Apache Segmentation Fault

Hi all,

The local electricity company did a triple yesterday on us and my slackware 10 box has taken a hit. (the UPS is not intelligent...)

After sorting out the filing system, something to do with Apache now is damaged. when I start Apache I get..

Line 199 12442 Segmentation fault (core dumped) $HTTPD.

so, for good or bad. I reinstalled Apache using the package manager, thinking it would re-write any damaged files or links etc.

still no joy...

I did a bit googleling, (like u do...) and using gdb and the coredump, and I get this..

This GDB was configured as "i486-slackware-linux"...(no debugging symbols found)
Using host libthread_db library "/lib/".

Core was generated by `/usr/sbin/httpd'.
Program terminated with signal 11, Segmentation fault.
#0 0x4099b600 in ?? ()

what's this telling me (in plain English!) any guidance would be gratefully received.

73 Mark

That gdb output doesn't make too much sense to me, but I'd be looking at the
libraries that apache is linked against as well as the actual binary.

You don't need to reinstall them all, btw. Just compare their sizes and
dates against their values in MANIFEST.bz2 (on your CDs).

Maybe something like this
ldd `which httpd`|awk '{print $1}' > files
bzcat /cdrom/slackware/MANIFEST.bz2 | egrep -f files
and compare the output to your system.
