I am running a test on my machine in which I assigned a lot of IPs to some tap interfaces (created by me before the test) on my debian machine and tried to run curl commands with the source being these IPs. I get lots of seg faults similar to the following:
kernel: [14390.470990] curl: segfault at bf150ff0 ip b76aee93 sp bf150fd4 error 6 in libc-2.7.so[b75c4000+138000]
I even get segfaults while trying to do ssh to the machine, trying to create a file, and for a bunch of other commands. This is a Debian Lenny machine. I came across this debian bug report which concerns the same issue. It says that a workaround is to remove the "unstable" entry from sources.list. I don't haven't pointed it to unstable ever since the beginning. Could someone with more expertise in linux go through the link I gave and explain to me what is going on and what I should do to resolve this?
