If I try to upload bigger files, then after some time a blank pages appears and the file is not uploaded. I can't really reproduce this exactly files < 5mb seems to work, the file that failed was 37mb.

apache error log entry:

attachment.rb:148: [BUG] rb_gc_mark(): unknown data type 0x30(0xb2beb10) non object
ruby 1.8.6 (2008-08-08) [i686-linux]

production_log: (says absolutely nothing)

could this be related to this?

Apache 2.2.8 with mod_rails 2.0.6 with ruby enterprise edition

Redmine 0.8.1.stable.2521 (MySQL)
Ruby version 1.8.6 (i686-linux)
RubyGems version 1.3.1
Rails version 2.1.2


#1 Updated by Martin Tippmann over 8 years ago

it appears the error messages are kind of random - the problem is the same:

/opt/ruby-enterprise-1.8.6-20090201/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/activesupport-2.1.2/lib/active_support/callbacks.rb:271: [BUG] Segmentation fault
ruby 1.8.6 (2008-08-08) [i686-linux]

#2 Updated by Martin Tippmann over 8 years ago

i'll speak only with myself - but maybe someone will find this helpful:

it looks like a bug in ruby enterprise edition
after switching back to the centos ruby version uploads are working fine again.

#3 Updated by Jean-Philippe Lang over 8 years ago

  • Status changed from New to Closed
  • Resolution set to Cant reproduce

Thanks for the update.
I close this since it doesn't seem to related to Redmine. Reopen if needed.
