Description Matthew Stapleton 2013-02-14 02:31:40 UTC
ospfd in quagga-0.99.21 with hardened gcc-4.5.3 is occassionally crashing with execution attempt in: (null), 00000000-00000000 00000000 possibly more often when the network is unstable (running over a VPN link).  I was previously using 0.99.18 which didn't have a problem although it might not have been compiled with hardened gcc.  Is this bug similar to bug 355171 or something different?

Reproducible: Sometimes

I have downgraded to net-misc/quagga-0.99.20.  It will probably be a few days before I can tell if it is crashing as well.
Comment 2 Matthew Stapleton 2013-02-21 01:15:17 UTC
I've been running ospfd on net-misc/quagga-0.99.20 now for a few days without it crashing.

Sounds like a quagga issue that PaX is exposing.

It seems to me as upstream issue too. Please report it at, attach as much logs there, as you can
Comment 5 Sergey Popov gentoo-dev 2013-04-02 16:41:14 UTC
Oh, and by the way - try 0.99.22 when you sync next time
