Thread-topic: "Segfault/illegal instruction" - udevd - ntpd - glibc
Hi all,

I am working with two MIPS based boards (one is MIPS and the other is
MIPSEL) running linux-2.6.18/glibc-2.3.5. I am performing a consecutive
reboot test on these boards. After some number of reboots (say 80) I  am
getting "segmentaion fault/illegal instruction" while running udevd and
ntpd during bootup. Upon observing the core dump, it is noted that the
segfault occured from the _init function of libnss_dns.so (in the case
of ntpd) and libnss_compat.so (in the case of udevd). I assume that
there might be a problem somewhere in the call_init function in
glibc-2.3.5/elf/dl-init.c. After I put some printf statements for
debugging in the call_init function, there is no segfault/illegal
instruction in the reboot testing. I have also used gdb to debug the
problem but the "segfault/illegal instruction" doesn't occur during the
reboot test. Could anyone please help me to sort out this problem. The
gdb output using coredump is attached.

Any help will be appreciated
Firos
