Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Strange Crash in OpenACS: ns_rand

Posted by Janine Ohmer on
Dan, I had the same problem once, on a new install.  I went around and around in circles trying to figure it out, including reinstalling several times.  Finally in desperation I installed exactly the same code on a different system;  no problems there.  The only difference was that the one that didn't work was running a slightly different version of Redhat than the others (and no, I'm afraid I don't remember what version it was).  I think it was a Postgres install, though I'm not 100% positive.

I know you're on Solaris so it's not directly related but it might be interesting to try it on a different system and see what happens.

Janine, I upgraded to aolserver 3.5.1 and the crash went away on solaris.  Possibly there was a bug in aolserver .  Hopefully, aol will adopt the i18n patches from aolserver3.3+ad13, so we can get back to using the latest version of aolserver for openacs.
