The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 485
Segmentation fault when trying to access mp3 directory.
Last modified: 2005-02-07 08:40:24 UTC
I get a segmentation fault when I try to access my shared mp3 directory
(shared from a linux box via Samba) from a Windows box.
I've seen somebody else mention this so I'm pretty sure that this has to do
with mp3 files:
The weird thing is that if I create a new directory and share it I can access
it just fine, then I tried to copy a few of my mp3 files into that directory
and had no problem. So the problem doesn't happen every time an mp3 directory
is shared, there needs to be something else to it.
Following is the mail I get if I try accessing the directory:
From root@pandora-stfs Mon Sep 22 10:40:12 2003
Subject: Segfault in Samba
From: root <root@pandora-stfs>

The Samba 'panic action' script, /usr/share/samba/panic-action,
was called for pid 1296 ().
This means there was a problem with the program, such as a segfault.
However, the executable could not be found for process 1296.
It may have died unexpectedly, or you may not have permission to
debug the process.
Please let me know if I can be of more assistance.
I'll be attaching a text file with the output of "ls -l" of the directory in
question in case you guys might notice any issues with any characters or such.
Kind regards, Stefan.

The output from "ls -l" in the directory that can't be shared
I tried for the fun of it to rename all the files and folders that contained
Icelandic letters (such as á,í,ó,ð or þ) to
pure ascii named files but that didn't work... I still got the seg fault.
There should at least be a backtrace in the logfiles. Can you include it?
