Bug Description

Binary package hint: apache2

I installed linux 2.6.38-5 on lucid from kernel ppa. After this, gnome-user-share doesnt work. The issue is that apache doesn't start:

(98)Address already in use: make_sock: unable to listen for connections on address
no listening sockets available, shutting down
Unable to open logs
spawning httpd failed

With 2.6.37-12 apache starts.

affects: apache2 (Ubuntu) → linux (Ubuntu)

Thanks for reporting this bug.

I could not reproduce being unable to start apache2 on linux 2.6.38-5 under natty...

Re-targeting bug against gnome-user-share.

dave@bootie:~$ uname -r
dave@bootie:~$ curl localhost
curl: (7) couldn't connect to host
dave@bootie:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 start
 * Starting web server apache2
dave@bootie:~$ curl localhost

I dont't think the bug is in gnome-user-share.
The problem is that /usr/lib/apache2/mpm-worker/apache2 doesnt start on 2.6.38-5.
So, the big should be in the kernel or in apache.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. The issue that you reported is one that should be reproducible with the live environment of the Desktop CD of the development release - Oneiric Ocelot. It would help us greatly if you could test with it so we can work on getting it fixed in the next release of Ubuntu.
