Run time error *** glibc detected *** malloc(): memory corruption: on Linux

Hi,

I'm getting the following error on RHEL4 when I'm executing my binary.

*** glibc detected *** malloc(): memory corruption: 0x081b3378 ***

Earlier I was not getting this kind of error but suddenly I started getting this error. I'm executing this binary on opteron server.

Regards,
Sumanth

Shalom Sumanth,

So.

What changed?

The application?

The system was patched?

Disk problem and the binary got corrupted?

This is with the small amount of information given a detective story.

Try putting the error code into google.

can't believe this error just showed up out of nowhere if all was working properly before.

either there was an upgrade or a confid change in one of the involved components.
