magickwand causing segfaults issue

Post by leegraphics »


I'm having an issue with module causing segfaults on my server.

I'm running:

CentOS 5.8
imagick module version 3.1.0RC2
ImageMagick 6.7.8-8 2012-10-10 Q16
MagickWand 1.0.8
PHP 5.3.18

Seems the segfaults are causing a lot of errors which loads up the memory and brings down the server. I was wondering if there was a solution to this or is this a bug or incompatibility issue?

Thanks for your help.

I am no expert on this, but I believe there may be issues with OpenMP on certain Linux boxes, but I don't recall which. Do you have OpenMP enabled (usually by default). You will see if it is there when you do

convert -version

If it is there, you might try compiling with it disabled in your ./configure command.
