Forum OpenACS Q&A: Server don't start

Posted by Marc Kalberer on
I successufully installed, configure and run openacs on AOlserver4 (debian version aolserver4_4.0.10-3). Everything was running find until I update my system. Now impossible to start aolserver I got a
Starting web server: dotlrn start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --exec /usr/sbin/aolserver4-nsd --pidfile /var/run/aolserver4/ --oknodo -- -u www-data -g www-data -b -s dotlrn -t /etc/aolserver4/dotlrn.tcl

[25/Aug/2005:21:35:43][7433.1076592416][-main-] Fatal: received fatal signal 11
BUT, I have no trace: nothing in the log (?totally empty?), no other messages, nothing wrong with ldd -r, nothing flagrant with strace.

I just updated my system (I know that glibc has been updated)
I just installed the tsearch and openfts tools for postgres
I put a second serevr on it (but dont think it could be related, the tcl config file don't seems to be accessed .. confirmed by strace)

Since my system was updated I also tried to rebuild aolserver, no chance I get always this same stupid message.

Somebody got a direction ?

Solution was downgrading libc6
V. 2.3.5-4 broke something in aolserver
2.3.2 is OK ,
4 hours lost for this ....

Marc, did you ever find any more info on why upgrading libc6 from 2.3.2 to 2.3.5 broke AOLserver 4.0.10 ? If there's a bug in either libc6 or AOLserver I'd like to know more about it...
