Bug#610424: apache2: segfault after installation with tasksel
After installing the webserver task with tasksel, apache starts but crashes
after a couple of microseconds, /var/log/apache2/error.log gets filled with
messages like this:
[Tue Jan 18 13:04:38 2011] [notice] child pid 25732 exit signal Segmentation fault (11)
There are about 32 messages a second, they are all the same but the child pid
increases by 1 each message.
Probably not related but /var/log/apache2/access.log starts with 15 messages
::1 - - [18/Jan/2011:12:49:09 +0100] "OPTIONS * HTTP/1.0" 200 152 "-" "Apache/2.2.16 (Debian) (internal dummy connection)"
There are 5 messages each second and between each group of 5 there are 3 seconds
I am running apache on a virtual machine (a xen domU), maybe that has something
to do with it.
After running "service apache2 restart" everything works fine and there are no
more messages like this.
