====Trying to Install iRedMail-0.8.5 on CentOS 6.2 using https://bitbucket.org/zhb/iredmail/down … .5.tar.bz2
installation failed with the following when iRedMail.sh is executed:

starting with line 552 in the core dump

I have searched the Internet and the forum but am unable to figure out what to do.

Re: Core dump on CentOS 6.2 Install

I don't think iRedMail installation itself will cause core dump, there must be something wrong in your OS.

*) Is it a virtual machine like VMware/Xen/KVM/VirtualBox?
*) Does core dump happen every time when you install RPM package with yum?

Re: Core dump on CentOS 6.2 Install

Thanks for your reply.  This is on a dedicated server with 20 GB RAM and 1 TB hard drive.  Actually, yum worked fine when we fired up the server about a year ago.  Haven't installed anything since. Just tried 'yum list extras' and it worked fine but when I tried 'yum update python' it accessed the mirrors and then did a core dump.  Then  'yum list extras' accessed the mirrors and then did a core dump.  After 'yum clean all',  'yum list extras' worked again but 'yum update python' went back to a core dump.

I reinstalled yum using yum-3.4.3 (the latest version) and had the exact same result - Segmentation fault      (core dumped) ${YUM} -y --disablerepo=rpmforge,ius install $@ .

Do you think this is a yum problem and if so, do you have any suggestions?

Obviously, it's server problem. I suggest you reinstall your OS and try again.
