View Full Version : Segmentation Fault

10th April 2007, 03:00 PM
We have a system that we have been using for a long time running a mysql mirror on, however for some reason recently it decided to complain when it was booted with Segmentation Faults.

We have tried running a rescue from the DVD but alas this hasn't effected it in anyway.

The segmentation faults are mostly in /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit

All we require is access to the raided drives to recover the data, but have not been able to access them.

Does anyone have any suggestions about how to best either repair the system so that we can transfer the data or another way we can obtain access to the data and recover it.

Somebody please help me fix this! I have to have access to this machine soon!

I am having the same issue. I haven't yet found a solution, but I have found that it may be related (possibly) to a USB device, like a camera or thumb drive, not being unmounted properly....
Hope this helps. I'll post more if/when I find a solution.
By the way, I'm running FC6 (kernel
