iaxmodem exit with SIGSEGV

  • Anonymous - 2012-01-19

    HI All,

    I'm using iaxmodem 1.2 on a debian squeeze (kernel 3.1.5) CPU (Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU           X5670  @ 2.93GHz) machine with hylafax. I'm running iaxmodem in daemon mode
    When my server runs for about 2 or 3 days some iaxmodems has been exit with status  0xB (SIGSEGV). When this happens that modem no longer works and it appears to be wedge for hylafax

    I found it on iaxmodem log file in /var/log/iaxmodem as below

    iaxmodem process 22395 ended, status 0xB

    Is this a a bug in iaxmodem or hardware issue (RAM)?

    I have another server which is not that much busy as above server it doesn't have this problem.

    I don't know of any iaxmodem installation where it segfaults with any regularity as you've described.  I would consider that a hardware problem may certainly be a possibility.  However, iaxmodem is not guaranteed to be bug-free, either.  So if you could determine how to reproduce the fault and get logs for the fault, that would help resolve it.
