On x86-64, libmysql segfaults if mysql_real_connect is called after mysql_options

Reported by: rainer Owned by: rainer
Priority: major Milestone: 2.3.3
Component: main Version: 2.3.2
Keywords: Cc:


There is a segfault in the libmysql library (tested: 4.1.15-1ubuntu5) on x86-64 if mysql_real_connect() is called after mysql_options(). The segfault is within mysql_real_connect(). As a result, yule will not startup on x86-64 if compiled with mysql support.

Probably mysql_options() should be avoided on x86-64 (?).

A search on Google indicates that this problem has existed in earlier versions of libmysql as well, though apparently not specific to the x86-64 architecture.

The problem can be fixed by deleting or commenting out in src/sh_database.c the line:

 mysql_options(db_conn, MYSQL_READ_DEFAULT_GROUP, _("samhain"));

Fixed in changeset [97] (don't use mysql_options on x86-64).
