Subject: [gentoo-user] Apache not starting after upgrading Apache/glibc...
Date: Sat, 13 Apr 2019 12:21:01
1 Hi,
3 today, as usual on Saturdays, I ran "emerge -aNDuv @world" which succeeded
4 without any errors. As I noticed, there was an Apache upgrade from 2.4.38-r1
5 to 2.4.39, and a glibc upgrade from 2.27-r6 to 2.28-r5 (among others).
7 After upgrading, Apache won't start any more. "/etc/init.d/apache2 start" waits
8 (as long as I put "--wait 60000", for example, into the init script), and then
9 says "Apache failed to start". In /var/log/apache2/error_log, there is nothing.
11 Of course, I already asked Google and found some issues with /dev/random and
12 /proc/sys/kernel/random/entropy_avail - I installed "rngd" then, to avoid those
13 problems. I even disabled the "auth_digest" module. Doesn't help.
15 Starting Apache with "-e debug" shows loading a lot of Apache modules, and then
16 .... nothing happens any more. "ps -ef" shows just a single Apache process (where
17 there should be some more as usual. "netstat -lnp | grep -w 80" shows no listening
18 ports.
20 Downgrading to Apache 2.4.38 doesn't help either, and downgrading glibc seems
21 to be forbidden as "this will clearly break your system" (emerge says).
23 Now "admin-panic" is heavily arising. HELP! What can I do??
25 Thanks a lot,
27 -Matt
