Segfault using rsyslogd 7.4.5

Postby dvoita » Wed Oct 30, 2013 11:57 pm


I'm using the rsyslog provided rpms (rsyslog-7.4.5-1.el6.x86_64) and get a segfault when trying to start /sbin/rsyslogd. Here's what I see:

Code: Select all
8085 Segmentation fault      (core dumped) /sbin/rsyslogd -i /var/run/

$ gdb /sbin/rsyslogd core.8085


Core was generated by `/sbin/rsyslogd -i /var/run/'.
Program terminated with signal 11, Segmentation fault.
