Yeah postfix was upgraded too (from 2.5.x to 2.6.x).

You could try running

postfix upgrade-configuration  (or something like that, writing it out of memory)

/etc/init.d/postfix restart


The segfault is bad, but could always be caused from some config.

Hi Heiko

I see these 3 lines in /var/log/messages:
Sep 16 18:49:29 src@dl perl: pam_unix(webmin:auth): authentication failure; logname= uid=0 euid=0 tty= ruser= rhost=  user=root
Sep 16 18:49:35 src@dl httpd[7215]: segfault at 4a0e5ecc ip 4a0d2d02 sp 588041a8 error 7 in[4a0cc000+19000]
Sep 16 18:49:55 src@dl postfix/postfix-script[8515]: warning: not owned by root: /var/spool/postfix/pid

The first line recurs when I reboot with 1.4RC1, but the second and third do not. A segfault does not sound good? But it confirms that apache just would not run. Samba did run but I had problems getting access to some shares (others worked fine); could be down to Samba updates, I agree. Sorry I did not get to check postfix under 1.4RC2, I only just noticed this warning message now.

I have both a Samba and Apache server running with the grsec version.
Do you have any more details? Any error messages?
The samba version changed significantly in the latest testing release,  
maybe it doesn't like one of the options you have.
Quoting Dominic Raferd <>:
I can't seem to be able to run apache with the latest testing version of
1.4RC2, I guess this is because of grsec (in the past I have used DL's
server version)? Is this 'by design' or is it possible to use apache
with grsec? Samba also doesn't seem to be working right...
(I will move back to 1.4RC1-server....)
