I wrote a small script to get the output of
sensors and other various data, and I was surprised to see that after a while, it began segfaulting... Quick investigation with
gdb showed the culprit to reside in
libc6-i686... Funny thing,
reportbug also showed the exact same segmentation fault. There you go. I therefore installed
debsums, checked the library, and bingo !
vincent@server:~$ debsums libc6-i686 /lib/tls/i686/cmov/ld-2.3.6.so OK /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libanl-2.3.6.so OK /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libBrokenLocale-2.3.6.so OK /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libc-2.3.6.so FAILED
There was a checksum mismatch there... I reinstalled the library, and everything appears to work fine. But, that doesn't explain yet the crashes. I'm just afraid that my hard drives are slowly giving way, which would be very disappointing provided that they are brand new (6 month !) and not heavily used (though, maybe, in a warm environment). I'll check that later on.
