Segfault in libc


Last week I installed a new server with slackware-12.2
root@mail:~# uname -a
Linux mail 2.6.27.7-smp #2 SMP Thu Nov 20 22:32:43 CST 2008 i686 Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 440 @ 2.00GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux

Configured it so it would be our new server.

But when it's been taken online we see qmail-smtpd crashing.
This happens about in 1 of 100 messages, but sometimes there are no crashes for 1000 of messages?

This is what I see in /var/log/messages:
Feb 15 04:39:40 mail kernel: qmail-smtpd[15975]: segfault at edf158 ip b7e01a90 sp bfd20a30 error 6 in libc-2.7.so[b7d96000+145000]
Feb 15 04:39:56 mail kernel: qmail-smtpd[16034]: segfault at f66158 ip b7e88a90 sp bfaa7fc0 error 6 in libc-2.7.so[b7e1d000+145000]

The server is now online, and I'm trying to reproduce this error, however
I send 10516 messages already without a single error.
--> so it's hard to reproduce.


Can someone help me to fix this problem.
(are there know problem with this hardware and libc?)

Best regards,
Pascal

It's possible, but extremely unlikely that this is a problem with the ardware or glibc. It sounds like a race condition of some sort. You should talk to the qmail devs about it.
