Alerted of crash upon logging is, drop down menus don't work
« on: January 23, 2018, 09:13:34 am »
Hi,
I'm running 2.4.2p1 on my own hardware.  It's been running fine for a year or so.  A few days ago I found an error message at login alerting me that there was a crash, and giving me a choice to report it to developers (did that).

The problem is now drop down menus don't work.  Here's what's in the crash :

Suggestions welcome :)

Hi,

I can do some magic for you  ;)
Somehow, I discovered that your error is probably not related to pfSense, but originated from a package that you installed later on.
So, the most simple way lower the change that something crashes, is using a "pure" pfSense without any third party software. (read : remove all packages and you'll be fine, and if not : far better then now)

Btw : the support of the package is here : pfSense Forum pfSense English Support Packages pfBlockerNG (Moderator: BBcan177).

I'm pretty sure that BBcan177 has no access to your crash-dump. You'll have to work this out the old fashioned way : start feeding your posts a lot of details.

Thanks Gertjan, I guess I need to find a way to remove this package from CLI.


EDIT: just to confirm that, after removing the pfblockerng package, all is well again.   :D

That line in the code on Line #1771 is for the download of Feeds. I don't see any issues with the code and can only assume that that you had a hard drive failure or a file corruption issue... I would just suggest a reinstall of the package.
