Subject segmentation faults - mod_perl?
Date Sun, 19 Apr 2009 02:19:20 GMT

I'm attempting to use Apache2-AuthenRadius-0.6, with Apache 2.0.59, which 
requires mod_perl. I installed both and it's working to a point, but 
Apache is generating Segmentation faults (on Solaris 10 SPARC). It seems 
I can successfully authenticate, but when Apache attempts to displayed my 
index page (index.cgi - a perl CGI script) I get the segmentation fault:

  child pid 4967 exit signal Segmentation fault (11)

where pid 4967 is the apache process handling the request. The index page 
never displays. If I manually enter url.../index.cgi, it runs fine.

I suspect mod_perl might be the cause. The documentation for AuthenRadius 
states need to enable the appropriate call-back hook when making 

   perl Makefile.PL PERL_AUTHEN=1

But when I run that, it says:

Configuring Apache/2.0.59 mod_perl/2.0.4 Perl/v5.8.4
'PERL_AUTHEN' is not a known MakeMaker parameter name.


WARNING: PERL_AUTHEN is not a known parameter.
Note (probably harmless): No library found for -liconv

Otherwise, configure runs and I'm able to run make. Any thoughts as to 
what the problem might be? I'm stumped. I don't really need or want 
mod_perl otherwise, but mod_auth_xradius won't compile on Solaris, and 
mod_auth_radius-2.0 doesn't support failover!
