first to see if
anyone has any ideas.

What else should I do to allow for debugging?
