If you get the message “
” in your log files,
it means that Samba got an unexpected signal while running. It is probably a
segmentation fault and almost certainly means a bug in Samba (unless
you have faulty hardware or system software).
If the message came from smbd, it will probably be accompanied by
a message that details the last SMB message received by smbd. This
information is often useful in tracking down the problem, so please
include it in your bug report.
You should also detail how to reproduce the problem, if
possible. Please make this reasonably detailed.
You may also find that a core file appeared in a
subdirectory of the directory where you keep your Samba log
files. This file is the most useful tool for tracking down the bug. To
use it, you do this:
gdb smbd core
adding appropriate paths to smbd and core so gdb can find them. If you
do not have gdb, try
. Then within the debugger,
use the command
to give a stack trace of where the
problem occurred. Include this in your report.
If you know any assembly language, do a
of the routine
where the problem occurred (if it's in a library routine, then
disassemble the routine that called it) and try to work out exactly
where the problem is by looking at the surrounding code. Even if you
do not know assembly, including this information in the bug report can be
