Hi Mr. Zahkarevich. I'm sorry to bother you but I'm stuck on getting an Apache webserver (2.4.41) running due to a segfault occurring in Math-Pari: httpd[25688]: segfault at e ip 00007f229009654f sp 00007ffe675a65e0 error 4 in Pari.so[7f2290042000+313000] I've spent a couple of days trying to figure out the problem and haven't been able to do it. I've setup previous servers using Centos 6 with the same setup and while there were some hiccups along the way I was always able to get Math-Pari running. In this case, the server is Centos 6.10 running on a Proliant dl360 G5 server. I've compiled Apache 2.4.41 with mod_perl-2.0.11 and libapreq2-2.13 and have included Crypt-Random-1.52. I tried using the yum versions of these programs but got the segmentation error so I then downloaded Math-Pari from metacpan along with Crypt-Random and ran perl Makefile.PL, make and make install on them. I also tested Math-Pari and it passed. I also compiled pari-2.3.5 which was downloaded into the Math-Pari directory and installed it. Also, Apache is running as prefork - here is the output on that: Server MPM: Prefork -D APACHE_MPM_DIR="server/mpm/prefork" I've attached a text file with the backtrace on the Apache core dump. The key lines from that are set forth below. Also, I've tried using the older versions of Math-Pari and pari which worked on the Centos 6.4 server we have running with essentially the same setup but none of those worked. Any help you could give me to figure out the problem would be great as I have to use the perl module Crypt-Random in the setup, which in turn relies on Math-Pari.

I won’t be able to help with the Apache side, but do you have an idea which Math::Pari code has been running before this time? By default, Math::Pari should have been compiled with the -DDEBUG_PARI. Then one can do Math::Pari::PARI_DEBUG_set(1); and get a bit more info about our dirty manipulations with the PARI stack. All I can see is that the fault happened during the global destruction, when one of PARI object was left on the PARI stack. (Which, I think, is normal.) Do not know whether this may help you… Yours, Ilya

Hi Ilya, I really appreciate you getting back to me so quick. I feel like an idiot on this. I thought for sure apache had been compiled with the prefork MPM because that is supposed to be the default for Unix installs and when I ran httpd -V | grep MPM it showed up with the "Server MPM: Prefork" response I sent you. But after I emailed you I ran the httpd -l command just to be sure and it showed that the event.c module had been compiled in instead of the prefork.c module. So when I recompiled Apache with the --with-mpm=prefork option and restarted Apache, everything worked as it should. Again, really sorry for bothering you on this and I also appreciate how quickly you got back to me.
