Thread: aide conflicts with P/A

  1. #1

    Default aide conflicts with P/A

    Would someone else mind confirming this before I bug report it..

    This is really strange, so firstly this is an OSS pkg. So if it is installed, say

    zypper in aide
    aide --init will start it.

    Now this will crash with a seg fault as mentioned on the aide mailing list. Now after getting nowhere with gdb I happened to try strace now just before it failed I caught our friend PulseAudio.. Mmm strange I didn't think I had it enabled..

    So..
    Code:
    aide --init ; ps aux | grep pulse ; grep PULSE /etc/sysconfig/sound
    Returns
    Caught SIGBUS/SIGV. Exiting
    Aborted
    ps returns the grep and an instance of pulseaudio running
    PULSEAUDIO_ENABLE="no" from the sysconfig grep.
    Now if pulse is killed it still won't work(tried killall and pulseaudio --kill).. But if I do rm /dev/shm/pulse-shm-* this will then allow it to complete.

    So can someone confirm that this is the case for real hardware(Mine is Vmware) to, also does anyone know what is starting the instance of pulseaudio(So I can stop it)?
    Man first, have a try at Info, have a look at Wiki, if all that fails Scroogle!!!!!
    If I've helped click on the Rep button I don't know what it does but it sounds cool.

    This is the real problem I potentially ask some one in the community running on real hardware to confirm this.

    I've given instructions, stated what I'm seeing yet no one has stepped up to the plate. I'm even prepared to bug report but not till someone else confirms it.

    So why?

    What is it? That doesn't effect me, so I'll ignore it.

    Well one I have an instance of pulseaudio when I have it disabled this may have implications else where. Two this is an OSS package not from some repo, surely these are checked or given some kind of QA.

    Just to let you know your question is read. Can't help you since I managed to remove pulse completely. File the bug anyway if you thing it's a bug

    Thanks Knurpht

    I'm dubious of going straight to a bug report(One I've got an argument with ichain I lost) the other is why has no one else reported P/A is running though it should be disabled. Then combined with it is in vmware, so only gets booted to help someone, and isn't affecting me in day to day use.

    We're a few months into 11.1 now. Wish there was some decent documentation about the P/A implementation on Suse.

    Installed it with Yast on 11.1. Ran it as root from terminal as it failed from normal user with:
    Code:
    Permission denied
    No config defined
    Configuration error
    However with sudo, it ran for many minutes with lots of disk access (doing christ knows what?) and finally ended without any message from start to finish. No errors or seg fault. PulseAudio packages are installed. Does that help?

    Thankyou consused

    Guess I'll leave it then, I'm not sure what the cause is, but for me I can get around it by playing with the shm.

    Strange there is a mention on the aide mailing list to. Not being on real hardware I'll leave it, unless someone else can repeat it.
