Description NewUser2Linux 2015-04-17 09:47:04 UTC
Is there a known problem with the current release of mono-complete , mod_mono when installing on Oracle Linux 7 or Fedora Linux 21(3.19).

mono repo is  http://download.mono-project.com/repo/centos/

Following a fresh install of either version of Linux today, followed by yum update, then install of httpd, mono-complete and mod_mono. Edit httpd.conf to include a ServerName, no other changes as it already includes the instruction IncludeOptional conf.d/x.conf. httpdctl restart produces pretty much the same error showing in journalctl -xn

kernel: mono [ ]: segfault at 5 ip 0..50e9e0 sp 0..7fff37fc9f80 error 6 in mono-sgen [400000+36d000]

In addition in Fedora

Blacklisted package 'mono-core'

I am looking at running ASP.net websites on Linux/Apache instead of IIS and am new to this.

Closing this old issue under the assumption that it was fixed in the meantime, please reopen if you still see problems :)

As of 2017-06-01 this is still a problem.  I have a newly installed/updated RHEL 7 system, added the http://download.mono-project.com/repo/centos7/ repo.  Did a 
yum install mono-complete apache2-mod_mono

created a virtual host:
<VirtualHost *:80>
        ServerAdmin _EMAIL_
        ServerName _SERVERNAME_
        DocumentRoot /var/www/html/monoapp
        MonoServerPath BPEManager "/usr/bin/mod-mono-server4"
        MonoDebug BPEManager true
        MonoApplications BPEManager "/:/var/www/html/BPEManager"
        MonoSetEnv BPEManager MONO_IOMAP=all

        <Location "/">
                Allow from all
                Order allow,deny
                MonoSetServerAlias BPEManager
                SetHandler mono
                SetOutputFilter DEFLATE
                SetEnvIfNoCase Request_URI ".(?:gif|jpe?g|png)$" no-gzip dont-vary
        <IfModule mod_deflate.c>
          AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/html text/plain text/xml text/javascript

and when starting apache I am seeing this in my /var/log/messages:
Jun  1 14:28:35 myrhel7 systemd: Started The Apache HTTP Server.
Jun  1 14:28:35 myrhel7 kernel: mono[12819]: segfault at 0 ip 0000000000516f64 sp 00007ffd5bb7aed0 error 6 in mono-sgen[400000+3b0000]

and when attempting to access my mono application it gets an error 503.  This same configuration works fine on a RHEL 6 system with the http://download.mono-project.com/repo/centos6/ repo, only RHEL 7 and centos7 repo have the issue.
Comment 3 Alexander Köplinger [MSFT] 2017-06-02 01:24:49 UTC
Hm, seems to be a runtime issue to me given that you get a segfault. I'm going to move it over there.
Comment 4 Jerod Venema 2017-06-27 22:42:35 UTC
Has there been any movement on this ticket? Or workarounds?
