Segmentation Fault on raspberry pi

Hello,

I have been running HA-Proxy version 1.7.5-2 2017/05/27 from the raspbian repo for several months without issue.

I’d like to now run a more up to date version on Centos for ARM so I’ve compiled both 1.9.0 and 2.0-dev4 on a fresh raspberry pi with CentOS 7 installed. However for both versions i get an immediate segmentation fault.

I dont really know what I’m doing with gdb but I tried running it with gdb and this is the output below; can anyone give me any insights as to what may be happening here?

TIA.
John.

Can you provide the output of haproxy -vv (unless that crashes also)?

here you go:

Can you try without the user and group directives in the configuration (keep using root)?

Running as root and no user/group in the cofig I still get a Segmentation Fault but there’s a diffferent output from gdb:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
[Switching to Thread 0x75e5bbf0 (LWP 1001)]

275		    unlikely(!_HA_ATOMIC_DWCAS(((void **)(void *)&_GET_NEXT(fd, off)), ((void **)(void *)&cur_list), (*(void **)(void *)&next_list))))

I’m investigating, it’s about threading.

Workaround for now is to disable threading by adding nbthread 1 to your global section.

You probably meant 1.9.8 because the bug was only introduced in that release (1.9.7 and older work fine).

I’ve filed a bug:

A fix has been committed to -dev and queued up for 1.9 (will be in the 1.9.9 release):

Thanks guys, built this version and its no longer crashing:

HA-Proxy version 2.0-dev4-c3b595-33 2019/05/27 - https://haproxy.org/

May you share your build steps for armv7 ?

I am trying to use the min version 1.9 too on Raspberry Pi

is it just:
make TARGET=custom

this worked:
make TARGET=custom
sudo make install

Please don’t use make TARGET=custom unless you really know what you are doing.

Use make TARGET=linux2628 if you are an Linux (which I assume you are).

CPU=generic is fine.
