Bug Description

Hi,

Today I updated my 8.04 system with the updates reported by the update manager. There were 94 updates overall. During the update few of the packages like compiz, gnome-system-tools etc failed reporting malloc error (displaying a memory map).

After the upgrade, I was not able to open any applications (when I tried on the command line it was crashing with the same memory map).

And reboot makes my system dead :( .. I cant even login to the single user mode since spawning of shell is itself crashing.

I was not able to copy the memory map when the apps were crashing.

Every update (each day's) is updated on my system. So the system contains all the lastest packages.

As of now I am going to download Alpha 6 and install from scratch..

thx.

I can confirm on an AMD64 system as well. Only 6 or so packages updated in the last couple of hours and left my system in a dead state. (I was testing to see if the latest 2.6.24.12.22 version of linux-image-2.6.24-12-generic had the sound drivers fixed, bug 200338.)

After reboot into 2.6.24-12-generic, it stalls at "Starting system logging daemon...".

Switching to second virtual console, typing in my user name results in "general protection" faults on all the security/pam_* modules. Don't even get to the password prompt. Just thrown back to a login prompt.

:(

Thank you for filing the bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. Can you check bug#201688 and bug #201684 and confirm whether you are facing similar errors? If so, this bug can be confirmed as duplicate of bug #201684 (as #201688 is also waiting for confirmation to be marked as duplicate). Thanks in advance.

Hi,

I just confirmed with the bug numbers listed here.

The situation is exactly similar to what is being reported in #201673

You can mark this bug as the duplicate of that bug.

I am getting the same memory map error as the bug #201673

Hope this helps.

thx.
