Bug#227357 Debian upgrade Woody -> Sarge, Apache broken


I am experiencing THIS bug:
http://lists.debian.org/debian-apach.../msg00243.html

I have a "Syntax OK" from apachectl configtest. Any attempt to start Apache from /etc/init.d or apachectl fails. NOTHING is logged to /var/log/apache/error.log or syslog/messages.

This is Server version: Apache/1.3.29 (Debian GNU/Linux)

I even went the horrible, reprehensible way and rebooted to make sure there were no locks or pids hanging around. Same problem: won't start.

Here's the end of strace apache -X -F:

Code:
connect(6, {sa_family=AF_UNIX, path="/var/run/.nscd_socket"}, 110) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
close(6)                                = 0
open("/etc/hosts", O_RDONLY)            = 6
fcntl64(6, F_GETFD)                     = 0
fcntl64(6, F_SETFD, FD_CLOEXEC)         = 0
fstat64(6, {st_mode=S_IFREG|0644, st_size=316, ...}) = 0
old_mmap(NULL, 4096, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_ANONYMOUS, -1, 0) = 0x404c0000
read(6, "127.0.0.1\tllamakc\tlocalhost\n192."..., 4096) = 316
read(6, "", 4096)                       = 0
close(6)                                = 0
munmap(0x404c0000, 4096)                = 0
socket(PF_UNIX, SOCK_STREAM, 0)         = 6
connect(6, {sa_family=AF_UNIX, path="/var/run/.nscd_socket"}, 110) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
close(6)                                = 0
open("/etc/hosts", O_RDONLY)            = 6
fcntl64(6, F_GETFD)                     = 0
fcntl64(6, F_SETFD, FD_CLOEXEC)         = 0
fstat64(6, {st_mode=S_IFREG|0644, st_size=316, ...}) = 0
old_mmap(NULL, 4096, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_ANONYMOUS, -1, 0) = 0x404c0000
read(6, "127.0.0.1\tllamakc\tlocalhost\n192."..., 4096) = 316
close(6)                                = 0
munmap(0x404c0000, 4096)                = 0
stat64("/dev/urandom", {st_mode=S_IFCHR|0444, st_rdev=makedev(1, 9), ...}) = 0
--- SIGSEGV (Segmentation fault) @ 0 (0) ---
+++ killed by SIGSEGV +++
Ideas?

Fixed. I used /etc/apt/preferences

Code:
Package: *
Pin: release a=stable
Pin-Priority: 1001

Package: *
Pin: release a=testing
Pin-Priority: 900
...edited /etc/apt/sources.list to point back to Stable, and did apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade. For those crazy enough to try this let me warn you it is a bumpy ride. You will need to dpkg -i --force-overwrite /path/to/foo.deb several packages and hammer away with apt-get -f install and apt-get dist-upgrade several times.

MySQL, Mailman, and Apache were b0rKed and took some tinkering to get back running.

Every time I try Debian Testing I am disappointed. I have had more luck with bugs being fixed on Unstable time and time again.

i upgraded to testing with no problem. after pointing sources.list to testing, apt-get update, i first upgraded libc6, perl, etc. :

# apt-get upgrade libc6 perl dpkg apt-utils apt

then the apt-get dist-upgrade, and then install/upgrade apache and my other apps. worked like a charm.

afaik, testing is pretty stable, isn't it? and are you saying if you change the sources.list back to stable and then dist-upgrade, you can actually revert your system and apps to a previous debian? (debian ) thanks

Yep, you can downgrade, but its a real PITA. The upgrade was no big deal other than the apache error that had a bug report filed against it. Though your way was successful, Debian should successfully upgrade w/o extra steps by just the dist-upgrade. However I encountered that problem.

Anyway, I'm back to stable and I've pinned Mailman to 2.1.3-2 and all is working.
