Description:You used to be able to reload asterisk after making config changes. Now after the 3rd time or so asterisk crashes every single time.


Just do several reloads and asterisk will crash and dump a core.

If it's dumping a core, please get a backtrace from the core file, as shown in the instructions.  We need a backtrace to be able to diagnose where the cause is.

Plus, which specific * version?
which cli.c Rev?
We have a field for the version, that would be great if you can fillup correctly a bug, when you report a bug.
Just that small info can't really help us.

Just do what corydon said, and we'll take a look.

Thanks for the report.

It seems straight forward to me on how to reproduce the bug. This is the first time I reported a bug, since it seems to be a very serious one. Please point me to the instructions you are refering to. This bug is present in the current CVS head and 1.2.x.

take a look at README.backtrace, probably located in /usr/src/asterisk/doc/ )

Well, in trying to figure out how to reproduce this every time and getting the necessary info, I found what causes the problem. The crash only occurs when the chan_ooh323.so module is loaded. When I take this out, repeated reloads work fine. So, this is not a serious bug after all in asterisk itself. It seems to be a bug in the ooh323 module. Thanks for the info and if you would like you can close this issue or at least reduce the severity.

Severity is fine.  This bug has been assigned to the developer responsible for ooh323

Does this bug still exist in svn trunk?
